Vail Square, Jazz Tent Headliner Series
“I’ve made a conscious decision throughout my life not to be confined, musically,” says Curtis Stigers. “For me, it’s all about the song, about the story.”—Curtis Stigers
For the award-winning singer, songwriter, and saxophonist, the story keeps getting better. His string of hit singles, millions of albums sold, and a 28-year recording career aside, Stigers’ commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook, has become unparalleled in modern music. Barnstorming concert halls, festivals, and clubs everywhere from Moscow to Manhattan accompanied one night by his quartet, another by big band or orchestra, Stigers continues to release new work nearly every year, frequently collaborating with his musical heroes. Along the way, this musician who began his career playing standards in a Boise hotel lobby while moonlighting as a drummer in a punk rock band has redefined the constitution of contemporary jazz singing.
Musicians: Curtis Stigers (vocals, tenor saxophone), Matthew Fries (piano), Cliff Schmitt (bass), Paul Wells (drums), John “Scrapper” Sneider (trumpet)
