Nancy Kelly

Nancy Kelly Nancy Kelly will perform at Lovin’ Cup on Sunday, October 26th at 7 p.m. The event will feature the CD release of her new album, B That Way. Singer Nancy Kelly is one of only a handful of real jazz singers who truly embody the sometimes forgotten art of true jazz singing Nancy Kelly’s vocal style is a study in phrasing, style and swing. She’s both old school and new. She’s experienced, yet her delivery and ideas are fresh. She can take a song and turn it up or down, and leave you believing that it was meant to be exactly that way. It takes great jazz chops to do that, and Kelly’s are superb. She has earned many awards and enlisted fans from around the globe.

Arturo Sandoval

Arturo SandovalArturo Sandoval will perform in Kodak Hall at The Eastman Theatre on Sunday on November 2 at 3 pm. A blazing, technically flawless trumpeter from Cuba, Arturo Sandoval has been dazzling audiences all over the world with his supercharged tone and bop-flavored flurries way up in the trumpet’s highest register. In slower numbers, he sports a golden, mellow tone on the flügelhorn, marked with a sure, subtle sense of swing. He is capable of playing anything, proving it more than once by tackling classical repertoire as well as jazz in the same concert, and he has enough curiosity to search far beyond his Cubop base for repertoire.
