JAZZ ALLEY: Cocoa Martini
from Earshot Jazz: Cocoa Martini is a dynamic and elegant jazz ensemble featuring three exceptional vocalists â€“ Karen Shivers, Kimberly Reason, and Kay Bailey â€“ backed by the crackling band of Bill Anschell on piano, Bernie Jacobs on saxophone and flute, Chris Clark on bass, and Greg Williamson on drums. Together, the ensemble presents a repertoire of straight-ahead jazz, R&B and pop music in a fresh and emotionally resonant style. Formed out of a desire to pay homage to the creative genius of the African American community and the lasting presence of jazz in the world, Cocoa Martini has treated many audiences to powerful, witty, and irresistibly honest live performances, often featuring personal and entertaining stories to accompany each song.
