Sarah Clay: Lyrical, Soulful, Playful Jazz Vocals & Flute

 “Vocalist Sarah Clay is a musician of considerable experience, with a penchant for creating interesting phrases with material that could become clichéd in less capable hands.” (Rich Mayer, music reviewer)

I love it when my band swings with richly-voiced, lush chords. It's a special sound that is unmistakably jazz: smooth, lively, mellow, fun. Clay Jazz [and Feats of Clay Jazz] performs throughout New England at restaurants, parties, business events, weddings . . . what about your next event?

Jazz is America's indigenous classical music and I am proud to continue the tradition. My style of jazz tends to be more melodic, lyrical, and playful (not the head-banging' stuff!)  A typical set will include Swing, Latin, Bossa Nova, Ballads, Spanish love songs, Blues, and standards from the American Songbook. Some of my favorite composers are Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and many others from the 1930s to the present.
