Performing selections by Clooney from the Great American Songbook, James will be accompanied by local jazz musicians Brian Cashwell on piano and Michael Sharfe on bass.
Many in our area will recognize James from her work on the Bob Braun show in the late 1970s where she served as co-hostess for nine years. Today, she continues her vocal career in radio and television commercials and film voice over while also appearing regularly with big bands and trios throughout the area.
