Kim Nalley has an exceptional talent in any performance, but last night she was especially brilliant. Although, the show was a half hour late (due to sold out house and getting everyone seated), she took control and for nearly two hours had the audience amazed, amused and amiable to Kim singing, chatting and then introducing four great guests, including Denise Perrier, Wil Balke (fantastic at the Hammond organ), a 85 year old singer and one of her young students. The show survives because of the incredible talent of Tammy Hall and fine musicians. Ms. Hall does magic with the organ and piano - a real local talent! Ms. Hall gave a lovely gift to all attending, making the evening a real Christmas treat!

We have loved Kim Nalley before but she spent a huge amount of time talking then had her friends from the audience come and sing. The man who was supposed to be a "jazz legend" was awful. Anyway it was a poor show overall and a big disappointment
Quotes & Highlights
“Nalley is a triple threat — a powerful blues singer, a song stylist who can put her stamp on American songbook standards and an assertively lascivious vaudevillian with an entire book of bawdy songs brimming with double entendres. Kim Nalley has pipes to burn and works the stage like she means it.” —San Francisco Chronicle
Kim Nalley is one of the most international acclaimed soul jazz and blues singers to emerge from San Francisco. Twice awarded as San Francisco’s Best Jazz Singer, she also has numerous acting credits including Madame Zinzanni in Teatro Zinzanni. Her CDs have been shortlisted for a Grammy and have charted in the Jazz Top 20.
Pianist, organist, composer, and arranger Tammy Lynne Hall is one of the most in-demand musicians in the Bay Area. Born in Dallas, she studied classical and competed in classical competitions and was the organist and pianist at church, while unbeknownst to her grandmother, she was sneaking out to listen to the devil’s music, jazz. The result was Tammy Hall’s core sound: a fusion of jazz, gospel and classical.
