Well renowned for her original and edgy interpretations of the classic jazz songbook, vocalist Tierney Sutton has been hailed by The New York Times as "a serious jazz artist who takes the whole enterprise to another level." The recipient of numerous honors, including a 2005 Grammy nomination, Ms. Sutton has performed at prestigious venues including New York City's Oak Room and Carnegie Hall and has been featured in popular films and commercials. Her latest album, 2009's 'Desire' offers bittersweet and haunting renditions of classics such as "Skylark", "Fever", and "Whatever Lola wants", proving that Sutton continues to evolve and mature as an artist.
Immediately following Tierney Sutton Quartet will be Regina Carter's Reverse Thread. Time Magazine calls violinist Regina Carter "wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent, and at times breathtakingly daring." As the most recent in a long line of important and eclectic Jazz artists from Detroit (including Tommy Flanagan, Kenny Burrell, Barry Harris, cousin James Carter and others) Regina Carter is as likely to explore that city's rich musical history through the music of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye as she is through Tin Pan Alley and Classical music where she first garnered attention as a member of the Detroit Civic Symphony Orchestra.
