STU SHELTON AND FRIENDS

Jazz aficionados packed the Unity of Naples Church Wednesday in a memorable and swinging concert presented by noted area pianist, Stu Shelton. Though most of these artists who performed-and there were ten of them in all-perform locally, there is no doubt that their playing is as good or better than any "national" artist on the jazz scene. Gauging by the level of response from the sold-out house, the audience agreed.
Shelton presented a varied and satisfying program of swing, bop, and touches of modernism. The players on hand were presented in various groupings to spotlight their unique talents. The only constant throughout was Shelton, who played for everyone.
...
Cole Porter's "Everytime We Say Goodbye," Bernice Petkere's "Close Your Eyes" and Ellington's venerable "Take the A Train," were performed by the duo of Dean, singing and playing drums simultaneously, and Shelton.
...
After an intermission, singer Carla Valenti, Shelton and drummer John Lamb performed Billie Holiday's fondly remembered "God Bless the Child," done as an up-tempo swinger; Shirley Horn's touching "Here's to Life" and Ellington's "I'm Beginning to See the Light.
...
Indeed, Zottola's Expandable Jazz Band, with Shelton, saxophonist Jerry Zawicki, drummer John Lamb and Shelton, often works seven nights per week to consistently crowded and enthusiastic houses.
...
Stu Shelton, who also serves as the Unity Church's musical director, deserves a great deal of credit for every aspect of this concert, which was actually more like a mini-festival. He paced it beautifully and proved to be quite the genial master of ceremonies. It all worked. Naples as a world-class city for jazz? You'd better believe it.

...
Others who immediately come to mind are the sublimely lyrical trumpeter Bill Papineau, who was with Jebry for years, and pianist Stu Shelton, a technically astounding artist who leads his own groups and appears often with leader and trumpeter Bob Zottola.

We'd like to try and present ...

We'd like to try and present more of them to Marco," Beverly Dahlstrom said in advance of what was to be a two-hour concert full of many jazz classics, performed by Stuart Shelton (piano/bass), Rebecca Richardson (vocals) and Patricia Dean (drums).

...
The bassist scheduled to perform that day didn't make it, so, premiere jazz pianist Stuart Shelton struck the first bass chords using his keyboard and his left hand, while his right hand improvised on piano.
...
Shelton and Blankman had worked together in a past Marco Players production â€" Flora Pasquale Strikes Back!
...
Shelton and Dean began with a jazz conversation between the two, full of unique, improvisational licks that brought about hearty applause from the audience.
...
Shelton then brought out vocalist, and Unity Church of Naples' choir director, Rebecca Richardson.
...
The audience seemed prepared for those kinds of songs, as they swayed along to the music, and gave ever more applause during and after Richardson's strong lyrical performances and the handy work of Shelton and Dean.
...
Throughout the concert Shelton kept his eyes transfixed on his keyboard, letting his facial gestures move with the music.He would look up only after songs, with a nod and a smile to the audience's applause.
...
The audience seemed more than pleased, as they gave the trio hearty applause â€" after the back-and-forth improvisations from Dean and Shelton and strong vocal segments from Richardson â€" and at the conclusion of the Saturday afternoon concert.
