Melody Stanford Jazz Combo with Andy Lantz
With a style that reveals a deep appreciation for the Great Ladies of jazz, audiences often describe Melody Stanford's performances as "mesmerizing," and her sound as a "voice of a thousand colors." Melody grew up singing in church as Pentecostal minister's daughter in the town of Santa Maria, CA. After studying classical voice for several years, her passion for the Great American Songbook solidified while living in Chicago. Like many jazz artists, while she is largely self-taught, Melody's performances are anything but ordinary. This show will feature the combo and especially the piano styling of Andy Lantz.
