Skyeview: Anna Maria Flechero Debut Performance at Yoshi’s, Oakland, CA
Wow! What a nice set at Yoshi’s on 7/21. Half the fun was just sitting in the audience with so many fans that obviously admire, love and respect Anna Maria Flechero and appreciate her sassy jazz vocal styling. She performed to a full house, and I do mean full, not a single available seat at the 8 pm show on a Monday evening no less! Yoshi’s is the PREMIER jazz house in Northern California. It’s always nice to witness the raising star of a local artist who is finally is getting her due.
Flechero’s Yoshi’s debut is in support of her CD release “Within The Fourteenth Hour”. My picks on the disc are “My Funny Valentine” and “Summer Time”. My pick from the live performance is her original tune “I Betcha Never Thought” a tribute to her mother. Jazz heads would do well to purchase this CD particularly if you like savory sweet morsels of straight ahead soulful jazz.
