Gold Coast Jazz Society will present, “The Varied Palette of Jazz”, a 90-minute program including a variety of jazz selections showcasing the varied colors and moods of jazz featuring jazz vocals by award-winning vocalist, Dana Paul.
Dana's vocal talents surfaced almost accidentally. After high school graduation, Dana set out in a van to see the country. Unable to play a horn and drive at the same time, he began singing along to every song that came on the radio. He found he had an a special affinity for the jazz influenced material and when he returned to Miami a year later, he established his first band.
His 9 piece Nantucket Sound Band is still very busy and has enjoyed much regional success. Dana has recently succumbed to the lure of performing jazz in its purer form. Describing the jazz trio, he says, "Obviously no two performances are alike.
Dana is also featured vocalist with S. Florida's most extraordinary big band, the Peter Graves' Atlantean Driftwood Band, hosting the annual Sanibel Jazz on the Green festival.
This performance is made possible with support from the Broward Cultural Division.
