Jazz at the Chimes presents an afternoon of eclectic repertoire with pianist/composer Larry Vuckovich and vocalist Jackie Ryan. The Beyond Category quartet will include percussionist and five-time Grammy nominee John Santos. Concert followed by a meet & greet with the artists.
At this concert, listeners will be treated to an array of musical selections from Vuckovich’s eclectic repertoire. “I call my group Beyond Category because we play music that embraces swinging bebop, contemporary jazz, modal/on-the-edge/Balkan-Middle Eastern-Roma (gypsy) ethnic fusion, flamenco, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, down-home blues and jazz tango,” said Vuckovich.
Joining the group will be the gifted vocalist Jackie Ryan who moves audiences with her 3 ½ - octave range and warm stage presence. She will be singing tunes featured on her new CD “Listen Here,” which will be released on January 15. Concertgoers will hear selections ranging from blues & gospel, to luscious love songs, perhaps a Spanish ballad or a Gershwin tune.
