Tammy Hall Trio

Dec 10
Joe Henderson Lab

An accomplished solo artist and bandleader, Bay Area-based pianist, organist, and composer Tammy Hall performs a fresh program titled Lush Life: Music for Falling In/Out of Love accompanied by her rock-solid trio including bassist Gary Brown and drummer Deszon Claiborne.

A native of Dallas, Hall began her life with the piano at age four, honing her skills in the church and later in studies at Oakland’s Mills College before setting out on a professional career that would find her warm and intuitive mix of jazz, classical, and gospel approaches in great demand. An intensive period of club performances and band building while living in Belgium for two years helped prepare Hall for her life as a collaborator and leader, and upon her return, she built a career in collaboration with a roster of major artists including Mary Wilson, Kim Nalley, Marcus Shelby, Houston Person, David “Fathead” Newman, Pamela Rose, Queen Esther Marrow, Ernestine Anderson, and Regina Carter, among dozens of others. She was a featured guest on NPR’s Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland, and is a dedicated educator, working extensively with SFJAZZ’s education department as well as the SFUSD, Stanford Jazz Workshop, the Musically Minded Academy, and more. She has led or co-led a number of albums under her name including her latest, Blue Soul.
