Kim Prevost & Bill Solley - Duo - New Orleans, Louisiana Event Location: Perugia,Italy Event Type: Umbria Jazz Festival 17th July 2015
Tuck and Patti from New Orleans — A wonderful black voice and a dynamic guitar are my favorite duo at Umbria Jazz Festival. Do you remember The West Coast duo Tuck & Patti? Imagine them on the other side of USA. Here you are Kim Prevost & Bill Solley. In her voice there was soul, in his guitar there were all contaminations from New Orleans. Both of them were able to dominate the stage, attracting audience. After the concert, I told them about my trip to New Orleans Jazz Fest and my interview to B.B. King, before hurricane Katrina arrived. Rosario Pipolo Umbria Jazz Festival Italy

Kim Prevost’s vocals ooze smoky sensuality. She is an inspiring vocal improviser with a delivery both soaring and sultry, and with more than a hint of that special New Orleans flavor. Her range is amazing and her voice insinuates and then soars moving seamlessly from Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder to Hoagy Carmichael. Meanwhile Bill Solley makes music that jumps and jives and then makes you cry with its pristine beauty. Solley’s musicianship is truly amazing, as he works melody, improvisations and baseline simultaneously with virtuosity and ardor on his trademark 7-string guitar. Their repertoire spans vibrant arrangements of jazz, blues, R&B and gospel favorites, with some lively originals, as well. The results are nothing short of astonishing.
