Tyrone Clark featuring Lisa Henry in the Blue Room on Friday, March 23rd.
Classy. Earthy. Down Home. Fun. Lisa Henry is the essence of swingin’ cool, with A Voice That Does It All. Throughout her stellar career, Lisa has, and continues, to share the spotlight with many world renowned artists: Herbie Hancock, Anita Baker, Kenny Garrett, Clark Terry, Nnenna Freelon, Ted Curson, Rosemary Clooney, Kenny Barron, Roy Hargrove, Kevin Mahogany, Frank Mantooth, Norman Simmons, Ruben Alvarez, Tom “Bones” Malone, Lenny Pickett, Grady Tate, Terri Lyne Carrington, Jack McDuff, T.S. Monk, and Claude “Fiddler” Willliams to name a few. An engaging performer, Lisa’s charm and charisma, combined with her vocal abilities, make her a performing artist of the highest caliber.
In a musical career spanning nearly 40 years, Tyrone Clark, born in Chicago, has played professionally since he was eighteen. Although adept in a variety of musical genres, Clark’s concept and interpretation of playing is stylistically best described as rooted in the Kansas City jazz tradition. Described by a fellow musician, Clark is one of the few who impeccably delivers that style. He is a “full” bassist and always right there – “just when you need him.” His drive and sense of rhythm and melody impress audiences and musicians alike.
