Pianist Tom Grant and vocalist Shelly Rudolph, are next up in the PDX Jazz @ Tony Starlight's Spring concert series. Grant and Rudolph will perform at Tony Starlight's Supper Club - Lounge on NE Sandy Blvd.,  at 8pm, Saturday, April 30. Jazz fans can also hear Tom Grant on KMHD this Friday between 1-4 pm as part of the ongoing, "Grand Piano Series" hosted by Lynn Darroch.

 With an infectious mix of jazz, soul and pop, Tom Grant and Shelly Rudolph share an inescapable chemistry and charm that are obvious from the very first note.  As a jazz pianist, Tom Grant has toured the world with giants such as Tony Williams, Joe Henderson and Charles Lloyd. While earning kudos as an in-demand sideman, it was Tom's own chart topping albums of the 1980s and 90s that gave momentum to the movement later dubbed as smooth jazz. Following his 2009 release, Life is Good, Tom was heralded to be at "the top of his game" by Jazz Times magazine.

 Shelly Rudolph's singing voice has a honeyed richness that she uses with incredible power and musical depth. The Oregonian has described her as the "little singer with the big voice" and she is often likened to singers from Bonnie Raitt to Norah Jones. Shelly has performed and recorded with a wide range of successful talents such as Ken Stange (of Joe Cocker), Dave Matthews (of Etta James, Santana) and 2010 Grammy Award winner David Darling.
