A century on, Ella Fitzgerald still holds her title “The First Lady of Song.” Her recordings with “Virtuoso” guitarist Joe Pass still remain unmatched in the realm of duo Jazz recordings. With the release of Comes Love, Patrice Williamson and Jon Wheatley pay tribute to, and renew the beauty and intimacy of guitar and voice as they interpret the Great American Songbook and the much loved tunes of Fitzgerald and Pass.
Patrice Williamson's fluent scat style and sensitive ballad work have earned her Boston Magazine's "Best of Boston" award and several Boston Music Award nominations. She's been heard at both the Tanglewood and Marblehead Jazz Festivals, as well as at the International Women's Forum in Singapore. She is also actively passing on her knowledge and love of the jazz tradition through her teaching at The New School of Music in Cambridge, Wellesley College, and Milton Academy.
Jon Wheatley is one of Boston’s busiest and best guitarists and educators. His career spans more than three decades, including as a sideman with luminaries like Scott Hamilton, Ruby Braff, Alan Dawson, Teddy Kotick, Diana Krall, Mike Metheny, to name a few. Jon is Associate Professor of Guitar at Berklee College of Music.
The event will be held on Saturday, October 28th at 7:30pm at the Follen Church Society, 755 Massachusetts Ave., Lexington. The cost is $10.00.
