It was great to catch a live jazz show at a great low price. I love attending Sculler's but with this economy I have not been able to catch that many shows this past... continued

Description

Gabrielle Goodman is a phenomenal vocal artist, composer, and educator who has performed and toured with Chaka Khan, Roberta Flack, Patti Labelle, Patrice Rushen and George Duke. She returns to Scullers for a post inaugural celebration featuring cuts from her upcoming release “Ordinary Beautiful Flower.” This recording is the long awaited follow up to her 2004 release “Angel Eyes” that showcased her mellow blend of Jazz and R&B and featured the silky, smooth sounds of saxophonists Walter Beasley and Andre Ward, and singer/songwriter Armsted Christian.

Her discography includes 2002’s, “Until We Love” which appeared on the JMT/Verve label, and garnered critical acclaim. The sizzling tracks featured a line-up that included Christian McBride, Gary Bartz, Terri Lyne Carrington, Marvin Smitty Smith, and many other Jazz greats. Goodman enjoyed initial success with her debut CD, “Travelin’ Light” where she shared the spotlight with Tonight Show bandleader and guitarist, Kevin Eubanks and saxophonist Gary Thomas. Gabrielle has not only toured and recorded internationally with her own ensemble; she has performed throughout the world – providing backing vocals for such legendary artists as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Freddie Jackson, Patti Labelle, Brian Ferry, and many others. She has shared the stage with such luminaries as Quincy Jones, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Terrance Blanchard, Marcus Miller, Norman Connors, and Marion Meadows, to name just a few.

As an Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music, and graduate of the Peabody Conservatory, Goodman is not only well versed in Jazz and popular music, but is also classically trained. She was a featured guest artist with The Boston Pops for the debut of Conductor Charles Floyd’s Gospel oratorio, Hosana. Gabrielle has also performed with the Syracuse Symphony, The Akron Symphony, The Baltimore Symphony, and the Tokyo-based Yamayuri Symphony Orchestra.

In the R&B genre, Goodman’s powerful solo vocals can be heard on the Norman Connors “Passion” CD (singing an amazing rendition of Minnie Riperton’s “Loving You”) and on Lonnie Linston Smith’s “Magic Lady” CD, where she is a featured vocalist on several songs. As a writer, she co-penned the smash hit “You Can Make the Story Right” for Chaka Khan, which appeared on the Grammy-award-winning CD, “The Woman I Am.” But her writing credits don’t stop there. She wrote the title track for “Until We Love” among several other songs on her Verve-released solo CDs. Her writing is also featured on the Hip-Hop prelude to Roberta Flack’s recording of “A Prelude to a Kiss.”

Her big break came when she went on tour with Roberta Flack. “I’ll never forget her solo on “My Funny Valentine” which she performed at the Newport Jazz Festival,” said Flack. “We were the last to go on that stormy day where a drenched crowd of 15,000 waited on a muddied field in the driving rain. Gabrielle’s solos came upon them like a clap of lightning. They stood, screamed, clapped, stomped, and whistled for her. They gave her a standing ovation!” Flack exclaimed. “She is one of the best singers around today.”
