Once in a while, a musician comes along with impeccable technique, deep understanding of the jazz repertoire, an innate tendency to swing and the rare ability to communicate the heart and soul of a tune to listeners. That musician is Beegie Adair. Join Beegie Adair (piano), Roger Spencer (bass) and Chris Brown (drums) with special guest Monica Ramey (vocals) for the Performing Arts Series fall offering.
Hailed as “one of the finest piano players in the world” by Entertainment News and “an accomplished artist with a delicate touch” by JazzTimes magazine, Beegie has 32 recordings to her name, counting all six projects in her box set. She has also appeared on scores of other projects throughout her extensive career. The Beegie Adair Trio recently released their first live concert album, “The Real Thing.”
“Hearing the instruments in the room with you is quite different from having a recording come into your house that was done in a studio,” Beegie explains. “There’s a special atmosphere created at live performances, and that’s the real thing.”
