THE SHARON CLARK TRIO
Thurs August 4, 2016
Jazz on Jackson Place welcomes Sharón Clark
, the unrivalled jazz diva of Washington, DC.
“You can’t underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark, a Washington-based jazz and soul diva, tears it apart and peers inside.” The New York Times
The Wall Street Journal put it best, “an absolute triumph. The brilliant Sharón Clark, however, knows how to personalize the songs of Motown or the Beatles, no less than if they were by Gershwin or Rodgers, and offers an object lesson in how to revitalize someone else’s vintage hit. Her approach is firmly rooted in the pantheon of jazz singers, particularly Carmen McRae and especially Sarah Vaughan.
“a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah Vaughn at her best” JazzTimes
