Jazz concert

Jazz vocalist Nicole Pasternak will perform from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, March 11 at the Community Presbyterian Church, 800 W. Main St., Payson

Pasternak has developed an enthusiastic audience in the Northeast U.S. with her honest, straight-ahead style, and equal energy for Swing songs, bebop, ballads and Latin jazz.

“People tell me my attitude on stage is energetic and contagious to them. They say that they feel good watching me engaged in the music; it engages them too,” says Nicole. “

An East Coast music critic wrote of Pasternak, “This sassy jazz singer has a beautiful, crystal clear tone and bright manner that never obscures her impressive Bop chops. Pasternak allows plenty of room for her band to solo, but she is always firmly in control of the proceedings. This is an upscale, nightclub (singer) that fans of gritty jazz should enjoy.”

She will be accompanied by Lew Turano of Sedona on piano; Steve Douglas of Phoenix on bass; and Gerry Reynolds of Strawberry on drums.

A $5 donation at the door includes light refreshments.
