Jon Hendricks is one of the world's favorite jazz vocalists and considered to be the "Father of Vocalese" or "scatting". Founder of the legendary trio Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, they took the VOCALESE tradition around the world to great acclaim, influencing generations of jazz musicians. This performance will be one of the most important JAZZLIVE SPECIAL SESSIONS yet. Mr. Hendricks will perform two master classes while in Pittsburgh; one for student musicians and one for local professional musicians. His professorship at the University of Toledo has established him as a superb educator, specializing in the history and art of vocal jazz. Mr. Hendricks will be performing two shows at the Cabaret on April 28th. He will also pay special tribute to the creator of the Vocalese style, Pittsburgh jazz legend, Eddie Jefferson.
The 7:30 PM Show is almost sold out but there are plenty of seats for the 9:30 PM show.
