FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Preservation of Jazz, Out of the Mouth of Jazz Music Series ( Hug Detroit Community Service Coat & Blanket Drive) continues with homage to a singer/songwriter, actress, activist that surprisingly goes under the radar except for hard core jazz aficionados, but no longer. Known for her poetic, straight-forward compositions, Abbey Lincoln (born Gaby Wooldridge) gave the world six decades of incredible jazz music and Unlimited Sky Productions is extremely delighted to present the debut of Sky Covington’s Tribute to Abbey Lincoln at Baker’s Keyboard Lounge ( Hug Detroit Community Service Coat & Blanket Drive) on December 16th for two shows at 8p and 10p.
Abbey was raised in rural Michigan but eventually gravitated to New York City where she created and lived her best jazz life. Covington will take you from early songs such as “Afro-Blue” off her first album in 1954, to “Throw It Away” written in 1995 and into the new century with “Windmills of Your Mind” (2000) to list just a few treats on the menu. Each melody is a journey in and of itself laced with poignant vocals and mesmerizing sax solos as Ms. Lincoln collaborated for many years with saxophonist David Sanborn. Be one of the first to experience this incredible performance. https://www.skycovington.net/bio
