Linda TilleryIn an inspiring show for a great cause, an impressive lineup of musical talent join forces to keep vital Bay Area cultural asset Linda Tillery mobile!
 
Linda’s powerful, shimmering voice has been the centerpiece in many of the Bay Area’s most popular bands over the past four decades. A central figure in the emerging women’s music movement in the 1970s and ‘80s, Linda was also a founding member of Bobby McFerrin’s vocal ensemble Voicestra. She currently leads the Cultural Heritage Choir, performing African American roots music.
 
Tuck & PattiFor nearly three decades, the unique vocal/guitar jazz duo of Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart has cast its passionate musical spell worldwide, capturing the hearts of lovers, the respect of jazz buffs, and the jaw-dropping awe of guitarists. Beautifully blending Patti's velvet gospel vocals and writing and arranging prowess with Tuck's guitar virtuosity in a wide-ranging repertoire of great American songbook favorites and originals, the duo have gained worldwide fans and critical acclaim since making their first major splash with the groudbreaking Windham Hill Jazz album Tears of Joy in 1988.
 
Keith TerryBody percussionist Keith Terry brings together music and dance in a virtuosic display of hand-clapping, palm-rubbing, cheek-popping rhythm, in projects like Slammin, Crosspulse, and the Circus Band Extraordinaire. Keith has collaborated with artists from Bobby McFerrin to the Turtle Island String Quartet, and is also the artistic director of the International Body Music Festival.
 
Ray ObiedoRichmond native Ray Obiedo is a jazz guitarist with a solid background in R&B. He’s appeared on albums with Herbie Hancock, Julian Priester, and Sheila E, and led the jazz fusion group Kick and the rock band Rhythmus 21 before exploring contemporary smooth jazz through his Windham Hill releases.
 
Wayne WallaceTrombonist/keyboardist/vocalist/composer Wayne Wallace has contributed his impressive talents to a wide range of programs, both live and on film. Among his recent musical works are The Quilt, a spoken word/dance piece based on a quilt designed by the artist Faith Ringold and Dance Variations, a suite for piano, cello, and percussion for Jean Jeanrenaud of the Kronos String Quartet.
 
Faye CarolA Bay Area diva with Mississippi roots, Faye Carol infuses the blues into everything from Cole Porter to Michelle Legrand songs. With a voice combining great beauty and power and an extraordinary gift for connecting with audiences, Faye brings a wide-ranging background in gospel, jazz, and innovative Oakland funk to her uplifting style.
 
Rebeca MauleónAn outstanding Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz pianist, Rebeca Mauleón is also a bandleader, composer, Grammy-nominated producer, musicologist, and educator. From her work with an array of musical legends including Tito Puente, Carlos Santana, and Steve Winwood, to her diverse compositional projects (ranging from symphonic works and Afro-Cuban jazz to music for film and television), Rebeca has carved a niche as one of the most multi-faceted artists on the world music scene.
 
Molly HolmInventive singer and composer Molly Holm blends jazz, improvisation, and North Indian Raga. For more than eight years, Molly was a key member of Bobby McFerrin's original Voicestra, and she has performed with composer Terry Riley and tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain, and has collaborated with Linda on multiple ensemble projects (Voicestra, SoVoSó, Vocal Front, Jukebox).
