Sharon Clark, Stefon Harris, and Avant-Garde Saxophone: Jazz Setlist, Sept. 11-17

The single most unfairly neglected artist in Setlist's pool of local talents? That'd be SharA3n Clark , the great singer who now hosts the D.C. Jazz Singer's Jam on weekends. She has a deep contralto voice - though "deep" is admittedly a tricky term in the realm of the female voice; she's no Nina Simone , though perhaps similar to the later years of Sarah Vaughan .
