It’s finally warm in Chicago! The temperature reached 58 degrees earlier in the day and everyone is out to celebrate on this beautiful Friday evening. Andy’s Jazz Club & Restaurant is packed to see Sarah Marie Young. She mixes originals with jazz standards such as “Marvin Gaye’s “You’re All I Need To Get By”. Her vocals shine as she sings “My Cherie Amour” by Stevie Wonder. Sarah is backed by a full band of drums, bass, sax, and Stuart Mindeman on piano. Stu collaborated with Sarah on her latest album, Too Many Februaries. Sarah and Stu play a few tracks together which showcase their combined talent. Their energy and enthusiasm pair perfectly for an incredible performance.
When the band returns, Sarah sets up the next song saying it’s one of her favorites and you can see and feel the excitement of her band. They launch into a fantastic version of Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life”. The song builds to an outstanding vocal and musical climax. Sarah is from Indianapolis, but after living in Chicago for 10 years, she considers Chicago home. Chicago is very fortunate to have added Sarah to the local jazz scene. Catch her soon at one of her many upcoming dates in Chicago!
