After her tremendously popular Sarah Vaughan concerts, Florida jazz vocalist Synia Carroll  invited California singer Scotty Wright to collaborate on her newest project:

“Sweet Embraceable You: The Songs of Sarah Vaughan and Billy Eckstine”.

To celebrate these iconic performers, with their unique style and unmistakable sound, pianist and Music Director Billy Marcus has enlisted saxophonist Jeremy Carter, bassist Don Mopsick, and drummer Stephen Bucholtz to help this music come alive.

There will be two performances: Monday April 8, at Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, and Friday April 12, at the Side Door, Palladium Theatre, in St Petersburg.

“It was very easy doing duets with Sass, where most people thought it would be a hard thing. But we were just alike – we knew where each other was going…”   Billy Eckstine

“My friend, my father, my buddy, Mr Billy Eckstine…”  Sarah Vaughan

Don’t miss “When Synia and Scotty Meet Sarah and Mr B”!
