Marilyn Maye at Prairie Village Jazz Festival 2013 DWA_6253
Marilyn is one of the greatest of jazz and cabaret singers and showcases the Great American Songbook in her performances. She appeared 76 times on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson which is the record for a singer. Yet, had we not moved to KC (where she also now lives) we might never have known of her. Even now as an octogenarian, her singing is so marvelous and engaging it impossible to describe. One must experience her performance to understand. We now make it a priority to see her at every opportunity.
