Northampton Jazz Workshop Featuring vocalist Kristen Lee Sergeant

WHAT: Northampton Jazz Workshop Featuring vocalist Kristen Lee Sergeant
WHERE: City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA.
WHEN: Tuesday October 8th, 7:30pm followed immediately by the jam session until 10:30

Kristen Lee Sergeant is a jazz vocalist and composer of effervescent energy, musical intensity and dramatic flair. DownBeat Magazine has given both her albums the distinction of being an Editor’s Pick, citing how she “crafts moments of engaging drama, whether she’s seductively sliding into a note with a near-whisper, delivering a breathy revelation or belting out a lyric with full-throated muscularity.” She commits to telling a story in her music and performance style, while sparking spontaneous sonic conversation with her fellow musicians. Such commitment, and its results, captivate her audiences, whether in live performance or listening to her recordings.

The concert set starts at 7:30, followed immediately by the jam session until 10:30. $5 per person room charge for the concert set and donations to the band gratefully accepted. City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA. 413-584-4830
