New York City pianist and vocalist Champian Fulton plays Columbus for the first time next week as part of her 30+ date American and European summer tour. The Champian Fulton Quartet plays Notes on Friday, May 11th at 8pm – Doors open at 7pm, and tickets are available here. As Fulton told me, for this show “Champian is bringing her reunion quartet to Ohio, back together again after their popular recording Sings and Swings, released in 2012. On drums is Fukushi Tainaka who appeared with Lou Donaldson for more than 30 years, on bass is Hide Tanaka who appeared with Junior Mance for more than 10 years, and on trumpet and flugelhorn Stephen Fulton, who toured the world with the Woody Herman Orchestra and the Clark Terry Big Bad Band, among many others. This quartet will be going into the studio in late May to record Champian’s 10th album!” The material will include songs from Fulton’s 9 recordings, including her “unpretentious, swinging and fun” (Downbeat Magazine) 2017 release Speechless featuring her original compositions. See below for video and get ready for a night of world-class vocal jazz!
