    Kellye Gray at SFJAZZ Center, Joe Henderson Lab From field holler to free voice, the jazz singer has evolved over time to include a wide variety of styles. This concert celebrates the jazz singer. Kellye's 'voice as instrument' brand illustrates the jazz vocal artist in all it's different forms. She can blow hard, scatting and be-bopping along with the cats while swinging so hard you can't help but move to the beat. Her phrasing and improvisation nurtures each word breathing life into the lyrics. And, she can take you all the way down to the bottom of the blues. It takes a talent as vast as Ms. Gray's to bring it all to life before your very ears. As Christopher Loudon of JazzTimes magazine says, "Gray's is an impressive, indeed frighteningly vast talent." Join us to celebrate 'the jazz singer'. "This is a jazz singer of rare air." says the International Music Review.Artist PersonnelKellye Gray vocalsAdam Shulman pianoMarcus Shelby bassJeff Marrs drumsArtist Websitekellyegray.com"Clearly demonstrating that jazz singing can stretch the envelope of creativity without sacrificing a direct connection with an audience.

    Kellye Gray at SFJAZZ Center, Joe Henderson Lab With her stunning musicality and warm, enveloping voice, Texas native Kellye Gray is one of the most accomplished jazz vocalists on the national scene. Over her twenty-year career, Grays profile has continued to grow by leaps and bounds. She has recorded a half-dozen albums as a leader and logged performances at Lincoln Center, the Spoleto Festival and Yoshis. Now a Bay Area resident, Gray recorded her 2007 CD live at Berkeleys Jazzschool with a formidable trio including pianist Otmaro Ruiz and fiery Cuban drummer Jimmy Branly. For her SFJAZZ Center debut, she performs an intimate show in the Joe Henderson Lab to celebrate the release of her new album, And, They Call Us Cowboys: The Texas Music Project, which re-imagines the timeless and diverse music of the Lone Star State through the filter of Grays jazz sensibility. Join us for this very special night, showcasing Kellye Grays entrancing gift for song that made the USA Today call her simply one the most exciting jazz singers.Artist PersonnelKellye Gray vocalsJake Langley guitarPamela York pianoMarcus Shelby bassDavid Flores drumsArtist Websitekellyegray.com"Simply one of the most exciting jazz singers.
