My View: It’s A Good Day ( And Night) With Stacy Sullivan

My View: It’s A Good Day ( And Night) With Stacy Sullivan

If Stacy Sullivan had existed in the golden era of  nightclubs in the 50’s and 60’s there probably would have been a bidding war for her vocal services by all those great rooms.  In looks, personality, and musicianship she’d be right up there competing for gigs with the singer that Stacy pays tribute to, Peggy Lee. The controlled, subdued confidence in her jazz vocals,combined with just the right touch of cool sexuality Stacy exudes always creates an enthralling cabaret experience.  She hits all the right notes, and I just love when a singer switches key without having to wait for the hint harmonics from the pianist. Needless to say the harmonic and technical brilliance of Jon Weber, her arranger and music director can lead a singer to great places, but Stacy is a great competitive force for Jon’s creative musical journeys.  At times last night they seemed like they were in separate worlds, but then miraculously their notes came together to create an exciting jazz/pop event.  Different colors, unexpected rhythms, and great acting are all components of “It’s A Good Day” and it happens every day Stacy Sullivan sings.
