Music In Homes: Pre-New Year’s Eve Celebration: Carla Cook Quartet

Celebrate New Year’s Eve a night early at our 10th season kickoff of Palmer Woods Music in Homes. Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Carla Cook is a “straight ahead jazz diva with a gospel soul, big band heart, classical cool and improvisational hot. And what a beautiful voice,” raves JazzTimes. Internationally acclaimed, Cook is a native Detroiter and Cass Tech grad based in New York with her longtime collaborators, famed violinist Regina Carter and pianist Cyrus Chestnut. An all-star ensemble will accompany Cook: guitarist A. Spencer Barefield, bassist Dave Young (Canadian Juno awardee who performed with Oscar Peterson for decades), and percussionist Sean Dobbins. The festivities include a delicious light meal, gourmet pastries and desserts, and sparkling wine. This concert promises to be a very special evening of stellar traditional and contemporary jazz. Share a champagne toast, ­delicious food, and memorable music to ­celebrate the New Year in a majestic room designed for chamber music­. Soaring carved wooden walls and ­a bay window stage with sparkling stained glass surround this enchanting space inside an ­English Tudor built in 1925.

Tickets: $60/VIP: $70
