October 7 @ 5:30 pm
Stephanie Porter – Vocals; Steve Yusen – Drums; Michael Barnett – Bass; Bill Anschell – Piano
Stephanie Porter is a premier jazz vocalist who lives to sing. Her recordings have charted on the top 10 nationally and internationally. Musically inspired at an early age. Stephanie found herself mesmerized by music and the many layers of interpretations of songs by both instrumentalists, as-well-as vocalists. Moved particularly by jazz and it’s progression of energy combined with cool.
A stylist that has been influenced by music …music and its many styles. “It’s difficult to define a specific artist as my major influence… Music is like a painting or a garden. How do you choose a color or flower? I am inspired by individuality and love to hear different interpretations from creative artists. I strive to be true to the songs I sing, honest with the audiences listening and enveloped in creativity with my band.”
Seattle Jazz Vespers, now in our 15th season, is a secular concert of professional jazz music, for those who love jazz, with an inspirational message.
Join us for our monthly concert hosted in the beautiful historic gothic sanctuary of Seattle First Baptist on First Hill at the corner of Harvard and Seneca streets. Free parking at the rear of the church. These concerts are an opportunity for jazz lovers throughout the city to hear Seattle’s best groups in a concert setting.
Seattle Jazz Vespers is free and open to the public on the first Sunday night of each month (October through June) at 6:00 p.m. No tickets or reservations are needed. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Come early for best seating.
The artists will perform one set and during their break a “free-will” offering will be taken to help support the musicians, followed by a short non-sectarian inspirational message. The performers’ second set will conclude the two-hour vespers concert. After the concert, join the artist downstairs for light refreshments, conversation and a visit to their CD table.
