SB Jazz at SOhO
updated: Jan 13, 2014, 3:36 PM

By Mark McDonald

On Sunday the Santa Barbara Jazz Society hosted illustrious jazz/blues vocalist, Barbara Morrison at SOhO Music Club, backed by the current Jazz Society president, Ian Bernard on piano, Richard Simon - bass, and Paul Kriebich on drums. Ms. Morrison sang a tribute presentation to Dinah Washington with What a Difference a Day Makes, Teach Me Tonight, and I Wanna Be Loved.

She gave a unique interpretation of the Percy Mayfield composition, Hit the Road Jack, in punctuating vocals, rang out a throaty Down Home Blues waving a large white kerchief, and vocalized a trombone. Between songs she added humorous highlight stories from her life, including the time as a young singer, she was first introduced to Etta James back stage as "the Queen of Jazz" which embarrassed her. Her idol, Ms. James, turned around, took the young lady's hand, and said, "Hello Queen." There was standing room only at the start of the early afternoon show; she had sold out the house as she did last year. Between sets she reigned with Queenly style on the sunny, SOhO patio, signing CD's, posing for pictures with her many fans. and passing out flyers for her upcoming California "Divine Jazz Cruise."

With an endearing presence, a bright shining delivery, and queen- like vocals, she wowed the crowd.
