River St., featuring live music by international recording artist Shana Tucker and The Christian Tamburr Trio on Wednesday, April 26.

This special evening of music will take listeners on a lyrical journey into the lives and songs of legendary vocalists including Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. “Great Ladies of Jazz” will feature renowned vocalist and musical storyteller Shana Tucker backed by internationally acclaimed jazz pianist and vibraphonist Christian Tamburr, bassist Billy Thornton and drummer Al Sergel IV.

The Howard University graduate calls her musical style “ChamberSoul” and is known for dynamic, engaging live performances blending jazz, roots, folk and R&B. All About Jazz has called Tucker a “multitalented vocalist” with a “bright, bluesy, jazzy” style.
