Songs of love: Tamara Fouyer in concert at Off Broadstreet
Off Broadstreet is ready to present a very special evening with jazz vocalist Tamara Fouyer, who has appeared locally at various venues with Cabernet Duo and with jazz pianist Joe Hammel and his Big Band the Swingtime Jazz Combo.
Having recently presented a sold-out performance at the Miners Foundry, Fouyer is confident that Nevada County will crave another trip back in time to the classy Big Band era. She has chosen a repertoire of songs of love from the 1930s through the 1960s.
The haunting clarity of tone in her voice and an emotional connection to the lyrics suits the American Standard genre and delivers an authentic rendition of unforgettable tunes such as “Bye Bye Blackbird,” “Sentimental Journey” and “Tenderly.”
Fluent in the Romance languages, Fouyer will include songs with an international flair, including “Dream Little Dream (in French)”, “La Vie en Rose” and “Besame Mucho.” She also plans to include in her program a special guest crooner, Rick Tracewell, for some fun Sinatra duets. Tracewell is a self-described “old-style crooner with a rock & roll problem.”
Providing keyboard accompaniment for the evening is talented local jazz pianist Alan Feeney. If you love the music of “The Greatest Generation,” you won’t want to miss this very special evening with Tamara Fouyer.
Since seating is limited, it’s recommended to call early for reservations.
