Vivian Lee and Cynthia Douglas Pay Tribute To Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan

Swinging Easy On 52nd Street

  

After Prohibition, Manhattan’s 52nd Street became the home all of the city’s jazz clubs for the next 30 years. Every jazz musician of note played there during that period including jazz vocal legends Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan.

This Sunday, Sacramento jazz vocalists Cynthia Douglas and Vivian Lee are presenting a special show, “Swinging Easy on 52nd Street: The Music of Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan,” in conjunction with the 11th Anniversary of the Sunday Evening Jazz Series at JB’s Lounge in the Clarion Inn. The two musicians join us today to talk about the show.

To make a reservation for the show, call 916 723-5517.
