JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Stephanie McKay at High Fidelity, Rochester Jazz Festival

We finished Saturday night standing at the newly remodeled High Fidelity (they took the Labatts beer signs down) for Stephanie McKay, “Soul Sister Number One.” Her sincere, heartfelt songs deserved a real band, not the hot dogs (five string bass, one handed rolls with a goofy smile) she appeared with. She has one cd out in England and another on the way here. She took the stage like Sly Stone and came out in the crowd to dance and invited people back up on stage with her. Angela Davis crossed with Diana Ross, she is a great entertainer with some real songs. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
