The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol with Charles Haynes

Aug 10, Saturday - 1:30pm
Hammer4 Stage

A Bay Area icon known for delighting audiences in jazz, blues, and cabaret clubs in the ‘70s and ‘80s, the Dynamic Miss Faye Carol has shared the stage with some of the most revered names in music, including Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Pharaoh Sanders.

Working with her longtime pianist, Joe Warner, the Berkeley-based Carol has produced concerts around the region in recent years featuring many of the trap set’s greatest practitioners, including Jeff “Tain” Watts, Charles Haynes, Dennis Chambers and Marvin “Smitty” Smith.  

Since getting her start under the tutelage of pianist Martha Young, Lester Young’s niece, Carol has never stopped evolving. From the West Oakland R&B clubs where she made a name for herself in the mid-1960s to the San Francisco cabarets where she reinvented herself as an emotionally expansive interpreter of the Great American Songbook in the 1970s, Carol has captivated audiences with her soulful authority. Over the years her bands have served as proving grounds for jazz masters like pianist Benny Green, saxophonist Howard Wiley and drummer Darrell Green. 

Her latest collaboration showcases Boston drummer Charles Haynes, known for touring with Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, M.I.A. and Queen Latifah, among many others.
