The 14th Annual Provincetown Jazz Festival will be on Thursday, August 9, at 7 PM at The Crown & Anchor in Provincetown and on Monday, August 13, at 7:30 PM at Cotuit Center for the Arts.
The festival features the Tim Ray Trio and Daryl Sherman in Cotuit.
Pianist Tim Ray is best known as the longtime pianist for Lyle Lovett and has appeared on more than 75 recordings, including his just-released CD, “Windows,” which was hailed as “an exuberant immersion into a set of classic jazz composition, played with a zestful grace by the Tim Ray Trio” by All About Jazz.
Other members of the trio are John Lockwood on bass and, making his festival debut, Mark Walker on drums. All three are on the faculty of the Berklee College of Music.
Singer and pianist Daryl Sherman will open the show. Born in Rhode Island, Ms. Sherman has been part of the New York City jazz scene since the mid-1970s. In addition to jazz clubs and her renowned 14-year run at the Waldorf-Astoria, where she played Cole Porter’s Steinway, Ms. Sherman has performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Artie Shaw's '80s band with Dick Johnson, and guested often on "Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz" on National Public Radio.
She regularly tours the UK and has been giving concerts and master classes in Japan, Berlin and Holland. She has performed and recorded with Dave McKenna, Bucky & John Pizzarelli, Ruby Braff, Ken Peplowski, Howard Alden, and with her dad, trombonist/bandleader Sammy Sherman, and many more.
Ms. Sherman will be accompanied by Cape Cod jazz musicians Bruce Abbott on sax, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.
