San Francisco’s own jazz singer, Mary Stallings will be on the KSM interview Sunday March 16. Mary was born here in the SF city, and now has been through a 60+ year singing career. Mary has been in America’s jazz history in the company of, among others, our Dizzy Gillespie, Cal Tjader, Joe Williams, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billy Eckstein. Her discography runs 50+ years from the 1960′s through the early 2000′s. In Mary’s case, “hearing is believing,” so drift over the web, click on a few of her tracks, and sample the artistry of her singing.
Mary has just recently performed this spring at SF Jazz Center, New Jersey, Oregon, and southern CA. She has a planned European tour this summer. Tune in this Sunday morning, 3/16 to hear our singing lady Mary Stallings in interview with Alisa Clancy on “I’m Talking Jazz” at KCSM.
