The 3-time Grammy Award-winning Branford Marsalis Quartet will be joined by guest-vocalist and Grammy Award-winner Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces. The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, and Ellingâ€™s deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility, and outstanding intonation will enable the band to perform a variety of material in new ways. Opening for the Quartet will be jazz vocalist, composer and Miami native, Carmen Lundy. Hailed by The Evening Standard as â€œa genuine jazz singerâ€. Jazz singer, composer and arranger Carmen Lundy hails from Miami, Florida and received her B.M. degree from the University of Miami. In 1978, Lundy moved to NYC, where she worked with numerous Jazz veterans. In 1985, she released her first solo album entitled Good Morning Kiss, which topped the Billboard chart for 23 weeks. She will release her 15th album in February 2017, titled Code Noir. In April 2016, Carmen Lundy was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement in Jazz Award by Black Women In Jazz and The Arts, based in Atlanta, GA. Carmen Lundyâ€™s work as a vocalist and composer has been critically acclaimed by The New York Times, The Village Voice, The Los Angeles Times, Variety, The Washington Post, Jazz Times, Jazziz, Downbeat and Vanity Fair among others, as well as numerous foreign publications.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
