"Clifton is not just another jazz singer. She's a young woman with mature artistry and the right instincts. She can take a jazz standard and transform it into something fresh while remaining faithful to the composer's intent." - Victor Schermer • All About Jazz
Meg Clifton North & Top Philly Saxman Victor North hit Rehoboth…
It’s been awhile since Meg Clifton was back in her hometown for anything but a “Home for the Holidays” Dinner…but back in town she is…as Vocalist with her Jazz Quintet…along with a dominating figure in Real Jazz across the Philly Region (he’s also Meg’s husband)….Tenor Sax Artist ~ Victor North!
They bring their Quintet & Jazz Songbook which features Vocalist Meg Clifton North to our True Blue Jazz ‘1st Wednesdays’ Showcase Series at Nassau Valley Vineyards Winery on November 2nd.
‘All About Jazz’ describes Meg as a top Philadelphia Vocalist who is, “…swinging with a fresh and sexy quality and rich with the knowledge of jazz vocal history.” She has performed or recorded with a litany of the best of the Mod Atlantics’ Jazz Artists like Saxophonist Eric Alexander, trumpeter John Swana, bassist Lee Smith and drummer Dan Monaghan. In addition Meg has worked with saxophonists Larry McKenna, Bootsie Barnes, Grant Stewart, and Harry Allen, plus guitarists, Jonathan Kreisberg, Craig Ebner, Pete Smyser & Peter Bernstein.
With his early in investment in Coltrane, & though a transplant in Philly, Victor North certainly has his roots deeply embedded into the “City Of Brotherly Love’s” rich jazz culture. Some of the many great musicians that Victor has had the opportunity to work with since moving to the East Coast are Mickey Roker, Charles Fambrough, John Swana, Orrin Evans, Terrel Stafford, Jimmy Bruno, Duane Eubanks, Byron “Wookie” Landham, organists Pat Bianchi and Jared Gold and he spent five years playing with Afro-Cuban Jazz pianist, Elio Villafranca. Victor appears with Joey De Francesco’s Trio as a regular member, & as a guest performer.
