Palace Theater Presents Vanessa Rubin with Don Braden--Waterbury

08/15/2014

100 East Main St., Waterbury, CT 06702. Phone: 203-346-2000.

Vanessa Rubin with Don Braden--08/15/14 at 7:00 PM , 08/15/14 at 9:00 PM. Vanessa Rubin is endowed with the kind of liquid phrasing and sheer wisdom that comes from depth of experience on the jazz performance campaign trail. Capable of employing the gamut of emotions, the mature Ms. Rubin can range from whisper to shout in the blink of an eye; from honey-laden ballads purring like a kitten, to up tempo swinging and scatting like a fluent saxophone. The list of great musicians who have graced her recordings and bandstands is quite impressive. Monty Alexander, Kenny Burrell, Etta Jones, Lewis Nash, Houston Person,  Don Braden, Toots Thielemans, and Grover Washington, Jr. are just a few of the masters to lend their skills to support her artistry. More recently she has completed auspicious global tours with Herbie Hancock, the Woody Herman Orchestra, and the Jazz Crusaders. This event is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Summer Jazz Series at the Poli Club. Season tickets for all four shows are available for $80 and include a reserved table. Call for further information.
