Jackie Ryan (Sept 6)

This show is SOLD OUT.
A WAITING LIST is available.

“One of the outstanding jazz vocalists of her generation and, quite possibly, of all time… rivaling the dexterous sass of Sarah Vaughan, the instinctive smarts of Carmen McRae and the scintillating verve of Diana Krall.”
– Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

Vocalist Jackie Ryan has soared to national attention in recent years, as her three most recent CDs have dominated the jazz radio charts, each spending copious time as #1 in the nation. And it’s no wonder why. She boast huge control over a 3½ octave range and has honed her craft through years of performance across multiple genres (swing, latin jazz, r&b…) alongside a long roster of musical greats that includes Toots Thielemans, Clark Terry, Buddy DeFranco, Scott Hamilton, John Clayton, Gerald Clayton, Jon Mayer, Barry Harris and Jon Hendricks… to mention but a few.

Jackie joins Anton as well as Bay Area jazz luminaries Larry Dunlap (piano) and John Wiitala (bass) for two special nights at the loft.
(See also Friday’s performance.)
