Musical Virtuoso Award
A talented and versatile bassist known for his impeccable timing, dynamic rhythms and improvisational dexterity.
The beautiful and sultry jazz songstress is this year's Legacy Winner and it is also her farewell peformance. The extremely talented Marlena Shaw is universally admired for her warm, supple voice and relaxed charm; a natural storyteller, her spoken words before, during, and between songs is often hilarious. Marlena’s smiling; spontaneous interplay with both her band and her audience invites the listener in like a valued friend.
