Featuring Joe Gransden and Kathleen Bertrand with special guest Marilyn Maye

Georgia’s own Johnny Mercer was one of twentieth century America’s most prolific and beloved songwriters. Between 1929 and 1976, Mercer composed more than 1,000 songs, received nineteen Academy Award nominations and cofounded Capitol Records. A pair of modern jazz icons, Atlanta jazz vocalist Kathleen Bertrand and hard bop trumpeter and vocalist Joe Gransden, will pay tribute to Mercer’s incomparable legacy by performing a selection of his many hits.
