"You Know How I Feel" A Tribute to Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, and Joni Mitchell
Lynne Arriale (piano), Carla Cook (vocals), and Grace Kelly (saxes) performed two sets at Club Hancher at The Mill on Friday, October 30.
Their musicality was excellent. I was disappointed there were not more Joni Mitchell tunes.
Fantastic concert. I’ve listened to Lynne Arriale (mostly her trio work) for years. She is of course exceptionally talented and has a unique style in her arrangements. It’s very easy to tell when she’s done the arrangement. Grace Kelly was especially amazing. I can’t believe someone that young can play the saxophone like that. She played like a veteran. I’m sure we will be hearing more from her in the future.
Typically I think the Mill is a perfect place for this kind of music. My only regret with this concert was the very loud kitchen staff. I complained, but it did no good. They continually shouted and slammed dishes throughout the concert. Perhaps the management should notify them when there’s a jazz concert going on and that people actually want to listen to the music.
We absolutely loved this concert! Great setting, so intimate. My husband, son, and his girlfriend all raved about it, and we're all musicians and singers, such a great group.
Thanks again for all your hard work! We really loved loved loved the show!
