More Info: I have the great pleasure of having been invited to perform for this fundraiser! It is for an organization dear to my heart; it was through JazzWorks and their annual summer camp for adult musicians that my passion for jazz blossomed!

JazzWorks offers scholarships (to the camp) for young jazz musicians. This fundraising concert will feature some of these Scholarship Winners, and I can assure you (I've played with them) that they are truly amazing! They will be doing some hard-hitting instrumental swing tunes and even their own originals!

I will balance out the evening with some lovely vocal jazz selections and I have chosen to invite a special accompanist for this special occasion: James McGowan. James is a beautiful pianist and person, with whom I have been wanting to play with for awhile. He is so incredibly creative and makes each tune special, whether by adding a cool groove or leaving lots of space for the freedom to create. Truly magical!
