Daryl Sherman and Harry Allen

 8pm $20 advance, $22 door

Singer-pianist Daryl Sherman and tenor saxophonist Harry Allen team up for a special reunion

With JON WHEATLEY, guitar MARSHALL WOOD, bass and special guest JEAN MCKENNA O'DONNELL


Rhode Island roots run deep for these two prominent jazz performers who have distinguished themselves with stellar careers in New York and internationally. Daryl grew up in Woonsocket under the tutelage of her trombonist/band leader dad, Sammy Sherman, who years ago inaugurated live jazz at Chan's. Harry,already heralded as a bright talented young teen from neighboring Burrillville (nurtured by his jazz drummer dad, Maurice Allen) would be invited to sit in and soon hired to play all over. In the 90s, after long establishing herself as a Manhattan mainstay, Daryl started her Chan's homecoming concerts featuring her dad along with all -star musicians (including "grown up" Harry Allen) which have become eagerly awaited annual events.

Proclaimed the "Frank Sinatra of the saxophone" Harry Allen's beautifully centered tone, creative improvising, innate sense of swing - combined with his deep knowledge of jazz and American Songbook classics have made him one of the most versatile in demand players on the scene. In addition to his own groups, he's become a well matched addition to the brilliant Brazilian jazz group Trio da Paz and appears with Scott Hamilton,Warren Vache, Rebecca Kilgore, Judy Carmichael, Bucky,and John Pizzarelli.

Daryl Sherman's recent highlight in The New Yorker: aptly states "no veteran singer (and gently swinging pianist) inhabits the full range of the American popular -song repertoire quite like the irreplaceable Sherman and precious few possess her abundant versatility, style and charm ". Hot House Jazz magazine voted her "best female vocalist 2015". The past four years Daryl has charmed Japanese fans in Tokyo and Osaka, Hiroshima with live performances and master classes. She annually tours in UK and Holland, where she teaches a special enclave of singers in Delft. Also a presence in New Orleans, Daryl has often appeared at the annual Satchmo Summerfest and just recorded a new CD at the historic Jazzology Foundation studio in the French Quarter.

Esteemed recording artists, both Daryl Sherman and Harry Allen have multiple award winning CDs that are played in regular rotation on Sirius, Pandora, Alexa, Cable TV Music Choice and countless other radio stations. Daryl's CD "Guess Who's In Town" (The New Yorker "Top 10" list) features Harry's distinctive tenor sax stylings. Another fine contributor to this CD and appearing with them at Chan's is popular Boston ace guitarist Jon Wheatley.

To round out the rhythm section for this special reunion is bassist Marshall Wood, taking a rare night off from the ever constant, touring Tony Bennett. Marshall was a frequent swinging presence on Daryl's annual Chan's events with her dad, warmly captured on Sammy Sherman's Arbors CD, "Live At Chan's".

Last but not least, another annual favorite, Jean McKenna O'Donnell, will add her sparkling vocals to the mix. Her brother, world class jazz pianist Dave McKenna, was a special mentor for both Harry and Daryl. They've each performed and recorded with him and agree he's THE BEST.
