Tuck and Patti

Tuck and Patti
For 36 years this unique, genre-crossing vocal/guitar jazz duo has cast its passionate musical spell worldwide, capturing the hearts of lovers, the respect of jazz buffs and the jaw-dropping awe of guitarists and singers.

To understand Tuck & Patti, start with the wellspring of love within them, then their music begins to make perfect sense. Married 33 years, Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart continue to stoke the fires, not only of their own love, but also of their love of life and their passion for making music together. They have a long-standing tradition: Minimalist arrangements featuring Tuck's extraordinary virtuosity and Patti's rich mezzo soprano.

Patti, renowned for her remarkable ability to touch hearts directly with her voice, exudes the soft, centered yet powerful graciousness of a gospel singer; Tuck almost wears his brain on his skin, anticipating the thousands of musical decisions he'll have to send to his ten fingers during the course of a performance. Seeing the virtuosity and complexity of Tuck's guitar work, most are surprised to learn that Patti is the actual writer, arranger and producer. Without even blinking, Tuck-the-problem-solver brags, "Patti writes and arranges; I am just the orchestra."

Nov 23, 8pm to 10pm, Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, 2020 Addison Street, Berkeley

Hayden Everett

Gearing up to release his debut EP, Hayden Everett is a 20-year-old indie songwriter from Los Angeles. He is currently studying jazz piano performance at UCLA, with a minor in Music Industry. Hayden was the overall and audience choice winner of UCLA's 2018 Spring Sing, joining past competitors Sara Bareilles (a two-time winner), Maroon 5 and Linkin Park.

Hayden's music is raw and vulnerable, and boasts a unique sound influenced by his upbringing in jazz and R&B, folk, and worship music. Some of his main influences include Ben Howard, Bon Iver, The Oh Hellos, and Kevin Garrett.
