LET YOUR SWING FRIENDS KNOW YOU'LL BE THERE!



BARBARA MORRISON
WITH BOBBY BARRON AND HIS SWING THING BAND

Originally from Detroit, Barbara Morrison's twenty-year career as a performer and recording artist includes appearances worldwide with some of the greatest names in jazz: Ray Brown, Kenny Burrell, Ron Carter, Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Collette, Joe Williams, Gerald Wiggins, Jimmy Witherspoon, Hank Crawford, Eddie Harris, Nancy Wilson, David T. Walker and Jimmy Smith. She has performed in such highly regarded venues as Carnegie Hall, the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Bern Jazz Festival and the Playboy Jazz Festival. Morrison also toured Europe with Ray Charles. Morrison seems equally at home in a broad range of idioms, from pop to R&B to the blues, but the blues is unquestionably her forte. Morrison has been compared to some of the greatest female jazz and blues singers. Her singing has been described as "soul stirring, sizzling," her style, "graceful," her pacing, "flawless." The New York Times stated, "A joy, at Carnegie Hall, Barbara Morrison delivered one song a la Esther Phillips and another with Ella Fitzgerald's blithe scat singing."

THE BEST LIVE SWING DANCE MUSIC
At Rusty's, each week we strive to present the best of swing dance music for your dancing pleasure. In realizing that dancers have varying taste in their swing music, we present a wide range of music styles from over the decades: vintage swing, Big Bands, small groups, Rockabilly, Rock 'n' Roll, Doo Wop, Neo Swing, West Coast Swing, and just everything in between. Really anything from the 1920s to the present that will get your feet dancing, that's what we bring in!

FRIDAY GUEST TEACHER CLASSES

for an intermediate and up class.
$5 for this class.
