Event Description

Simmering ballads, swinging jazz, and soulful blues — these descriptions barely scratch the surface of what you’ll experience at this special performance. Vocalist Kim Nalley and saxophonist Houston Person have developed their legendary reputations individually throughout the jazz world, but when together, the resulting sound is right up there with the amazing performances of Billie Holiday and Lester Young. “Sultry-voiced Kim Nalley brings an irresistibly sexy sense of swing, rhythmic dexterity, and beautiful sound to the classics, with her crisp diction and playful delivery of earthy lines,” said DownBeat magazine. Houston Person has dozens of recordings to his name that routinely make the “best jazz albums of all time” lists, including some with artists such as vocalist Etta James, pianist Horace Silver, organist Charles Earland, and others.
