Summer JazzFest – Amani: Nat King Cole at 100!
The versatile instrumentalists of Amani will recreate the sound of Nat King Cole, among the most famous entertainers in the 1950’s and 60’s. The members of Amani are veteran musicians Stephen Fuller – Featured Vocalist, Fred Fischer on piano and vocals, Flip Peters on guitar and vocals, Marty Eigen on Tenor Sax, Alex Grissel on bass, and Vern Mobley on Drums.
Nat King Cole recorded over one hundred songs that became hits on the pop charts. He recorded songs in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and at least one non-Romance language – Japanese! The history behind these recordings is a testament to Nat King Cole’s ability to break down barriers. “I may be helping to bring harmony between people through my music,” said Nat King Cole.
Amani means “peace” in Swahili. The group was formed to share the concept of peace through music, performing for people of all ages, races, and religious affiliations. Amani presents music from a wide variety genres including: The American Songbook, Blues, Jazz and Bossa Nova. Their extensive repertoire is tailored into a program that will be a joy for all who are lucky enough to experience it.
