Campus hosts jazz great Kitty Margolis

Virtuoso vocalist Kitty Margolis and her trio will bring their cutting-edge, "left coast" jazz to California State University, Sacramento at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 18 in the University Union Ballroom.

The show is presented as part of Women's History Month celebrations at CSUS.

Margolis has been described as the inheritor of a great vocal jazz tradition represented by Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae and Betty Carter. Her appearance at CSUS comes hot on the heels of her latest CD release Heart and Soul: Live in San Francisco recorded at the city's On Broadway Theater in North Beach.

Margolis' set is made up of an eclectic style mix of scat, funk and blues with a touch of sweetness. She describes her show as "old school" jazz: a singer backed by a great trio. Critics say the formula works.

"A brilliant reminder of the great pleasures of jazz singing when it is delivered by a mature, gifted, creative artist... the very top level of the jazz vocal art," said Don Heckman of The Los Angeles Times.

Tickets are $10 general and $7 for students and seniors and are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at
