Vocalist Kim Nalley, Sunday at the Bach
Kim Nalley-vocals, Tammy Hall -piano, Michael Zisman -bass, Kent Bryson- drums, Josh Workman- guitar
Kim Nalley, in looks and presence, exudes the aura of a diva from a by-gone era. Vocally, she has pipes to burn packing a 3 1/2 octave range that can go from operatic to gritty blues on a dime, projection that can whisper a ballad yet is capable of filling a room with no microphone, and the ability to scat blistering solos without ever losing the crowd’s interest or the intense swing. She has been compared to all the greats, but in the end, it’s Kim Nalley and no one else - an unforced instrument with clarity and jazzy musicality, effortlessly delivered, and a sense of humor to boot.
