This Thursday, May 16, The Jazz Gallery welcomes vocalist Arta Jēkabsone back to our stage for two sets. Having just finished her undergraduate studies at The New School, Jēkabsone will present a new series of compositions entitled My Suite. Reflections. In a Walt Whitman-esque turn, this work aims to articulate outward the inner multiplicities of Jēkabsone’s personality.
This self-reflection has found Jēkabsone utilizing a larger compositional palette. In addition to her working band of pianist Theo Walentiny, guitarist Lucas Kadish, bassist Hwansu Kang, and drummer Connor Parks, Jēkabsone will be joined in this performance by a string quartet, adding a layer of lushness to her bright and lyrical material. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a burgeoning vocalist and composer stretch her craft in new directions.
Arta Jēkabsone presents My Suite. Reflections. at The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, May 16, 2019. The group features Ms. Jēkabsone on vocals, Theo Walentiny on piano, Lucas Kadish on guitar, Hwansu Kang on bass, Connor Parks on drums, Zosha Warpeha and Uta Habbig on violin, Kate Barmotina on viola, and Julie Kim on cello. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members), $20 reserved cabaret seating ($10 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
