Come hear Lauren Kinhan pay tribute to legendary vocalist Nancy Wilson and her collaborations with jazz legends Cannonball Adderley and George Shearing. Lauren uses these iconic partnerships as the starting point for “A Sleepin’ Bee,” her first album of standards.
This show will be the first time she has performed the album live with her original band, pianist/co-arranger/creative partner Andy Ezrin, bassist Matt Penman, drummer Jared Schonig, and special guest trumpeter Ingrid Jensen. Before the show, at 7:00 p.m., there will be an interview with Kinhan, Ezrin and eight-time Grammy-winning producer Elliot Scheiner.
Lauren is an accomplished performer-composer-improviser with highly-acclaimed albums of her own music as well as being a 25-year member of the beloved vocal group New York Voices. She is co-founder of two diverse and inventive supergroups, Moss and JaLaLa. She brings her unique perspective and idiosyncratic personality to this delightful album.
