Swing clas­sic: Annie Sel­lick

Pasatiempo - - On Stage -

Annie Sel­lick is a singer in the old style, which is to say you can hear some Sarah Vaughan, some Car­men McRae, even some Anita O’Day, when she per­forms love songs, es­pe­cially in blues form. The fact that she’s based in Nashville also says some­thing good about her mu­sic. There’s a video at www.an­niesel­lick.com recorded with pian­ist Ger­ald Clay­ton’s trio at the Gene Har­ris Jazz Fes­ti­val in Boise that cap­tures her warmth, her pitch and invention, and her abil­ity to swing with­out ef­fort but with plenty of per­son­al­ity. You can hear her at 6 p. m. on Wed­nes­day, July 9, as part of St. John’s Col­lege’s Mu­sic on the Hill se­ries. The free con­cert takes place on the col­lege’s ath­letic field (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca). Call 505-984-6000 or visit www.sjc. edu/events-and-pro­grams. — B.K.
