Janelle with The Ray Blue Quartet
2 Beverage Minimum
The American Songbook.
Swing, bossa, ballad.
Longing. Searching. Finding. Loving.
On the night that some consider to be a historical moment, 12-12-2012, Janelle & Ray Blue aim to put out good –no, the BEST!-- vibes to help everyone find & keep the joy, peace & (most of all) LOVE that we all long for.
Janelle’s lifelong classical training in strings, woodwinds, percussion & voice naturally led her to jazz, the genre she now considers to be the latest evolution of this world’s music.
After falling in love with The American Songbook & all the greats who wrote & performed these songs, she discovered a burning desire to bring the early 20th century jazz songs & styles into the 21st century. She began partnering with some of the best musicians she could find in New York City.
This evening’s show is a taste of the feast that awaits you in the jazz kitchen where she & Ray Blue are cooking up some seriously smokin’ jazz delights!
The Ray Blue Quartet
Led by composer, arranger, master teacher & tenor sax player Ray Blue, who has recently returned from 11 years in Europe, this quartet will swing, lull, excite & otherwise carry you through the evening in style. www.raybluemusic.com
