Jazz Tuesdays featuring the Music of Cole Porter with Special Guest Nicole New
October 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Jazz Tuesdays is a weekly event featuring great jazz musicians from all over the state of Michigan. Each week brings in a different guest artist and a new experience.
For this special show we focus on the music of the great composer and songwriter Cole Porter. Having emerged as one of the major songwriters for Broadway by the 1930’s, many of Porter’s compositions have become jazz standards and have been immortalized in recordings and performance by countless major jazz artists.
To headline the show we we welcome back Detroit singer Nicole New. Nicole draws influence from Jazz, Pop, Opera and musical theatre, and combines them into a sound all her own. You may have heard her locally at the 2016 East Lansing Summer Solstice Jazz Festival, or at the 2016 Lansing JazzFest, where she was featured with the Woodward Horns. Nicole has also appeared at Detroit’s Jazz Cafe at Music Hall, Cliff Bell’s, the London Chop House, and the Steinway Jazz Cafe, and has performed with the Midland Symphony.
The host band will play the featured set at 7pm, followed by a jam session until 10!
Jazz Tuesdays is generously sponsored by Gregg Hill Publishing, the East Lansing Summer Solstice Jazz Festival, and INDe Drum Lab.
