EVENT 6/6/19: Lady Sings, Trumpet Swings! (8-pc Jazz) in South Pasadena

After touring worldwide with the renowned Glenn Miller Orchestra, Los Angeles-based singer Maria Schafer and Dallas-native trumpeter Brad Black visit the Blue Guitar with their hard-swinging 8-piece band — Lady Sings, Trumpet Swings! The band features a blend of hard swinging straight ahead jazz, bouncing bossa novas, dirty blues, jumping trad jazz, and even some modern originals to place the spotlight squarely on “Downbeat darling” Maria Schafer’s impressive vocals and Brad Black’s engaging showmanship and memorable trumpet style. Both artists are featured on Maria’s debut 2018 album, To Know Love, currently playing on 88.1 KKJZ. The New York City Jazz Record called it a “knockout debut.” Riveting Riffs Magazine says it’s “A treat for anyone…evocative vocals enveloped in equally emotive instrumentals.”

The band:
Maria Schafer - Voice
Brad Black - Trumpet
Chad Willis - Trumpet
Phil Menchaca - Trombone
Will Vargas - Sax
Anthony Lucca - Piano
Max Kraus - Bass
Kevin van den Elzen - Drums
