Dara Tucker Quartet – Evenings of Intimate Jazz

February 20, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$7 – $30

Presented by The Arts Council, Inc., the Dara Tucker Quartet is the second performance in the 2016 season of Evenings of Intimate Jazz.

Dara Tucker is a vocalist who blends the soulful creaminess of Nancy Wilson with the sass ’n’ grit of Dinah Washington.” – Christopher Loudon – JazzTimes

Dara has an unpretentious ebullience that comes naturally and is a central facet of her music. She exerts an absolute authority with dynamics and tempo, has a whimsical flair for harmony, and a fondness for florid romanticism. She had a unique way of feathering a steady pulse that will keep you listening and pleading for more!

During her brief career, Dara Tucker has already managed to catch the ear of some of the most significant figures in jazz such as vocalist Cassandra Wilson, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith and saxophonist Benny Golson. Within the last two years, Tucker has won audiences on such stages as The Blue Note (NYC), The San Jose Jazz Festival, Smoke Jazz Club (NYC), Snug Harbor (New Orleans, LA), Yale University’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas, Sculler’s in Boston, MA, Nighttown in Cleveland, OH and the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame.

Peeling away the layers of her diverse background sheds ample light on her unorthodox path to becoming a significant contemporary voice on the vocal jazz scene.
