A swinging set from the March 2019 performance featuring this popular Nashville vocalist with the John Birdsong Trio (John Birdsong, bass, Bryan Harrison, piano, and Wendell Henry, drums) with special guest, guitarist Geary Moore.
Paula is a gifted and elegant vocalist who has performed around town for many years, often with longtime collaborators John Birdsong or Sam Levine. At home in jazz and popular styles, her influences include Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughan. Here she leads the band through a swinging evening of jazz standards, including what has become her signature tune, a gorgeous rendition of Nancy Wilson’s “Guess Who I Saw Today.”
Jazz on the Move Redux is presented in cooperation with the Frist Art Museum and features a YouTube stream of a classic Jazz on the Move performance. This month’s feature will be The Life and Music of Nina Simone with Dara Tucker. The concert was originally presented in March 2019 to a standing room-only crowd. The upcoming stream is a chance to see it if you missed the original performance, or to see and hear it again.
The Jazz on the Move series is made possible through generous support from: The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Caterpillar Financial Services, Anne and Peter Neff, The Carolyn Kulkin Fund for Education and Community, Arkiv Jazz, and New City Properties.
