Rebecca Parris Trio - Celebrating a Valentine's Tradition
February 14, 2014
Celebrated jazz vocalist, Rebecca Parris, will perform at The Regent Theatre in Arlington, Massachusetts for one show only. “In Love With Parris,”—a rare Boston appearance—will feature her long-time trio of Brad Hatfield on piano, Peter Kontrimas on bass, and Jim Lattini on drums.
The Regent Theatre is proud to become the home for a 25 year Valentine’s Day tradition in the Boston area—a memorable, romantic evening of impeccable vocal jazz from a beloved icon of the genre. Her fans know there is no better translator of America’s favorite love songs, and have followed her lead to warmth on the most romantic day on the calendar—year after year.
“… Parris gives fresh life to standards and a new gleam to superb, lesser-known gems.
Her intelligence, class, and masterful musicianship have long been respected among her peers….”
-J. Schlesinger, AllAboutJazz.com
“Her voice sets her apart from any other vocalist on record today. A mood that transcends the ordinary, that in one moment exudes warmth and is poignant, in another driving hard and swinging.” -Shirley Horn
“Best of all, she sings with power, conviction, originality, total believability. She is that rare bird: the true jazz singer with the soul of an entertainer.” -Fred Bouchard, Jazz Times
