Event Details

The Ken Clark Organ Trio
The Ken Clark Organ Trio “leans on the beat, (high stepping funk, shuffle boogaloo back beat ballad), build dynamic climaxes sprinkle in jazz solos and deliver the goods. Clark controls the B3 like a master: hip bass lines, sizzling chordal washes, feel-good riffs, funky blues lines and syncopated accents figure in the mix. Can’t beat the feeling.” — Owen Cordle, Jazz Times

“You might be skeptical about listening to [a band] without a bass player, but from the opening bars of the first track, school is in session! Organist Ken Clark has a punchy, thick bass tone, and he grooves like a funky S.O.B. His right hand is pretty happening, too. A must hear for fans of jazzy, funky groove music.” — Bass Player Magazine

Ken Clark
Ken is internationally known as one of the world’s greatest jazz organists. He was also the winner of the New England Blues Society, Keyboardist of the the Year —four times. His technical ability joined with his natural feel for funk and soul makes a night with the Ken Clark Organ Trio an authentic, special one indeed. Ken has toured and recorded with Bernard Purdie, Melvin Sparks, and David “Fathead” Newman, among others.

Amanda Carr
Emmy nominee, composer, and multi-styled vocalist/pianist Amanda Carr began professionally as a teenager in the rock and pop scene, playing in Boston area night clubs. In later years, she performed jazz and big band, focusing on fresh interpretations of the Great American Songbook, receiving critical acclaim. She’s performed and recorded in the U.S. and abroad. Twice a feature story by respected writer/author Nat Hentoff in The Wall Street Journal, she garnered global exposure as he hailed her, “. . . a true jazz singer in a time of wannabes.” 

She has been a guest vocalist with Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops, The Artie Shaw Orchestra, Harry James Band, and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, among many others. 

Her most ambitious project to date, a big band album entitled “Common Thread,” debuted on the top of multiple Jazz Best Seller charts and in the top 50 on Billboard. Amanda is an official CBS Radio commentator for Boston’s prestigious annual “Boston Pops July 4th” concert on the Esplanade with WBZ News Radio.
