There’s no description more apt for Sheryl Bailey than “A sizzling guitar goddess.” She is a NYC based musician with incredible chops and impecable taste. Just Jazz Guitar magazine rates her “among the best bop guitar players with a fresh approach and something new.” And Vintage Guitar terms her “one of jazz guitars current front runners.” Sheryl’s most recent recording “A New Promise” is a tribute to late guitar great Emily Remler, with the all-star Pittsburgh band, Three Rivers Jazz Orchestra.
Cynthia Mullis is a versatile, accomplished saxophonist and jazz artist. She lived and worked in New York City from 1993-2000. During her time in NYC, Cynthia studied with Jimmy Heath and played with the all-women big band Diva. Since moving to Seattle from New York City in 2000, she has become an active member of the Pacific Northwest music scene. Cynthia is a valued side-person in numerous ensembles, including The Jason Parker Quartet and the Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra.
While in NYC, Cynthia recorded and performed with Sheryl Bailey. Cynthia and Sheryl will be performing together again for the first time in over a decade at Tula’s on November 11th. It will be an exciting evening of jazz originals and standards, with Jose Martinez on drums and Chris Symer on bass.
