Charenée Wade (JAZZ)

Live Music

January 23, 2019

Weis Center for the Performing Arts

 

Charenée Wade is not one to hold back or let fear stand in her way. The first artist ever to enter two Thelonious Monk Vocal competitions, she walked away from the second one in 2010 with instant buzz, coming in second to her new friend Cécile McLorin Salvant. Known for expert vocal improvisation and her seriously swinging groove, Wade evokes a classic jazz sound akin to Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan, two of her musical touchstones. Her debut, Offering: The Music of Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson, pays tribute to another inspiration, the socially conscious poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron.

Wednesday, Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m., Weis Center Atrium FREE! Tickets not required.
