Vocalist Suzanna Smith and her band celebrate the work of Helen Merrill, giving special focus to Merrill’s debut classic ‘Helen Merrill with Clifford Brown.’ Arranged and produced by Quincy Jones and released in 1955, the album features a fine collaboration between Merrill and Brown. The album had a direct influence on Smith’s early repertoire, as did Merrill’s warmth of timbre, acute sense of phrasing and soulful quality on Smith’s vocal style. For this concert, Suzanna Smith and her band will perform compositions from this recording as well as representative samples from the wide spectrum of Merrill’s discography.
