Thursday December 20 7:30pm
VR Smith Group – TICKETS
Jazz vocalist Verna Rose “VR” Smith and her husband Putter Smith have devoted their lives to music and the arts. The South Pasadena residents have been fixtures in the LA jazz scene for years. A long residency at the intimate Cafe Beaujolais in Eagle Rock spawned the album VR & The Cafe Beaujolais Band — Lost and Found. Her vocal style is intentional and introspective. The clarity and gentle rasp of VR’s voice and her unique phrasing really distinguish her. Putter Smith has played bass with some legends including Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Billy Eckstine and countless others. Joining VR and Putter will be Riner Scivally on guitar, Chuck Manning on sax, and Tim Pleasant on drums.
