About the Artist(s)

Wild Blue Herons are the magnetic husband-and-wife duo of Bill Sample (piano/keys) and Darlene Cooper (vocals).  They embrace a broad sound which runs from groove-oriented jazz with a pop/gospel twist (reminiscent of Joe Sample and Lalah Hathaway) to intimate ballads of the great ladies of jazz.

Bill’s emotional, playful and meticulous accompaniment added to Darlene’s “rich stunning vocals, where every note is delivered flawlessly” (Tom Haugen, Take Effect) creating a warm and mesmerizing synergy. Sharing a particular passion for song stylist, Nancy Wilson, they tug on your heartstrings through their beautiful spin and storytelling.

Pure emotion…a full-on listening experience that sizzles deceptively” (Chris Spector, Midwest Record).

They are excited to be returning to Frankie’s Jazz Club with Tim Porter – guitar, Randall Stoll – drums and Miles Hill – bass
