About the event
Rhode Island born Daryl Sherman has been a part of the New York City jazz scene since the mid-70s and she is one of the rare singing pianists equally talented in both roles. Sherman is a unique stylist with charm, quick wit , chemistry with her audiences and ability to make herself at home in any musical setting.
From her early stints at Sinatra hang-outs like Jilly’s, there’s hardly a jazz joint, supper club or hotel Daryl has missed. When Artie Shaw formed a new band after his retirement, Sherman was his chosen singer, calling her “a first rate singer –musician”. Her CDs are in regular rotation on Cable TV’s Music Choice, Sirius/XM Radio,BBC, JazzRadio Berlin and she’s been a frequent guest on Marian McPartland’s NPR Piano Jazz.Event Details
