I am pleased to be performing as a celebration of Black History Month at the Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art with the Fredrick Holmes and Company collaboration with artist Ken Moore and with John G. Sanders on keys, Matt Jorgenson on Drums and Osama Afifi on Bass https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4504489?date=2198819
I am excited to have space and the audience to share my story and how this month is magical, emotional and generates so much pride in my soul. I look forward to seeing you all and allowing you to share in a wonderful experience.
Our First "HOT JAZZ AT THE GALLERY" for 2020 - a bimonthly series of jazz-oriented concerts in the gallery - celebrate February's BLACK HISTORY MONTH and honors our featured artist for February, LA-based painter, "KENNETH MOORE: ANOTHER CONVERSATION IN BLACK SURREALITY". (Exhibition Opening and Artist Reception, Thursday, February 6, 2020.) Mr. Moore, age 70, is an avid fan of jazz and owned a Jazz coffee house in LA which is still talked about today by musicians and fans, THE HOWLING MONK.
We're honored to present as the featured performer one of the most sought after vocalists in the Northwest, Ms. JACQUELINE TABOR and THE JACQUELINE TABOR JAZZ BAND. Mrs. Tabor has long been a favorite jazz vocalist, was the 2018 EARSHOT JAZZ VOCALIST OF THE YEAR, and has performed at many of the most prestigious venues in the Pacific Northwest, including Benaroya Hall, The Kirkland Performance Center, and The Edmonds Center For The Arts.
“Tabor has a grasp on multiple genres of music, from jazz to blues, to Americana to traditional ballads. On her latest release, "The Lady in The Gown," she showcases them all with a voice that is very sweet and pervasively easy to listen to.”
-PAUL WILSON, AUDIOPHILE REVIEW
"Jacqueline Tabor’s voice seems to transcend those modest goals by the sheer perfection of the execution. I know this is a personal thing, but there's something about Tabor's voice that is so exquisitely rendering and so flawless. I don't think she sings one single note that isn't the right note, with the perfect amount of sustained vibrato. Yet there's nothing about her voice that isn't deeply human and touched by the emotions contained in the lyrics."
-MARC PHILLIPS, THE VINYL ANACHRONIST
HOT JAZZ AT THE GALLERY continues our dedication to music - which began when the gallery was selected as the VIP Venue for the late Paul Allen's UPSTREAM MUSIC FEST. Music and Visual Art is fundamental to our humanity, soothes the exhausted soul, and elevates our spirit unlike anything else. We're proud to bring these two cultural traditions together for one special night, every other month. Please Join Us!
