Suddenly It’s Spring!
Sherri Roberts sings songs of spring

Sherri Roberts

It may be windy and foggy and cold outside, but the calendar still says May — and that means Spring. For twenty years now, Sherri has curated an intriguing set list of tunes befitting everyone’s favorite season — swinging from the familiar to the obscure, from Clifford Brown and Tad Dameron to Rodgers and Hammerstein, Johnny Mercer and Blossom Dearie’s favorite, Bob Haymes.
Oh, “They Say It’s Spring” — and with Sherri’s sweet turn of a melody and deft mining of a lyric, by the time you saunter out the door onto blustery Chenery Street, you’ll be singing of robins, daffodils and sunshine — freezing temperatures be damned! 
The season isn’t over ’til Sherri’s sung.  This will be a date to revel in.
David Udolf handles the piano chores, if you can call ’em that… though there’s nothing chorish about ’em, and nothing churlish about David’s playing.  Chris Amberger on bass and Jim Zimmerman on drums round out this stellar trio.
Sherri has a lovely way with a lyric and several cds under her belt, with backing by fine NYC jazz musicians and the cream of the San Francisco crop.  David plays with elan in the thick of the kind of scrappy bebop players that hold down Seven Mile House gigs just to play, and the ones who double as silky smooth practitioners to back singers in the finest boites of the world’s capital cities.
