Rachelle Ferrell is unquestionably one of the most dynamic talents in contemporary pop music. Very few vocal artists in the industry have Ferrell’s potent combination of range, phrasing, and musicianship.
"Ms. Ferrell, who closed the show and who was clearly the reason a good portion of the audience showed up, has one of the more astonishing voices in popular music. By the end she had seemingly sung everything that could be sung, from little specks of sound that pushed into the range of the inaudible to masculine bass notes. She ululated and riffed and held house-wrecking long notes. She sang deep blues and rhythm-and-blues ideas, and gospel melodies, and sang plainly. She shouted. She imitated instruments, and swung deeply." - Peter Watrous-New York Times

Saxophonist Richard Elliot has arrived at a very special anniversary for blowing audiences away with his soulfully robust playing. 2014 marked 30 years since the release of his debut solo album, Initial Approach. Elliot's most recent release presents the most overtly sensual, romantic and intimate album of his career in collaboration with contemporary jazz production/guitar giant Paul Brown. The title of this 17th solo project is Lip Service (the artist’s first for Heads Up/Concord Music Group).
"Quite possibly, the high point of the show came when Richard Elliot performed his rendition of Percy Sledge’s immortal song "When a Man Loves a Woman." The sheer lushness of the melody combined with Elliot’s depth and power on his tenor sax covered the crowd in a warm blanket of seductive sound. He was simply magnificent, powerfully holding notes with perfect pitch, proving once again to be a richly passionate professional." - Randall Parrish/jazzreview.com
