Mary Stallings at Ella Centennial Tribute in SD

(1/1)

malloy:
Just saw Mary Stallings with Mike Wofford who was a pianist for both Sarah Vaughan and Ella.

Incredible! I have not heard her before and was unaware of her accomplishments (http://www.sandiegocountynews.com/san-diegos-copley-symphony-hall-will-host-star-line-jazz-artists-tribute-ella-fitzgerald/

Sang with Count Basie Cal Tjader, Bill Charlap, toured with Ella herself, etc. Incredibly smooth, seasoned performer, whose performance belies her age of 78! 

tmazz:
She did an excellent audiophile recording for Clarity Records back in 1990.

Thanks, got to check this recording out.  I had the pleasure of hearing her sing her version of 'How High the Moon' that night. Still pretty good.
