Jazz vocalist Whitney James and La Lucha Trio perform in the first of a five concert series presented by the Jazz Club of Sarasota in the Court Cabaret of the Florida Studio Theatre. Whitney James doesn’t just sing a tune—she creatively engages it. Her sense of time and pacing make her a consummate musician’s singer—she knows how to work with a band, instead of asking it to merely back her. Performing with Ms. James will be the La Lucha trio. La Lucha won the “Best in the Bay” Jazz ensemble award from Creative Loafing 4 consecutive years. Mark Feinman, drums, Alejandro Arenas, bass and John O’Leary, piano.
