From Basie to Bossa - The “Sassy” Sarah (Vaughan) Songbook

Versatile and vivacious American jazz vocalist Kristine Mills presents From Basie to Bossa, The Sassy Sarah Vaughan Songbook. This award-winning performer is joined on stage with an exceptional Trio lead by pianist Janette Mason, with bassist Simon Little and drummer TBA.

Expect a journey through the prolific career of “Sassy” Sarah Vaughan beginning with hits from her early solo career in the 1940’s, through songs of her mid-century recordings from the Great American Songbook, then culminating with tunes discovered for her love of Brazilian music from the 60’s to the 80’s.

“So Ms. Mills’ vocal ability is more than ‘a way with a lyric,’ it’s an immersion into material that she owns, not something someone else built. This is her intimate familiarity with lyrics that become almost instantly familiar inside your head. This isn’t mouthing words...This is considerable vocal talent.” - girlsingers.org

Winner of the Houston Press Music Awards, Best Female Vocalist and Best Songwriter, Mills was among the 2013 Houston Press Rocks off 100 - Houston’s Most Distinguished Artists and a 2012 Houston Arts Alliance for Established Individual Artists Grant Recipient.
