Andrea Claburn • FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17, 8 PM

A giant of 20th century vocal jazz, Betty Carter’s career spanned five decades and influenced countless jazz musicians. From her early days with Lionel Hampton to her preeminence as a bebop improviser to her wildly original compositions, Betty Carter was a totally unique artist, legendary bandleader, and musical innovator. Vocalist Andrea Claburn will celebrate Betty’s legacy in a performance of Carter’s original compositions, as well as some of her iconic arrangements of standards. Andrea will be joined by a world-class trio featuring Matt Clark on piano, Sam Bevan on bass and Alan Hall on drums, in what promises to be an electrifying evening of improvised music.

“There’s really only one jazz singer – only one: Betty Carter.” – Carmen McRae

“Andrea comes to this concert with an arsenal of incredible arrangements and transcriptions from one of our great American jazz singers. Few have ventured into this territory, so I applaud her courage and skill set. It will, without question, be a very dynamic show.” – Laurie Antonioli, Chair, Vocal Program, California Jazz Conservatory
