January 12, 2024 @ 7:30 pm
“Tamir Hendelman’s remarkable keyboard skills are matched by his immense versatility. “
– The Arts Fuse
“A serious jazz artist who takes the whole enterprise to another level.”
– The New York Times
“This is truly one of my very favorite projects.
No pianist in the world swings harder than Tamir
and he’s an encyclopedia of songs so I’m able to
be so free and improvisational. This project is a joy.”
~ Tierney Sutton
KCH is thrilled to welcome internationally celebrated jazz musicians Tierney Sutton (vocals) and Tamir Hendelman (piano)! The Sutton/Hendelman musical duo relationship goes back more than 20 years. In that time, Sutton has earned 9 Grammy nominations for her 14 albums as a leader, and Hendelman has been arranging, recording, and performing with a host of Luminaries including Barbra Streisand and Natalie Cole, leading his own trio, and being the featured pianist of the Jeff Hamilton Trio as well as the Grammy-Winning Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. Still, Tierney and Tamir found time to tour as a duo in Italy, Japan, China and throughout the U.S.
With all of that, it was the pandemic that cemented and deepened the partnership of these two Los Angeles-based artists. Throughout 2020 and 2021, Tierney and Tamir created and presented live-streamed themed shows and “By Request” video dedications for fans around the world.
Don’t miss this swinging and intimate musical journey with the Sutton/Hendelmen duo, as they celebrate the Great American Songbook through one of its quintessential lyricists, Johnny Mercer, taking us through the seasons of the year and indeed, the many seasons of our lives.
This event is generously sponsored by Jesse Kramer, in memory of Barbara Kramer.
