Judy was a big hit at a private party where she had been invited to sing two of her Spanish numbers as part of the program introducing a culinary tour of Spain being co-ordinated by a well known Napa restauranteur.
We had a chance to sing last night with Judy Hall's quartet during our friend/mentor Connie Ducey's duo gig with Philip Williams at The Seahorse - part of Noel Jewkes' Tuesday Night Jazz Jam. Unfortunately, Noel was unable to be there.
He was missed, but several terrific instrumentalists sat in on flute (Carol Issacs) and acoustic guitar, and enriched the sound. The young bassist Ryan Lukas was a real trouper and played skillfully for three hours without a break!
Ricki and Mardi each sang a solo while Judy was out doing her Five Rhythms Dance (you GO girl! ) When Judy arrived, she generously offered to use her slot for the trio to do "Perfidia". Conveniently, Judy sings lead and also solos on that tune.
The band and the audience all seemed to enjoy the performance. We got some fuzzy iPhone pictures which we can add to our slideshow.
I' m Mardi, the redhead.
