Performance Notes

× Outstanding vocalist Vanessa Rubin returns to the Shea stage for a third performance.  Rubin trained under grandmasters like Frank Foster and Barry Harris in the 1980s, and went on to record with a wide array of artists such as Monty Alexander, Steve Turre, Herbie Hancock, James Williams, Etta Jones, and Toots Thielemans. She has toured with Herbie Hancock, the Woody Herman Orchestra and the Jazz Crusaders.  Rubin’s talents are not limited to vocals—she has experience as a producer, arranger, and music business consultant and facilitator. She will be accompanied by Big Beat, an exciting, WP alumni-led jazz orchestra, which just released their first recording.
