2/26/2013 6:48:00 AM Join Rosemary Chavez and Jazz a'la mode at Desert Flour Bakery
This Thursday night, February 28th, from 6 to 8:30, the Desert Flour Bakery in the Village of Oak Creek ("The DFB in the VOC") is the place to be where Rosemary Chavez and Jazz a'la mode will be on hand for a musical feast!
Singer Rosemary Chavez and drummer Frankie Chavez have become well known in the Sedona music scene with their groups Jazz a'la mode and PLATINUM and joining Rosemary and Frankie will be the talented, tasty keyboard renderings of David Vincent Mills and the ever-so-smooth sweet saxophone sounds of Haizen Page.
These accomplished musicians all hail from Los Angeles have been pleasing audiences for years. Since moving to Sedona, they have played for special events such as the Sedona International Film Festival and Sedona Marathon to favorite local spots such as REDS at the Sedona Rouge, Tlaquepaque and the Desert Flour Bakery. It's about having fun while enjoying jazz, standards and wonderful musical surprises (including songs from the 60's to the 80's) and that is what their fans have come to expect at the Desert Flour Bakery.
Rosemary's captivating vocals have been delighting audiences for years. A recent article stated "Whenever she is performing, Rosemary likes to have a relationship with each person in her audience. She makes you feel special as you listen to her warm, rich, supple voice and watch this lovely, joyful, commanding singer. She lets the music flow through every fiber of her being and it infuses her with an energy that is utterly infectious, be it happy, wistful, seductive or sad. Whether she is singing swing, jazzy bossa nova, dreamy ballads, a taunting bolero, soft rock 'n' roll or soulful R&B, Rosemary does it all with sassy spirit, tender heart and consummate musicianship."
As drummer for the Los Angeles based Glenn Miller Orchestra, Frankie's most recent venture was an incredible seven week tour of Australia. Prior to that, their tour took them to The Far East, where they played for the Royal Family at the 2012 Thailand Jazz Festival. Frankie's no stranger to working with notable artists such as Lionel Hampton, Woody Herman, Pat Boone, Mitzi Gaynor, Bobby Gentry, Vikki Carr and the list goes on. While living in Los Angeles, both Frankie and Haizen Page worked with Stan Kenton as well.
Frankie and Rosemary have been featured artists at the Prescott Jazz Summit for the past several years and their CD "Sweet Jazz a'la mode" is available online at CD Baby or at live performances. For more information go to: www.chavez-music.com.
