Tammy L. Hall’s feet could barely touch the floor when she sat on a piano bench at four years old. But when she tapped those keys, her family knew she was born to be a musician.
She even started earning paid gigs in elementary school. Her talent earned her accolades in her hometown of Dallas, Texas. But she left the south for Oakland’s Mills College in the late '70s.

The Tammy L. Hall Trio will be performing with singer Veronica Klaus this weekend at Martuni's Piano Bar in San Francisco.
