Al Downing Tampa Bay Jazz Association is thrilled to start 2018 with a special evening of jazz. For the first time working together, Whitney James & Synia Carroll will sing original duet arrangements of their favorite jazz standards such as ‘You Don’t Know What Love Is’, ‘Comes Love’, ‘Happy Days Are Here Again’ and many more. While the concert will have a nice collection of duets, each artist will have solo performances with St. Pete’s favorite rhythm section of La Lucha, with Alejandro Arenas, bass; John O’Leary, piano; Mark Feinman, drums; and the talented James Suggs on trumpet. Their diverse influences and styles are a wonderful complement to each other and will make for an exciting collaboration.
