Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The Triple Door presents the Seattle premiere of the revered and irreverent Sandra Bernhard’s latest show, _I Love Being Me, Don’t You? _ Bernhard is backed by four-piece band, for a no-holds-barred evening blending outrageous humor, cutting satire and fiercely energetic live performance. The production comes on the heels of the June release of her comedy album of the same title.
Since she first stepped on stage at the Comedy Store in the ‘70s, Sandra Bernhard has been challenging fans and critics with her outrageous humor, keen satire and rollicking stage shows. “Give the dame her due,” writes_ The New York Times_, “It’s invigorating to be in the presence of a true original.”
Bernhard, who writes and develops all of her own material, has produced numerous one-woman shows over the years, among them: Without You I’m Nothing (which was released as a feature film), Excuses for Bad Behavior, Giving ‘Til It Hurts, Hero Worship, The Love Machine, and _ Everything Bad and Beautiful,_ which ran for two months off-Broadway, before Bernhard toured with it, making numerous stops across the U.S. and in Europe.
Bernhard’s last show, Hero Worship, featured a five-piece band and was a post-September 11th tribute to Bernhard’s commitment to irony — that it, too, has survived September 11th. The show featured a range of musical numbers (some original and some covers). It was a fearless attempt to show that life must continue and the show must go on. Other notable performances include her participation in the Stormy Weather Benefit ’98,” organized by Don Henley, which also featured Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell, as well as “The Elton John Tribute for Broadway Cares.”
