Part of the new Discovery Series in the KC Jazz Club
An "extraordinary singer" who knows how to "pry open all the sweet spots in songs" (The New York Times), Gretchen Parlato possesses a rare ingenuity and passion for lyrics that belie her age. Winner of the 2004 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition, she has developed a soothing style of fresh, breezy phrases and lilting Brazilian rhythms. Parlato has performed with many of today's top talents, including Terence Blanchard, Carmen Lundy, and Herbie Hancock, who says she has "a deep, almost magical connection to the music."
