The Rachel Sorsa Band is a five-piece stellar jazz ensemble: Piano, upright Bass, Drums, Trumpet, and Voice, delivering unique arrangements of straight ahead jazz, bossa nova, blues, swing, and soulful originals by Rachel Sorsa. They have been together for 5 years, have toured all of Southern California on the jazz circuit and have performed at numerous outdoor festivals, benefit concerts, and private events.
Influences are vast in range: Bill Evans, Nina Simone, Eva Cassidy, Etta James, Julie London, Nancy Wilson, Karrin Allyson, Eartha Kitt, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Chet Baker, Madeleine Peyroux, Paulien Van Schaik
The room at Danny's is intimate and the band is very friendly with the crowd. The happy hour menu is nothing special, but the regular dinner menu has some excellent choices.
Music starts about 7:15 and, over 3 sets, continues to 10:00 or so. Come for 1 set or all 3. Note, I'll won't arrive until the second set at about 8pm.
