Jamie Davis, Vocalist for the Count Basie Orchestra to Appear at Catalina's

Jazz vocalist Jamie Davis, headlining vocalist of the Count Basie Orchestra from 2000- 2003,will appear at Catalina's Bar and Grill for one day, August 29, 2006. Appearing with Mr. Davis will be Shelly Berg-piano, Gregg Field-drums, Scotty Barnhart- trumpet, James Leary-bass, Charles McNeil-saxophone.

This all-star group will perform songs from Jamie's new CD It's a Good Thing a recording featuring the superb singer fronting a first rate big band made up of members of the Basie organization and some of Los Angeles' finest instrumentalists, conducted by Shelly Berg. Produced by legendary Sly and the Family Stone drummer Greg Errico, It's a Good Thing combines swinging arrangements of pop hits by Stevie Wonder and George Harrison with a satisfying mix of Great American Songbook standards and bebop, bossa, ballads and blues. Jamie Davis, blessed with a deep, dark rich voice nurtured in the Pentecostal church, Davis exhibits the influence of the late greats Joe Williams and Lou Rawls, in his own highly personal style.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
