Vocalist Doris Long is a Cleveland treasure. Her straight-ahead style honors the American Songbook tradition, as she infuses the lyrics with a passion that rings of sincerity and truth. Long, known as Doris by her fans, has performed with the top musicians on Cleveland’s jazz scene, including renowned pianist “Ace” Carter after he retired from the Count Basie Orchestra. Carter liked to say that he came out of retirement after hearing Doris sing.
For 13 years, The Doris Long Jazz Ensemble’s Friday night gigs featured Joe Hunter on piano and Dallas Coffey on bass, which lead to a collaboration on CD called Long Overdue in 2012. Hunter and Coffey have played in support of legendary acts like David Sanborn, David “Fathead” Newman, Scott Hamilton and more. Hunter was a longtime faculty member of the Tri-C Jazz Studies program. You can catch him around town swingin’ with Red Light Roxy. Coffey is a versatile musician who enjoys performing in multiple genres including soul, latin and bluegrass. Coffey and Hunter produced two CDs together named East of the Sun and From This Moment On. Tonight, they join Doris in a special concert to celebrate their years of making music together, playing the tunes of the American Songbook.Back to Calendar
