Cheryl Bentyne

The Miami Jazz Party hosts Grammy-winning songstress Cheryl Bentyne at the Barbara Gillman Gallery. With her crystalline high notes, and frisky, teasing tone, the redheaded Manhattan Transfer soprano and husband/keyboardist Corey Allen are sure to induce a sentimental mood. The gallery itself is cozy as a friend's living room. Gracing its walls are several Jazz Age photographs by William Gottlieb. See that alternate take of a famous picture featuring Dizzy Gillespie cocking his head on the bandstand, peering playfully over Ella Fitzgerald's shoulder as she stands, statuesque, before the mic? In this much wider shot, Duke Ellington makes it into the frame. He's sitting in the audience, all smiles.
