Snap on 2&4 w/ Dara Tucker - 2015

We're excited to welcome back to the Jazz Cave vocalist Dara Tucker. Dara's last two Snap on 2&4 appearances were sold-out affairs, and we don't expect this one to be any different.

Dara Tucker is a versatile and creative vocalist and composer based in Nashville. She has performed nationally at the famous Blue Note, Snug Harbor, the San Jose Jazz Festival, and Sculler’s. Dara’s style is heavily influenced by the sounds of gospel, American folk, and jazz music.

For her Friday, Feb. 13, 8pm performance, Dara will be joined by Greg Bryant (bass), Nioshi Jackson (drums), Joe Davidian (piano), and James Westfall (vibraphone).

Dara's latest CD, The Sun Season, was released in 2014. It features original material and a roster of top New York players including pianist Helen Sung, drummer Donald Edwards, guitarist Peter Bernstein, and horn players John Ellis and Alan Ferber. On his popular blog, Jazzwax, Wall Street Journal Music Critic Marc Myers said of The Sun Season,

"I can't remember the last time I heard a new vocalist who impressed me so completely as Tucker. She has a beautiful, soulful voice, and her original songs are honest and innocent personal expressions backed by languid arrangements and skilled playing."

See below for a preview video of the project.

There will be two sets beginning at 8:00 pm in the Jazz Cave at the Workshop. Tickets will go on sale Monday, February 2 at 10am, and are $20 ($10 for high school and college students). Advance purchase is strongly recommended. Tickets will be available online right here, by phone at 800-838-3006 24/7 or 615-242-5299 during business hours.
