Pianist, Organist, Composer, and Arranger Tammy Lynne Hall is one of the most in-demand musicians in the Bay Area.
Her own compositions reflect an ongoing aspiration to reveal her own soul and best voice to the listening audience. Stylistically, Tammy Hall is equally gifted in Classical, Gospel, Jazz, Brazilian, Salsa and Funk. Her major influences include Tania Maria, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Mary Lou Williams, Dorothy Donnegan, Joe Sample, Gene Harris and Thelonious Monk. Like her influences, Tammy brings virtuosity to the piano that is never ostentatious, and her approach to the music is always genuine and fresh.
"...a musician who has much to offer in the way of originality, fine technique and a rich, emotional quality that is evident on everything she does. Her playing is warm and persuasive and a listener's delight." - Marian McPartland, Piano Jazz 2007
