For my fifty-sixth birthday, my partner took me to Relish, a celebrated jazz club in Philly, to see The Sherry Butler Quartet. The evening was enchanting. We had dinner (Southern style, delicious, very large portions) and then saw the show. Sherry Butler is a Philly institution — extremely powerful — and her quartet was pretty awesome too. My favorite song of the evening was Four Women originally done by Nina Simone. Nina lived in Center City Philadelphia and we saw her on Penn’s campus decades ago when we were freelancing for the concert producer. Philadelphia has quite a jazz history!
Sherry is a customer Barbara first met at the Mt. Airy Post Office and she also performed at the Unitarian Universalist church in Philly on Stenton Avenue last year.
Relish is an experience not to be missed — we’re planning to go back soon. Here are some photos from the evening.
