TONIGHT, APRIL 9
TIERNEY SUTTON / HUBERT LAWS / LARRY KOONSE
The Seasons Yakima
101 North Naches Avenue, Yakima, WA
Tonight at The Seasons in Yakima three legends of jazz come together to present a one-of-a-kind evening of music.
Hubert Laws: The powerhouse flute player with a straight decade of “Best Flutist” awards from Downbeat magazine (as well as this year’s), bedazzled the jazz and classical world in the 1970’s and since by issuing a series of albums in both disciplines with one masterful performance after another. He continues to be regarded as the best flute player in the world, spanning both classical & jazz.
Larry Koonse: One of the best known guitarists on the West Coast is on everyone’s “must-play-with” list. A current recording artist and member of the LA Jazz Quartet, he boasts stints with many of the great jazz musicians and ensembles of the last two decades, and as a soloist with orchestras around the world. He one of the most sought-after studio musicians, building a discography in the 100’s while recording with everyone from Mel Tormé to Linda Ronstadt to Al Hirt.
Tierney Sutton is a legend in the making: perennial Grammy nominee (including her latest CD “Desire”), chart-topper, and, as Seasons-goers know, amazing jazz vocalist. She has appeared here several times in spell-binding performances. Here she is performing with her usual band. Though she will be performing with different musicians during her performance at The Seasons, you can get a feel for what a talented vocalist she is.
