Mark your calendars for the night of October 14th as Beth Duncan and her exceptional sextet are poised to grace the stage of the Nevada Theatre presented by the Sierra Jazz Society and Paul Emery Presents. Sharing the limelight alongside Beth are her longtime musical compadres pianist Joe Gilman, guitarist Steve Homan and reed player Mike McMullen. Rounding out this stellar ensemble are bassist Alex Reiff and drummer Jeff Minnieweather.

This will be a evening of great jazz standards including the music of Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Gershwin. Sprinkled within the classics will be originals from gifted composers Martine Tabilio and Bill Cantos, adding a touch of novelty to an evening steeped in tradition.

Duncan applies her warm, robust contralto voice to a collection of finely crafted tunes on her long-awaited third album, I’m All Yours. Duncan’s first recording, Orange Colored Sky, established Beth as one of Northern California’s leading jazz vocalists. Her 2012 follow-up Comes the Fall debuted on national radio at #26 right below Diana Krall, brought her international recognition and won an Independent Music Award. More than her beautiful voice, Beth’s vocal interpretations maintain a strong undercurrent of love for life and the joyful celebration of her art.
