Diane Witherspoon in Concert w/ The Billy Higgins Legacy Band
(Published: July 30, 2013)

Diane Witherspoon is arguably one of the best living female jazz vocalists in our time. She has had a long career performing in the U.S., but has spent her recent years performing mainly abroad. This concert is Ms. Witherspoon's real comeback to the Bay Area where she has a fan base who has missed her dearly.

West Coast jazz drummer Myron Cohen was with the late, great jazz drummer, Mr. Billy Higgins very closely for the last few years before his passing. Higgins requested that Myron work with Diane as much as he could after he passed - and Myron has several times. He created The Billy Higgins Legacy Band and has assembled a group of musicians that is more than befitting to accompany Ms. Witherspoon. They will be covering tunes from the re-issued CD, 'You May Never Know' featuring the music of Cedar Walton, as well as new material and fresh arrangements of familiar ones.

Musical Director and Pianist, Norman Landsberg (Pointer Sisters, Lenny Williams); Drummer, Myron Cohen ( Mike Bloomfield, Bobby Hutcherson, Roland Kirk, Charles Mingus, Tony Williams); Double Bassist, Carla Kaufman (Wesla Whitfield, Ed Reed, Denise Perrier, Kenny Washington & more); Reeds, Jesse Levit (James Moody, Wynton Marsalis, Khalil Shaheed, Frankye Kelly & more)
