Margie Baker Live at the Bach Dancing & Dynamite
It's said that good things come to those who wait,and after more than thirty years the world has waited long enough for a national recording by jazz and blues singer Margie Baker. Sassy but classy , soulful , spiritual, swinging , bluesy and hugely entertaining, this lady drages her audience so deep into her sound that they can't help but feel the emotion. Now both longtime fans from her performances around the world and newcomers to her sound can finally enjoy hearing this 68 year old on her first nationally released album. Margie Baker and Friends Live at Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society is a double album recorded at the well regarded jazz club by that name located at Half Moon Bay , just south of San Francisco. She was mentored by jazz trumpet legend Dizzy Gillespie, who often had Margie join him onstage whether it was in San Francisco, Oakland , New York City or in Tokyo. In fact, when Dizzy wanted to work with a vocalist, his top choices were Carmen McCrae, Sarah Vaughan and Margie Baker.
