Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 6, 2017
Jazz 88.3 is so proud to support the Athenaeum's 2017-2018 season! Next Up: Grammy-nominated vocalist Rene Marie & Experiment In Truth (with John Chin, piano; Elias Bailey, bass; and Quentin Baxter, Jr., drums) happening Wednesday, November 15th at TSRI at 7:30PM. In a span of two decades, 11 recordings and countless stage performances, vocalist René Marie has cemented her reputation as not only a singer but also a composer, arranger, theatrical performer and teacher. Guided and tempered by powerful life lessons and rooted in jazz traditions laid down by Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and other leading ladies of past generations, she borrows various elements of folk, R&B and even classical and country to create a captivating hybrid style. Her body of work is musical, but it’s more than just music. It’s an exploration of the bright and dark corners of the human experience, and an affirmation of the power of the human spirit.
