THE GREAT MS BARBARA MORRISON, FEATURED VOCALIST

Morrison is known for a melodic voice and a three-and-a-half-octave range. She interprets a familiar jazz and blues classics repertoire in a unique style, and also sings original contemporary tunes. One example of her original music is "I Wanna Be Loved", co-written with Michael Cormier, which is a musical theatre production about the life and times of Dinah Washington, Queen of the Blues.

Over the years she has performed with many renowned jazz and blues musicians, including legends such as Gerald Wilson, Dizzy Gillespie, and Ray Charles. Morrison has also guest-starred with the Count Basie Orchestra, the Clayton-Hamilton Orchestra and Doc Severinsen's Big Band. Morrison also performs many well-known blues and jazz festivals around the world.

HENRY "The Skipper" FRANKLIN has performed with many headline artists including Al Jarreau, Stevie Wonder, Count Basie, Freddie Hubbard and Milt Jackson and was part of the legendary Hugh Masekelas band during the late 1960s.

There are more than 100 albums on which Henry appears, with many of them produced under his leadership. They include: The Skipper and The Skipper at Home (Black Jazz label), Three Card Molly, Bassic Instincts, The Hunter, Bass Encounters (Resurgent Music label), Colemanology, Ears Wide Open, Three Worlds, A Musical Tribute to Gene Harris featuring Three More Sounds, Summer Serenade (Beezwax Records), Shalabongo, We Came to Play (Jeru Records), Tribal Dance (Catalyst Records), Blue Lights (Ovation Records), Sakura (WJ3 Records), All God's Children (SP Records), Music to the 5th Power (SP Records), 3Bop (SP Records), If We Should Meet Again (SP Records), O, What a Beautiful Morning! (SP Records), Soul of the World (SP Records), June Night (SP Records) and High Voltage (SP Records). Henry also published a method book for all bass players entitled, Bassically Yours.

AL WILLIAMS drummer, entrepreneur and promoter of jazz, has a well-earned reputation as a musical mover and shaker.Whether it be bebop, blues, funk, straight ahead, or Latin, he creates rhythmic artistry and power which support the melody line and command listener involvement.

His recording and/or touring experience includes work with jazz greats, Hampton Hawes (Something Special), Leroy Vinnegar (The Kid), Teddy Edwards, Willie Bobo, Kenny Burrell, Eddie Harris, Freddie Hubbard, Sarah Vaughn, and Roy Ayers.  On a more bluesy note, he has kept time for Jimmy Witherspoon and Lowell Folsom.
