Singer Tierney Sutton and pianist Tamir Hendelman have a musical relationship that goes back over twenty years. In that time, Sutton has racked up nine Grammy nominations for her fourteen albums as leader, and Hendelman has been arranging, recording, and performing with a host of luminaries including Barbra Streisand and Natalie Cole, leading his own trio and being the featured pianist of the Jeff Hamilton Trio as well as the Grammy-Winning Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. Still, Sutton and Hendelman have found time to tour as a duo in Italy, Japan, China and throughout the U.S.

Yet it was the pandemic that cemented and deepened the partnership of these two LA-based artists. Throughout 2020 and 2021, Sutton and Hendelman created and presented live-streamed themed shows as well as creating “By Request” video dedications for fans around the world. Says Sutton: “This is truly one of my very favorite projects. No pianist in the world swings harder than Tamir and he’s an encyclopedia of songs so I’m able to be so free and improvisational. This project is a joy.”

On this concert date, Sutton and Hendelman will be performing Once Upon a Summertime – a cinematic look at our sunniest season.
