With over 130 albums to date as an accompanist, Colligan has worked with a long list of luminaries, including Buster Williams, Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Ravi Coltrane, and many others. His musical style incorporates everything from showtunes to funk, from free improvisation to 20th century classical music. His performances include dazzling technique as well as mature restraint.

The Jazzway Holiday Show with Sharón Clark and the Chris Grasso Trio

 

DC's incomparable vocalist, Sharón Clark presents everyone's favorite holiday tunes backed by the Chris Grasso Trio.

Winner of the Billie Holiday Competition and the American Traditions Vocal Competition, Ms. Clark has been one of the premier vocalists in the Baltimore-Washington area for a decade or more and has gotten rave reviews for her performances in New York City. She has also toured extensively in Europe during the last few years.  In fact, Ms. Clark has recently moved to Europe and now comes back to the US for periodic performances.  Catch her while she's in town!! 

Sharón Clark - Vocals

Chris Grasso - Piano

Amy Shook - Bass

Lenny Robinson - Drums

 

 

"Ms. Clarks sound evokes not [Billie] Holiday but Drather a less operatic Sarah Vaughan fused with the more animated side of Shirley Horn, a singer who also liked to take her time. Ms. Clarks voice is rich, her phrasing unfussy, her jazz embellishments minimal. -- Stephen Holden, New York Times

 

 

Like [Sarah Vaughan], her natural sound is almost operatic in its richness, but pure jazz in its improvisational sassiness. But when she brings her remarkable instrument to bear on those pop hits of the post-nuclear age, which she clearly loves, she creates something new and amazing. . . All of which begs an additional question: Why has Sharon Clark been so overlooked, particularly in New York, for all this time? That is surely going to change." Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal

 

 

"A revelation . . . I never thought I'd hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah at her best, but now I have." JazzTimes

 

Biography

 Washington, D.C. standout Sharón Clark has brought festival and concert audiences to their feet across the U.S. and Europe. Her New York run drew raves from the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal, and she won New York’s Bistro Award for Best Vocalist.

 

Ms. Clark has made multiple international tours in recent years, making her debut in Israel and returning to Russia, where she has developed a major following. Her most recent release, “Do it Again — My Tribute to Shirley Horn,” is on its third printing, and she grabs top honors wherever she goes.

 

Ms. Clark won the Gold Medal and $10,000 top prize at the Savannah Music Festival's American Traditions Competition. She then took first place in the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition, which offers a $2,500 prize along with a featured appearance with the Baltimore Symphony.

 

Ms. Clark appears regularly in DC at Blues Alley and Loews Madison Hotel. A featured soloist with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Richmond Symphony, and the Baltimore Symphony, Clark has headlined the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, the Cape May Jazz Festival and the Savannah Music Festival.
