Earshot Jazz continues our partnership with Town Hall, presenting powerhouse jazz musicians in one-night-only livestreams.
Dedicated Jazz singer Johnaye Kendrick is “not just a vocalist,” says the legendary saxophonist Jimmy Heath. “She is a complete musician with a beautiful instrument and open ears.” Kendrick joins us via livestream for a performance brimming with sterling vocals, and backed by Bill Anschell on piano, Chris Symer on bass, and D’Vonne Lewis on drums. Kendrick’s shows feature her own original compositions as well as fresh interpretations of beloved jazz and pop compositions. She focuses on graceful renditions of jazz standards and composes music and lyrics where she often accompanies herself on harmonium, violin, viola and percussion. Tune in for a concert filled with Kendrick’s signature expressive tones and bright, warm disposition.
