Sunday, July 14, 2024, 2:00-4:00 PM (Pacific).

At an exciting new venue: the beautiful, historic Ebell of Los Angeles!

If you want help deciding whether to come to the concert, check out “Lover Man”, from last year’s concert with the same band. Mary and Houston are rare artists, from an era that is disappearing. Don’t miss this opportunity.

The ticket purchase form is down below their bios. You can also pay at the door.

Mary Stallings

Flying in from San Francisco will be singer Mary Stallings, whom the NY Times called, “…perhaps the best jazz singer singing today…”!

Mary was discovered in 1954 by the legendary Dizzy Gillespie. She sang with many of the famous jazz artists of the day, including Ben Webster, Louis Jordan, Billy Eckstine, Wes Montgomery and Cal Tjader, and shared the stage with Joe Williams, Tony Bennett and Ella Fitzgerald.

Mary spent three years with the Count Basie Band, before retiring at age 33 to raise a family.

Since emerging from retirement, Mary has recorded albums with some of the great jazz pianists, including Gene Harris, Gerald Wiggins, Monty Alexander, Geri Allen and Eric Reed!

Houston Person

Houston Person, coming with John Di Martino from NYC, has recorded more than 75 albums as a bandleader. He has recorded with Charles Brown, Ron Carter, Bill Charlap, Lena Horne, Etta Jones, Lou Rawls, Janis Siegel, Horace Silver, Dakota Staton, Cedar Walton, Grant Green, Johnny “Hammond” Smith, and Richard “Groove” Holmes.

John Di Martino

“John’s soul and being come straight through to his music, the jazz world needs him! “
– Sheila Jordan (NEA Jazz Master)

“John Di Martino is one of my absolute personal favorite pianists of today. His music is an honest outpouring of light! “
– Benny Green (Jazz Pianist)

“John di Martino’s middle name should be ‘taste’, for he conveys that quality in both solo and supportive roles, in jazz as well as Latin music.”
– Ray Barretto (NEA Jazz Master)

“John DiMartino is a first-call veteran of the New York City jazz scene. This multi-recorded artist has long been a favorite of singers for his gigantic ears and intuitive, uncluttered playing—rare gifts that also enhance any instrumentalist he accompanies or arranges. DiMartino is a fine musician who sounds less interested in technical pyrotechnics than in mining a melody for its original intent—whether he’s arranging or playing, he lets the essence of a song speak for itself. “
