Just Announced! SBJS presents Jazz Vocalist Janis Mann & Her Trio -- Sunday Nov 19 @ SOhO
Posted: 11/2/17
The Santa Barbara Jazz Society is pleased to present jazz vocalist Janis Mann and her trio on Sunday, November 19 from 1 to 4pm at SOhO. Award-winning vocalist Janis Mann is described by critic Andrew Gilbert as “brilliant,” and by critic Don Heckman as “one of the Southland’s finest jazz vocal artists.” Her warm alto voice imbues each choice song she sings with cool but concentrated emotion.
At once both a striking song stylist and a fearless improviser, Janis Mann is that rare artist who can sweep you away with her captivating sound. She is a true jazz singer in the manner of Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, and Shirley Horn, yet with a sound all her own. An exciting and engaging performer, Mann’s rich timbre, flexibility, and range often invites comparison to Sarah Vaughan. In addition to working with the great Kenny Werner on two outstanding recording projects, Janis has performed with Diane Schuur, Roy Haynes, Terrell Stafford, Dave Frishberg, Jack Sheldon, John Clayton, Eric Reed, the Caribbean Jazz Project, Roberta Gambarini, and many other jazz luminaries.
Janis is based in Los Angeles and performs often in New York, notably at the Blue Note and the Kitano. Her recent touring includes New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland. Her latest CD, “Celestial Anomaly,” with pianist Kenny Werner followed in the path of her previous two releases by charting at the top of the national jazz radio charts. JazzTimes writer Christopher Loudon says, “Mann is not only one of the most skilled vocalists around, but one of the most alluring as well.”
Admission to the concert is $15 for Jazz Society members, $25 for non-members, $7 for local jazz musicians with membership, and $5 for full-time students. Tickets are available ONLY at the door and doors open at 12:30. Jazz Society members will be admitted first and seating is limited so plan to arrive early. Please join us for an afternoon of exciting jazz. For more information please call 805-687-7123 or visit our website sbjazz.org ... Presented by: Santa Barbara Jazz Society ... Venue: SOhO Restaurant & Music Club
