Urban Folk Jazz Legend KJ Denhert & Quartet Return To Westchester Collaborative Theater
On Saturday May 25, Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) will continue its Jazz Masters series with a local favorite showcasing the sounds of the KJ Denhert Quartet. Urban folk jazz great Denhert, named one of Jazz.com's top female vocalists and four time Independent Music Award nominee, will be accompanied by Mamadou Ba on bass, Aaron Heick on sax, Etienne Stadwijk on keyboard and Ray Levier on drums.
This return engagement for Denhert follows sold-out appearances over the past 2 years at WCT's black box performance space.
Reviewers have said that Denhert's performance "will move you to laugh, to dance and even to cry." They have praised her pathos, originality and impeccable musicianship, calling her "one-of-a-kind and not to be missed."
Denhert has appeared at scores of festivals, has had residencies at the '55 Bar' in NYC, the 'Baz Bar' in St. Barts, and recently completed seven consecutive residencies at the prestigious Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy. She performs solo, duo and with her full band.
