Sheila Jordan in Cold Spring 

nh_sheilajordan.jpg

May 17. Sheila Jordan is the living queen of scat, one of the world's greatest jazz singers. In addition to being a chillingly sensitive interpreter of ballads, Jordan is a peerless improviser whose frequently rhyming flow puts that of most lauded freestyle rappers to shame and has been swinging since the 1950s, when she studied with Lennie Tristano and worked with her former husband, Duke Jordan. The vocalist makes a long-overdue return to the Hudson Valley with this performance at the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown. Backing her on the bandstand will be a formidably capable band comprising saxophonist/flutist Rob Scheps, bassist Cameron Brown, pianist Tom McCoy, and drummer Tony Jefferson. 5:30pm. Donation requested. Cold Spring. (845) 265-3220; Presbychurchcoldspring.org.
