Daryl Sherman @Unitarian Universalist Church 

WHILE MANY contemporary musicians have kept Cole Porter's legacy alive, few have experienced the level of closeness to the legendary composer that Daryl Sherman has.

For 14 years, Sherman played Porter’s own Steinway piano for guests and high-profile Manhattanites at New York’s regal palace, The Waldorf Astoria. Favoring melody and improvisation, Sherman became a fixture at Big Apple jazz haunts like Jilly’s, Eddie Condon’s, and countless supper clubs and hotels.

Fluent in jazz and cabaret, Sherman shares her talents at Unitarian Universalist Church’s Spotlight Concert Series on Thursday. With her impressive background and reputation for warming a room with her charm and mastery, it’s sure to be an eclectic and memorable evening on Troupe Square.

Jazz great Artie Shaw praised Sherman as a “first rate singer-musician.” When Shaw came out of retirement to form a new band, Sherman joined as vocalist, touring to critical acclaim. Following Shaw’s death, Sherman was the star of a tribute concert and received high praises from The New York Times.

The Hostess City is an apt stop for the singer-pianist; in 2009, she released Johnny Mercer: A Centennial Tribute, paying refreshing homage to the Savannah native’s timeless songbook.

A wine and hors d’oeuvres reception will follow Sherman’s solo performance.

Thursday, 7 p.m. $15 advance (available at uusavannah.org), $20 at door
