Kansas City born-and-bred pianist-singer Betty Bryant upholds that fabled music town’s glorious jazz tradition with unerring aplomb and plenty of her own highly individualized style. Bryant, who was mentored by KC legend Jay McShann and first arrived in Hollywood in the late 1950s, always delivers a beguiling, signature combination of elegant funk, understated rhythm and warmly expressive vocals. While she never scored any hit records, Bryant’s marvelously supple touch and well-chilled brand of jazz cool has made her a favorite from Rio to Tokyo to Beverly Hills. Though semi-retired today, the musician, who celebrates her 88th birthday at Catalina’s with a special brunch set, remains an enchanting representative of a decidedly endangered species — the cocktail lounge singer, part entertainer, part oracle and, inarguably, all artist.
