East Of The Sun – 2015

Tierney Sutton Quartet

 

An uptempo version of the standard

One of the top jazz singers of the past 20 years, Tierney Sutton has been an increasingly influential vocalist and educator.

She is featured with her long-time group (pianist Christian Jacob, bassist Kevin Axt, and drummer Ray Brinker) in 2015 when she was performing a set of music associated with Frank Sinatra to celebrate Sinatra’s centennial.

Tierney Sutton starts out on “East Of The Sun” singing unaccompanied for a chorus while setting a fast tempo; she then scats with her trio and gives her instrumentalists some solo space before taking the melody out with her own distinctive phrasing.
