You Go To My Head with Ellen Robinson and The Don't Wait Too Long Band
"She treats a lyric like a friend. Her thoughtful voicings keep you paying attention to the words, with that rare ability to make you think she's right there talking to you." Jazzweekly

This concert will showcase Ellen's signature mix of jazz standards, modern pop and a sprinkling of blues, all delivered with her personal twist. The stories and emotions in these tunes, as well as the music itself, will transport you and may even "go to your head." Jazz singer, songwriter, bandleader, educator and choral director Ellen Robinson started her career as a singer-songwriter in New York City and shifted to jazz after coming to the Bay Area in the 80's. She has become known as an artist with a clear, heartfelt vision, exquisite taste, and lovely voice that lingers in your ear long after the music has finished.

"Turn her loose on songs that have interesting harmonic content and need emotional interpretationand that's when she cooks." Downbeat Magazine

Ellen will be joined by her stellar band:

John Wiitala (bass) veteran musician who has worked with many vocalists including Jacqui Naylor, Wesla Whitfield and Jackie Ryan.

Erik Jekabson (trumpet) composer/educator, leads his own ensembles and has performed with Illinois Jacquet, John Mayer and Lavay Smith.

David Rokeach (drums) versatile player who has toured with Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Ernestine Anderson and Mark Murphy.

Murray Low (piano) educator, nominated for a Grammy and for Pianist of the Year by the Latin Jazz Corner, member of Charged Particles trio.
