Gail Pettis is a two time winner of Earshot Jazz Golden Ear “Northwest’s Vocalist of the Year” award. Gail has chosen the fitting occasion of the 100th birthday celebration of the First Lady of Jazz herself, Ella Fitzgerald. The term et al. comes from an abbreviation for the Latin phrase et alia, which means “and others.”  Pettis chose this term to illustrate her belief that “I never sing alone – I stand on the shoulders of all the greats who have come before me.  The show includes music by Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and other greats. Gail will also feature some contemporary artists she considers to be personal heroes and role models. Joining Gail is the Darin Clendenin Trio and special guest, the Islands’ own jazz great, Martin Lund.  Ticket are $20 adults / $18 students and available at Darvill’s Bookstore and  online at:  Presented by Orcas Open Arts.
