For the first time in St. Louis, these two living legends will join forces on one stage! The New York Times proclaims Freddy Cole “has an impeccable sense

of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.” Houston Person’s lifelong relationship with the Gateway City has endeared his soulful saxophone sound to generations of listeners. This one is sure to swing the roof off the place!


"Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive."

"Whatever the accompaniment, Cole extracts the maximum from each tune asserting his stature as our greatest living jazz singer."
