Tickets and information

Mary Stallings celebrates the release of her highly anticipated album Songs Were Made to Sing. Simply one of the best jazz singers of our time, Stallings is particularly admired as an important interpreter of ballads. The New York Times says she is “polished, self-possessed and close to the ground, with blues and gospel language on simmer. And she’s a wizard of the long tone, which she uses to laser into deep emotional zones; she leaves brackets of silence, and phrases with microscopic care.” And, The Wall Street Journal calls her “our greatest living link to the late, great (Carmen) McRae.”
