Carol Leslie's “blue-eyed soul,” is evident in her ballads when that low register grabs the heartstrings. Her years providing cabaret performances truly show when she puts her audience at their ease, and helps transport them to a place far away from worry and stress. Her liaisons with top shelf musicians in NE Ohio have paid off given the incredible line-up she has put together for this show. Her CD, “Carol Leslie, Live At The Bop Stop!” is available via www.cdbaby.com.
On keys is Rock Wehrmann, pianist in demand across the Midwest, Professor Emeritus of the University of Akron, a mentor to many, with an incredible repertoire of compositions and songs from just about every genre of music. Rock is often found as a key player with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, and the Cleveland Pops.
On bass is Jeff Slater, also an educator, mentor, graduate in music theory, and often seen working with Eric Everett Jazz combos, or performing Vince Guaraldii compositions with another amazing musician, Cliff Habian. His Brazilian music studies certainly help when Carol has Jobim on the setlist!
On drums is Jim Alexander, who recently returned to Cleveland from working in NYC for many years gigging with the national recording artists! We are so fortunate he chose to return, and he is quickly re-establishing himself in the NE Ohio scene. He has worked with top recording artists, is also an educator, and is a consummate professional!
On guitar is someone whose skills are making him one of the go-to guitarists in the area, Joseph Rangel. Another degreed professional, his craft becomes clear within the first few bars of music. He is an educator, a mentor, and is often found accompanying vocalists, eg Maria DiDonato, Dane Vannatter, given his exquisite ‘ear’ and ability to play across genres.Back to Calendar
