Mary Sorensen Jazz Quintet

Friday, July 12, 2019

The Mary Sorensen jazz quintet performs.

This group’s arrangements are lucid and light, giving ample room for an exciting evening. Band leader Mary Sorensen’s knack for deploying individual players gives improvisations distinctive character. 

A singer, songwriter, teacher and composer, Mary transcends an expanse of styles both vocally and instrumentally.  Playing in a quintet affords her the freedom to scat, her favorite vocalist style. 
 
Once opening for Grammy award-winner Faith Hill, Mary also provided background vocals for B.W. Stevenson. Formerly a soloist for a band in Wiesbaden, Germany, Mary toured extensively in Europe, including a popular jazz festival at Majorica Island in Spain.  A graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz program, Mary was featured as a guest vocal soloist and recorded with the University of North Texas One O’clock Lab Band under the directorship of Neil Slater, UNT Jazz Singers under the directorship of Paris Rutherford, and the UNT Zebras under the directorship Dan Haerle.
