Duke Arts Presents

Gretchen Parlato Quartet

Friday, April 12, 2013 | 9:00 pm

Motorco Music Hall

With her crystalline voice and “deep, almost magical connection to the music” — says Herbie Hancock — the young jazz singer Gretchen Parlato is the cream of the crop. “Naturally restrained and controlled, more Ella Fitzgerald than Sarah Vaughn” (NY Times), this Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition winner puts her inimitable imprint, tinged with Brazilian music and R&B, onto the classic jazz songbook. At Motorco, an accessible venue where Parlato will shine, piano, bass, and drums provide sultry support for “the most original jazz singer in a generation” (Boston Globe).
