Last year on Thursday April 21 , the most amazing jazz concert took place right here in Dallas. Diane Reeves, Jane Monheit and Nikki Yankofsky all on one stage together. What an exciting night it was. To those folks in the audience not sure of what they would hear, and to those who knew exactly what to expect, it was a magical performance. Standing ovations were the gift for all three Divas, each with their own special and unique vocal talents.
This month is Jazz Appreciation Month nationally and Dallas is celebrating with its own version called DJAM. If you enjoy vocal jazz and the Great American Songbook then be sure to visit the Sammons Center for the Arts as it celebrates the new Sammons Cabaret music series.
On April 19 at 8:00 pm, Sammons Cabaret will feature the talented Dallas Fort Worth vocalist Tatiana Mayfield with her pianist. Lady May as she is referred to, was one of twelve selected finalists in the 2010 Thelonius Monk talent competition at the ripe old age of 20 years old!
Stay tuned for more news about Dallas Jazz Appreciation Month!
