Barbara Hunter - Mar 29

The Barbara Hunter Quartet and Achyutan Quartet -   Enjoy a variety of music, balanced with fresh arrangements of familiar jazz and popular standards!  Passion!  A rhythm section of awesomely talented and supportive musicians!  This is one of the band's many returns to 57th Street Gallery, where they always come up with a surprise or two.

Word is that once you step inside the Gallery and hear the Quartet you will find it impossible to leave until the very last note has been played and the last word sung. Please come check out the band and lend your support to live music.

Singing is always something Sheebah Maceo did from a very young age, although, she was too shy to do it out loud; and music was her constant companion.  She spend countless hours listening to Tchiakowsky's, "Swan Lake",  Broadway musicals such as "Carousel" and her favorite, George Gershwin's, "Rhapsody in Blue" in the corner of her grandmother's living room in the house where she grew up; and the radio stayed tuned to station KDIA where she listened to all the R&B and Blues artists who are now legendary and iconic.  It was at her aunt and uncles house she listened to the jazz greats of their era such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, etc, who still remain unparalled even by today's standards.  They had one of those big, console stereos in a wooden cabinet and she was too little to see over the top!

So, she would stand tip-toed while hanging onto the edge of the stereo with both hands and her teeth!  She remembers needing to see the record spin on the disc because she wanted to see who or what was making these incredible sounds!  She remembers the phenomenal sound of that music; and, when she would lay against those speakers... that music, absolutely went right through her!   The music made everything beautiful.

Musicians are Barbara Hunter, vocals/flute/saxophone; Ben Flint, piano; Joe McKinley, bass; Ken Pruitt, electric guitar; Achyutan, drums and special guest vocalist Sheebah Maceo.

(Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 8:30pm-11:00pm; doors open at 6:00pm)
