With THE QUANDO SWING, you can expect the unexpected as Rosemary Loar offers jazz as a smorgasbord and standards with a modern take. The show is a feast of incredible tastes and textures. In this evening of wonderful music, there is laughter, poignancy and reflection. As Rosemary progresses through her program, you find yourself reminded of the light effervescence of Ella Fitzgerald, the smoldering intensity of Billie Holiday, and the haunting tones of Peggy Lee. Rosemary can flit into a light and bouncy “word-scat” a la Annie Ross, lay back soulful and sultry (“I Ain’t Got Nothin’ But the Blues”), or hypnotize with a pretty love ballad (“Prelude To A Kiss”). And Rosemary Loar brings one more flavor to every show that is uniquely her own--a quirky and spontaneous sense of humor.
