Carol Leslie @ BOP STOP
When: Apr 13, 2019, 8:00pm - 11:00pm
Where: BOP STOP
CAROL LESLIE, jazz vocalist from Scotland, makes a return visit to the Bop Stop on Saturday April 13th at 8pm. She is joined by premier musicians to cover jazz, R & B, contemporary and blues from some of the greats such as Diana Krall, Sarah Vaughan, Lady Gaga, Judy Garland, Diane Shuur, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse, and more! Come hear this “Celtic lass with blue-eyed soul” pay homage to her American counterparts, from swing to torch songs; there is much to delight the discerning ear.
On keys is Rock Wehrmann - Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, Cleveland Pops Orchestra, on faculty at KSU, CSU and University of Akron, and has appearances on recordings by prominent jazz artists such as Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock.
On drums and percussion is the lady of rhythm herself, Sunny Tabler, entrepreneur and jazz musician. An Oberlin graduate in jazz percussion, Africana studies and economics, she is fast becoming the drummer of choice with her intelligent interpretation of rhythms, layering her beat melodies with sophistication and artistry.
On upright bass is a frequent flyer at the Bop Stop, Aidan Plank, also of Oberlin, who plays with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra. Aidan has his own quartet, “Pulse,” and is a composer and educator at KSU, Cuyahoga Community College, and at Skyline Music.
This is a show not to be missed! Reserve your seats early.
