Kimberly Ford is an internationally recognized jazz vocalist whose resumé includes performances at The Coleman Hawkins Jazz Festival and The Santa Barbara Jazz Festival, and whose voice has been featured in numerous films and television shows. Her exceptional voice and uncanny grasp of styles ranging from jazz to bluegrass have also made her a highly sought-after clinician at colleges and jazz programs across the country.
With the formation of The Kimberly Ford Band, she has assembled a stellar group of musicians, who themselves have backed some of the biggest names in music. Their varied background and innate grasp of stylistic nuance have given birth to this unique blend, that floats seamlessly from jazz to rock, to bluegrass and beyond.
After studying at Julliard, George Friedenthal ventured into jazz, blues, and R&B en route to becoming a stylistic chameleon. He has performed all over the world with Kenny Loggins, Alan Parsons, Bonnie Bramlett, Clark Terry and Gerald Wilson, to name a few.
Randy Tico is a virtuoso bassist who has been a fixture of the jazz scene for many years. An in-demand player both on stage and in the studio, he has performed with Flora Purim, Les McCaan, Jeffery Osborne, Bert Jansch, Brian Wilson, Jeff Bridges, and many more.
A gifted guitarist and violinist with no stylistic boundaries, Lee Rollag honed his chops alongside the late Danny Gatton in country superstar Roger Miller’s band, before moving on to perform with Willie Nelson, Joe Cocker, Glen Campbell, and many others.
This concert will take place on Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 pm at the Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 820 N. Fairview in Goleta. Admission is $15 and people under 16 are free. Tickets are available in advance by mail (see the web site www.SongTree.org for information), and at Folk Mote Music, and Jensen Guitar and Music in Santa Barbara. Tickets will also be sold at the door if not sold out in advance.
