Mary Stallings, a consummate vocalist and performer, returns to SMOKE backed by the unbeatable trio of pianist Emmet Cohen, bassist Peter Washington, and drummer Joe Farnsworth. The New York Times describes Stallings as “polished, self-possessed and close to the ground, with blues and gospel language on simmer. And she’s a wizard of the long tone, which she uses to laser into deep emotional zones; she leaves brackets of silence, and phrases with microscopic care.” And, The Wall Street Journal adds that she is “our greatest living link to the late, great (Carmen) McRae.”

“One of the most accomplished jazz singers of her generation.” – Downbeat

Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards.
