A VALENTINE’S TRADITION CONTINUES Boston’s First Lady of Jazz Rebecca Parris Returns With ‘In Love with Parris” at the Historic Regent Theatre


On Saturday, February 11 at 8pm Boston’s First Lady of Jazz, Rebecca Parris will take to the stage at The Regent Theatre in Arlington, Massachusetts to present “In Love with Parris,” a 27-year tradition that brings couples from all over the Commonwealth to celebrate the most romantic night of the year. The evening will feature classic romantic songs from the Great American Songbook and beyond, as well as her long-time trio of Brad Hatfield on piano, Peter Kontrimas on bass, and Jim Lattini on drums.

Ms. Parris has performed all over the world with her own groups, as well as with some of jazz’s greatest legends, including Count Basie, Joe Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Terry Gibbs, David “Fathead” Newman, Red Mitchell, Buster Cooper, Nat Pierce, and many others. Her friend and mentor, Shirley Horn once remarked, “Her voice sets her apart from any other vocalist on record today….in one moment she exudes warmth and is poignant, and in another is driving hard and swinging.”

The Regent Theatre in partnership with several area restaurants, Flora Restaurant, Gemma Ristorante, and Fusion Taste Restaurant are offering 3-course Dinner and Show packages available through the Regent box office.
