The Emerald City Jazz Kings: "Why Don't You Do Right?, The classic female vocalists"

The Jazz Kings close their 19th season with a focus on those great female vocalists who shared the stage with jazz ensembles but never made it to the stardom or mega-stardom enjoyed by Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday. But in fact, these phenomenal vocalists were stars in their own wonderful ways, as this sparkling evening will evidence! A few nods to Ella, Billie, and Peggy, of course, before turning to exquisite sides by Anita O’Day, Julie London, Helen Ward, Marion Hutton, and Helen Forrest. Look for beauts as “Cry Me A River”, “Hold Tight”, “The Peanut Vendor”, “Goody, Goody”, “Is That All There Is”, “I Only Have Eyes For You”, and “Why Don’t You Do Right?”.
