Come see Faye Carol, a Bay Area jazz singer legend who has been performing since the 1960's, at the Tarea Hall Pittman South branch. Ms. Carol will pay tribute to some of the great woman jazz singers of all time in celebration of Women's History Month. The San Francisco Examiner once wrote that "No singer in the Bay area comes close to Carol's sheer intensity; she doesn't just sell a song... she sells her soul for that song." This event is free.
