It’s been an exciting year for Dara Tucker. The singer performed at two of New York’s highest-profile jazz clubs, The Blue Note and Smoke. She released a new record, Soul Said Yes, which featured a crack band, including international jazz sensation Charlie Hunter, master of the 7-string guitar. The record showed up on the major jazz radio charts, and when Hunter came to town in the spring, he invited Tucker onstage to sing. Soul Said Yes is an intriguing blend of traditional jazz, R&B and gospel, with Tucker’s husband Greg Bryant co-producing (and laying down some deep bass grooves). On “Save Their Souls,” Tucker, Hunter & Co. bring to mind Lynn “The Female Preacher” Collins working it out with the JBs. Jazz standard “Body and Soul” and Willy Wonka’s signature song “Pure Imagination” get sensitive piano treatments from Paul Horton and Mason Embry, respectively. But the standout may be “Space,” a greasy mid-tempo number that sounds like a lost track from a late-’70s Stevie Wonder session. Admission is $20, $10 for high school and college students.
