Mary Stallings

Thursday, October 17 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The career of Vocalist Mary Stallings is like a shining celestial body that has flashed on again / off again in the jazz constellation of brilliantly gifted Artists & Performers. She is recognized among the greats…the treasured & the tenured musicians of American Jazz that are still out there on the circuit, performing a songbook that is ingrained in their soul because they have lived through that time period in jazz when this great wealth of music that we call Jazz Standards was conceived, and performed fresh before audiences…often for the very first time.

It’s that kind of musical depth that enables a singer to embrace, & truly inhabit a lyric. Invested with immense talent & sensibility as a young vocalist, her pathway unfolded before her paved with a galaxy of Jazz Greats spanning the decades like; Count Basie, Billy Eckstine, Cal Tjader, “Sweets” Edison, Gene Harris, Monty Alexander & Clark Terry…on through to todays’ fiery new generation musicians that are following their own road towards the bright light of true, real American Jazz such as Emmet Cohen, Joe Farnsworth, & Wycliffe Gordon.

Born in San Francisco, she resides there today, & still performs there & other West Coast area venues. Her time spent on the East Coast is select & precious among Fans of Real Jazz! Upcoming show dates will swing her through Denver & down into the Southwest…& before Mary Stallings makes her return Dizzy’s Club in NYC come mid-December…she will, to your good fortune, make a stop Rehoboth Beach Delaware to perform at the True Blue Jazz Festival….for One Show Only on Thursday October 17th.

Backed by a trio of the top tier in Philly Jazz Musicians, Mary Stallings will come to True Blue Jazz accompanied by the masterful piano artistry of Aaron Graves, who had cradled to incomparable vocal stylings of “Little” Jimmy Scott in his final years of performing. Aaron will be supported by Grammy Winning Bassist, Lee Smith…along with the soild steadiness of Drummer, Byron”Wookie” Landham.

Don’t let this moment in Jazz History pass you by!
