About Tierney Sutton and Tamir Hendelman

Every jazz classic is anew when Sutton takes it into her heart and soul.”—All About Jazz

“[Sutton is a] serious jazz artist who takes the whole enterprise to another level.—The New York Times

“First-rate soloing from . . . Hendelman.” —The Los Angeles Times

Singer Tierney Sutton and pianist Tamir Hendelman have a musical relationship that goes back over 20 years. In that time, Sutton has racked up 9 Grammy nominations for her 14 albums as leader, and Hendelman has been arranging, recording, and performing with a host of living legends including Barbra Streisand and Natalie Cole, leading his own trio, and being the featured pianist of the Jeff Hamilton Trio as well as the Grammy-winning Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. Still, Tierney and Tamir found time to tour as a duo in Italy, Japan, China, and throughout the U.S.

Yet it was the pandemic that cemented and deepened the partnership of these two LA-based artists. Throughout 2020 and 2021, Tierney and Tamir created and presented live-streamed themed shows as well as creating “By Request” video dedications for fans around the world.

Says Sutton: “This is truly one of my very favorite projects. No pianist in the world swings harder than Tamir. He’s an encyclopedia of songs so I’m able to be so free and improvisational. This project is a joy.”
