A concert celebrating the life of Overton Berry
Featuring Diane Schuur & Bruce Phares/Garfield High School Jazz Band
In a tribute to Seattle’s beloved pianist Overton Berry, vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur, and bassist Bruce Phares, come together along with an ensemble of local musicians, to celebrate the magic that was Overton Berry.
Berry’s career began during the waning years of the legendary Jackson St. scene of the 1950’s, and continued through 2020, with a bi-monthly residency at Tula’s Jazz Club. Berry was a pianist with a deep connection to the blues, and a penchant for enchanting a room with his ebullient personality, and gentlemanly demeanor. He carried a devoted gallery of longtime fans from his legendary trio residence at the Doubletree Inn in the 1960’s, to his time playing with bassist Bruce Phares at Tula’s in the 2010’s. Always the entertainer, Berry was a commanding presence in a room, and backed it up elegantly with his full, rich sound.
