With an all-star band featuring some of Minnesota’s finest musicians – Dave Karr, saxophone/clarinet/flute • Tanner Taylor, piano • Terry Burns, bass • Mac Santiago, drums
One of the Twin Cities’ favorite vocalists, Connie can swing the standards with the best of them. And she can hold her own with a Beatles book. And she sounds great in a hot club/gypsy jazz setting. She has recorded CDs with all of these projects and more, and her newest, SWEET HAPPY LIFE, finds her immersed in Brazilian bossa nova and samba songs, including “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Agua de Beber”, “Meditation” and others. SWEET HAPPY LIFE reached #10 on the Jazzweek radio chart and Top Ten in more than 25 markets in the U.S. and Canada.
“Connie Evingson takes the bossa bull by the horns and has produced a true masterpiece” – C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
*See Connie at the Dakota Oct. 26 and receive 20% off tickets for her show “Happy with the Blues – Songs of Peggy Lee” at the Jungle Theater Sunday, Nov. 4.
