|Shoop Ta Sho|
|You're My Falling Star|
Vocal and instrumental jazz trio featuring classic American Songbook standards and Brazilian music. We occasionally add Texas songwriters like Walter Hyatt and Cindy Walker to the mix, blues and pop depending on the show. We focus on the popular standards of the 30s, 40s and 50s covering songwriters such as Jerome Kern, Rodgers and Hart, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim, Jimmy Van Heusen and the Gershwin Brothers.
Chris Jones, upright bass
Monte Mann, Bart Madeley lead guitar
Paula Held, vocals, rhythm guitar
"Paula adds new ideas to the jazz-related work of now famous female artists like Norah Jones, Diana Krall and Madeleine Peyroux. Her voice is flexible and sultry, and the accompaniment is excellent." - Fred Schmale, Real Roots Cafe
