Dolores Scozzesi

Jazz vocalist Dolores Scozzesi hit the stage running with “It’s All Right with Me” (Cole Porter) and, in four bars, bassist Lyman Medeiros and guitarist Dori Amarilio helped her approach 100 m.p.h. “Here Comes the Sun” (George Harrison) was equally as compelling and is the title cut of her new CD.

Scozessi delivered “Harlem Nocturne” (Earle Hagen/Dick Rogers, with words added by Mel Tormé to become “Nocturne for the Blues”) in her own haunting fashion of weaving dreams and lyrics together to create magic. Arranged by Dori Amarilio, she expertly took us through dark shadows and the rain, while Kevin Winard suggested an exotic place with his drum beats.

Scozessi delighted with her fun-filled “Tequila” (Chuck Rio, lyrics by Mark Winkler and Dori Amarilio). Arranger and pianist Quinn Johnson deliciously backed her on “(In My) Solitude” (Duke Ellington/Eddie DeLange) with Scozzesi’s prayer surely answered to “Send back my love.”

Never miss her show.

Mary Bogue

Born to upstate New York parents Nelson Binner and Gladys Witt, Mary Bogue was the fourth of five children. Her love of acting was apparent early in her life, when she acted out imagined scenes in the second story hallway of their home on Division Street. Moving to California in 1959 only fueled the fire and soon she tried out and got the part in Beauty and the Beast, a children's production at The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. The bug followed her into junior and high school productions, but when she struck out on her own in the early 70s, she found it wasn't as easy as sitting at the world famous Schwab's on Sunset. Her first audition stopped her dead in her tracks for years when the "casting director" expected nudity. It was only in 1990 that she returned to her first love, albeit slowly as she was a caregiver to 16 foster daughters. Only when she was cast in Antonio Bandera's directorial debut, Crazy in Alabama (1999)(which she was cut from) did she pursue this dream.
