Douyé Trio: A Night of Jazz
July 30 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $15 - $20
Los Angeles-based singer Douyé brings her trio to the Poppy to celebrate her first album of jazz standards, Daddy Said So. After two well-received R&B releases, the Nigerian-born vocalist goes back to her roots with an evening of classics inspired by legends such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Dinah Washington.
Her upbeat R&B track “Life Is Good” made it to #9 on the UK soul chart, but Douyé, born in Lagos, Nigeria, is right at home as a jazz singer. Daddy Said So is packed with heavyweights, including bassist Ron Carter (“Nature Boy”), pianist Kenny Barron (“Mood Indigo” and “I Loves You Porgy”), guitarist Russell Malone (“Body And Soul”), as well as pianist-arranger John Beasley, saxophonist Bob Sheppard, bassist John Clayton, and drummer Roy McCurdy (“Round Midnight” and “In A Sentimental Mood”).
Time: Doors 7:00PM / Show 7:30PM
