Special Valentine’s Concert with vocalist Marion Cowings

Jazz Room Series at Home<br>Special Valentine’s Concert with vocalist Marion Cowings


The silky and versatile baritone voice of Marion Cowings has been a major part of the vocal jazz world since the 1960s.  A native New Yorker with early mentorship from Jon Hendricks and a LaGuardia High School education that included performing with Leonard Bernstein, he has gone on to perform at such prestigious venues as the Kennedy Center in Washington, and was the lead in the Duke Ellington opera Queenie Pie directed by Mercer Ellington at Lincoln Center.  He has been active at the 92nd Street Y Jazz in July series, and is heard often at New York’s more intimate clubs like Small’s and Mezzrow.  He has collaborated with such jazz giants as Clark Terry, Jimmy Heath, Ron Carter, Gary Bartz and Bobby Watson, and is a co-founder of the jazz vocal department at New York University, where he taught for years. The band for this concert features Marion Cowings on vocals, Joe Davidian on piano, Noriko Ueda on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums.
