Walk through the history of jazz
Internationally acclaimed multilingual vocalist and recording artist Allison Adams Tucker and her trio return to the informal and intimate setting of the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center on Sunday, Jan. 16, at 2:30 p.m.
The public is invited for a musical walk through the history of jazz and how it has touched the world – from the advent of swing and the Big Band era to Latin jazz and the birth of the bossa nova, and the ever-evolving Great American Songbook.
Adams Tucker has been hailed by critics as “an astonishing singer with impeccable pitch and crystal clear diction,” with a voice as “supple as silk and smooth as cashmere.”
Also featuring pianist Melonie Grinnell and bassist Justin Grinnell, the trio celebrates the reopening of the “Pleasure of Your Company” concert series sponsored by Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library with a program of “world jazz with urbane cool.”
There is no charge for the concert, which is sponsored by the Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library, although donations are appreciated.
The Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center is located at 10301 Scripps Lake Drive. Overflow parking is available on Meanley Drive off Scripps Ranch Boulevard. Visit srfol.org or call (858) 538-8158 for information.
