Gail and Smith Dobson
Bay Area vocalist Gail Dobson, wife of the late great pianist, Smith Dobson, mom of vocalist, Sasha Dobson, and multi-instrumentalist son, Smith Dobson V, and sister of our very own pianist, Martan Mann, makes her first appearance at Angelicas. Gail’s music is a marriage of traditional jazz harmonies played straight ahead, and also with Latin rhythms, and highlights her philosophy and strong inclination to allow the music to unfold naturally. through encouraging player interaction and soloing. This is the tradition that she grew up with in jazz, and shares with her band. Tonights music features her son, Smith, on alto and tenor saxophone, and brother Martan on piano. 

Gail Dobson’s singing has been described as "exquisite, to hard swingin”. Her repertoire consists of jazz standards from “The Dobson Songbook”; and new material and arrangements, from her new EP, "How Fragile We Are"  songs written by Sting, Cure, Herbie Hancock.and Jobim to name a few.  

Martan Mann
Martan Mann, improvisational, jazz pianist loves to play in duo-setting with fabulous vocalists and instrumentalists. The Art of the Duo Music Series will highlight the interplay of top-flight vocalists with pianist, Martan Mann in a totally creative presentation.  The result is an exciting musical freedom.
