Sharón Clark Trio

 “I never thought I'd hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah at her best, but now I have.”
JazzTimes
 
“You can’t underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark tears it apart and peers inside.”
- Stephen Holden, New York Times 

An die Musik Live, Cafe Mezzanotte and Jazz Beyond Borders are teaming up
to bring you the jazz concert of the season! 

Looking for holiday cheer? Have the urge to travel? This jazz concert is for you!  Washington, D.C. First Lady of Jazz Sharón Clark, celebrated pianist Chris Grasso, and leading East Coast bassist Amy Shookare known for their heart and soul - and they bring along enough terrific jazz chops to satisfy any listener. These three internationally respected artists will entertain with music of the season and tunes invoking images of the world travel they have become accustomed to on their international tours.

Ease into the holidays with Vince Guaraldi classic "Christmas Time Is Here” and the delightfully enduring “Let it Snow” with lyrics by Sammy and music by Jule Styne. Recall past experiences shared with friends and family and the thrill of travel. They’ll share beloved Vernon Duke tunes "Autumn in New York”  and “April in Paris,” Jimmy Webb’s evocative “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and Brubeck’s “Travelin’ Blues.” 

The Sharón Clark Trio

Says All About Jazz,  "Sharón Clark belongs on the playlist of anyone who listens to Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday or Sarah Vaughan, she is that good!”
