Championed by some of music’s most celebrated figures, and with five highly acclaimed CD’s under her belt at the young age of 37, double GRAMMY® nominated jazz vocalist Sara Gazarek remains a strikingly original artist with seemingly limitless potential. Blessed with a gorgeous, translucent voice, excellent pitch, and supple sense of time, Sara has been hailed by the LA Times as “the next important jazz singer,” and “impeccable,” by the Winnipeg Free Press. “Thirsty Ghost” (2019), will prove the inevitable journey of true artistry. Working closely with collaborators Geoff Keezer, Larry Goldings, Josh Johnson, and Stu Mindeman, Gazarek reemerges with a program of emotionally expansive standards, inspired contemporary re-workings, and incredibly memorable originals -- all delivered with her insouciant sense of whole-hearted storytelling and vulnerable artistry. Exploring new instrumentation (with rhythm section, Rhodes, saxophone, trombone, and bass clarinet), Gazarek invites complex colors and concepts in a journey of growth, shadow, and light.
