San Francisco transplant and 2007 MAC award nominee for Outstanding Jazz vocalist, Mychelle Colleary will spend Tuesdays in August at the Metropolitan Room exploring some new arrangements and original tunes with her favorite coconspirators: David Budway on piano, Essiet Essiet on bass, Mayra Casala on Percussion, and Sylvia Cuenca on drums, following Annie Ross' 7:00PM set.
This latest jazz offering playfully explores the idea that August is Romance Awareness Month"... because recognizing a problem is half the battle.
Hip, flip, and always sure of herself... tongue-in-cheek edge... sassy... her vulnerability and open emotionality seem to be her truest assets... a singer who takes chances vocally... a confident voice with engaging nuances... riveting
~ John Hoglund, Backstage
