Singer Pamela Rose, originator of the celebrated show Wild Women of Song, joins the superb Bay Area guitarist Terrence Brewer for an evening celebrating the partnership of the “First Lady of Song” and guitar virtuoso Joe Pass, and specifically their 1973 Pablo Records duo classic Take Love Easy.

“An ebullient, charismatic performer who effortlessly holds the spotlight” (San Francisco Chronicle), Rose is equally known as a superlative jazz singer and blues belter whose Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era shined a much-deserved light on the contributions of women songwriters to the Great American Songbook. Her most recent project, Blues is a Woman, is a multimedia showcase for the great women of the blues that features Rose and a stellar all-woman band made up of many of the Bay Area’s best including pianist Tammy Hall and saxophonist Kristen Strom.

Described by JazzTimes as “A melodic improviser with an exquisite tone and an abundance of soul,” Bay Area guitarist and composer Terrence Brewer cut his teeth in the San Francisco jazz scene, studying with Charlie Hunter and Mark Levine before rocketing to national attention with his 2006 debut release, The Calling: Vol. One. He has shared the stage with artists including Diana Krall, Mary Wilson, Gerald Albright and the Doobie Brothers’ Michael McDonald, and released over a half-dozen albums on his own Strong Brew label. Together, Rose and Brewer capture the magical chemistry of Fitzgerald and Pass with entrancing takes on songs including “Lush Life,” “You Go To My Head,” and “ the Duke Ellington-penned title track “Take Love Easy.”

A naturally gifted player with a beautiful, warm tone and a melodic penchant, his playing is eminently pleasing.
