ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
The GRAMMY-nominated all-female quartet/quintet, Straight Ahead performs music that ranges from bop to poppish, modern jazz to R&B and fusion. The group came together in Detroit in 1987. Comprised of lead singer Cynthia Dewberry (who also played flute), violinist Carter, keyboardist Eileen Orr, bassist Marion Hayden-Banfield, and drummer Gayelynn McKinney (all of the musicians also sang), Straight Ahead was a finalist in the 1989 Sony Innovators competition. The following year, they opened for Nina Simone at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
