Sharon Garner and the Dorian May Trio (Sharon Garner, vocalist; Dorothea May, bass; Dorian May, piano; and Gabe Yanez, drums) are known for their creative arrangements of tunes from the Great American Songbook and popular tunes that are filled with "heart and soul." Their repertoire includes Latin jazz, ballads and mashups of rock and jazz.
The genesis of a jazz band that clicks, cooks, creates and has all the right elements fit into place, can become “magic” - what all jazz aims for. Technical skills account for a large portion of the mix, but it’s an undefinable unison and synchronicity that makes the experience really deliver. Sharon Garner and the Dorian May Trio create this spell with each of their performances, taking their audiences along for a wonderful journey into their unique jazz arrangements.
