Tony Campbell (U.S.)Wednesday, January 31, 2018 @ 8 p.m. - 10 p.m.
(2 hrs. approximate run time)
Join us for an evening of jazz with Tony Campbell and special guest vocalist Kenia Ashby!
Local Pittsburgher and Saxophonist Tony Campbell plays “straight ahead” jazz inspired by the legendary masters such as Coltrane, Parker, and Turrentine. In addition to performing regularly around town, Tony is actively involved with Jazz education.
Kenia Ashby is a talented performer, with great stage presence and a gift for engaging the audience. Her knowledge and passion for Brazilian music and art is evident in her stage performances, and she educates her audience with every song. Kenia is a Brazilian original, building a bridge to the next generation of Brazilian music fans by following in the footsteps of Astrud Gilberto, the closest I can think of in terms of Kenia’s ability to translate that wonderful sense of saudade and spice that her songs provide. One can’t listen to Kenia sing without appreciating her artistry. Her voice can suspend time, and it can lead you to think about nothing at all, even if just for a few minutes, and in this day that’s nothing short of miraculous.
