Jazz LIVE at Marine View featuring Tom Grant with guest vocalist Shelly Rudolph

Jazz, Pop
Tom Grant ( master instrumentalist, talented singer and natural entertainer nimbly walks the line between jazz tradition and modern pop. This soft-spoken Oregon native’s inspired songwriting produces propulsive R&B grooves, infectious melodic hooks, and stylish ballads with equal ease. He plays jazz piano with the harmonic sophistication and deep sense of swing that only comes from more than four decades on the bandstand. As one of the Pacific Northwest’s most renowned musical artists, Tom Grant’s career achievements reflect his unique ability to embrace the full spectrum of contemporary music. During the 70’s, Tom played with jazz luminaries like trumpeter Woody Shaw, saxophonists Joe Henderson and Charles Lloyd. His most life-changing gig was with drummer Tony Williams who himself transformed the 1960’s Miles Davis Band both musically and commercially into a worldwide jazz phenomenon. With Tony and bassist Patrick O’Hearn, Tom recorded and toured worldwide from 1978-1980. In the 80’s and 90’s Tom was considered by many to be the father of the Smooth Jazz sound, recording albums on major labels including Verve, Shanachie and Windham Hill. Several of these shot to number one on the Smooth Jazz charts. Grant currently writes and records new music on his own label, Nu-Wrinkle Records. His songs can be heard on popular TV series, both network and cable. In his hometown of Portland, Tom works tirelessly for a number of charities. Over the past thirty years, his music has been a staple of homegrown giving for several non-profits. He was one of the original pianists of the Ten Grands concerts in Portland and Seattle, an annual event supporting music education. Tom also organizes an annual concert for a non-profit that feeds disadvantaged people. For his intimate evening at Marine View he is joined by the wonderful songstress Shelly Rudolph (, described by Jazz Times as “a robust and captivating vocalist” and by LA Weekly as having “the looks, talent and charisma to win over new crowds and a honey-glazed throat to send chills up and down your spine.” Don’t miss an amazing evening of music in the beautiful confines of Marine View.
