Jazz Masters Series: KJ Denhert Quartet
May 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Saturday May 25, WCT will continue its Jazz Masters series with a local favorite showcasing the sounds of the KJ Denhert Quartet. Urban folk jazz great Denhert, named one of Jazz.com’s top female vocalists and four time Independent Music Award nominee, will be accompanied by Mamadou Ba on bass, Aaron Heick on sax, Etienne Stadwijk on keyboard and Ray Levier on drums.
KJ’s performance will move you to laugh, to dance and even to cry. Her special blend of urban folk & jazz has earned her four Independent Music Award nominations and in ’09 she was named one of Jazz.com’s top female vocalists. KJ has appeared at scores of festivals and has residencies at the ’55 Bar’ in NYC and the ‘Baz Bar’ in St. Barts. She also recently completed seven consecutive residencies at the prestigious Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy. She performs solo, duo and with her full band. Consistently praised for her pathos, originality and impeccable musicianship, KJ is one of a kind and not to be missed.
