Summer Jazz Series: Sally Terrell & FriendsJune 23, 2017
Sally Terrell began a lifelong love affair with piano and singing at age six, poking out melodies alongside her father, a classically trained pianist and jazz aficionado who passed along his love of George Gershwin, Errol Garner and Julie London while discovering his youngest daughter could play and sing by ear.
Terrell put aside her musical ambitions for two decades while building a career as a college writing teacher. She began her professional career at 45 when she and partner John Sarlo formed the Green Jazz Band. Terrell's intuitive interpretations and razor-sharp ear showcase a velvety alto that can effortlessly soothe and soar.
