She’s back again! St. James favorite, jazz singer Marilyn Keller, returns for a third year at our monthly jazz vesper. Marilyn is a 29-year veteran of music and stage performance with a voice that is beyond category. Jazz, Gospel, R&B, Pop, Blues, whatever the genre, Marilyn is more than able to deliver flawless, emotional, heart-breaking vocals. Marilyn has built a career that takes her worldwide as a featured artist in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Spain, Australia and the UK for concerts, festivals, nightclubs and recording work. Her magical voice can be heard on multiple recordings, movie sound tracks, commercials, documentary narratives and demos. Marilyn’s formative jazz training was as a member of the Mt. Hood Community College Vocal Jazz Ensemble and as the vocalist fronting the award-winning MHCC Jazz Lab Band. Marilyn joined the noted Black Swan Classic Jazz Band in 1997, quickly establishing a loyal following in the Dixieland and Ragtime scene. She is featured at the Jazz Worship Service at Augustana Lutheran Church every Sunday and can be seen frequently at restaurants, clubs, festivals and holiday events throughout the Pacific Northwest. Her current solo release is entitled “At Last”. Marilyn continues to awe us with her deep, spiritual renditions of jazz favorites. Don’t miss this month’s Jazz Vespers with Marilyn Keller.
Arrive at 4:50pm for pre-Vespers music with Marilyn and our St. James house band: Mike Horsfall, piano; Laurent Nickel, bass; Brent Follis, drums; and Valarie Brown, cantor. Freewill offering.
