Kelly Harland, known in these parts as a sparkling, elegantly swinging singer of jazz standards, actually has roots in rock and R&B, having been signed years ago to A&M Records in the swirl of swinging London. Harland (above, center) returns to her roots with an all-star band comprising her husband, Chuck Deardorf (bass), Danny Hoefer (guitar), Nick Moore (keyboards), Chris Leighton (drums) and background vocals by two of Cornish College’s brightest lights, instructor Johnaye Kendrick and student Jimmie Herrod. High-heeled sneakers advised.

The Kelly Harland band performs at 8 p.m. Friday at Bake’s Place, 155 108th Ave. N.E., Bellevue $20 (425-454-2776 or Dinner seating at 6 p.m.
