Since the early 2000’s award winning vocalist and songwriter Gretchen Parlato has justly earned a reputation as one of the most inventing and mesmerizing vocalists of her generation. In 2021 she released FLOR, a project honoring her love and admiration of Brazilian music and her first studio recording in nearly a decade. “This project is a reflection of a time of putting myself aside and being completely present as a mom,” says Parlato. “I’m finally able to find the balance between artistic creativity and nurturing motherhood. My purpose has both a higher and deeper meaning. There is a story to tell, now…of who I am in this role, and how that is reflected in the music.” The album has earned Parlato her second Grammy Award nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Parlato’s ensemble on this concert date will also feature Taylor Eigsti on piano and keyboards, Ben Williams on bass, and Malachi Whitson on drums
