A multi-layered live performance featuring exquisite improvisations on jazz standards and new tunes, notching it up with further improvisations through voice and dance.
The Coolidge is proud to present jazz trumpet virtuoso Lew Soloff with a new musical ensemble, Evidence, in collaboration with LA-based dancer and choreographer Courtney Giannone.
Revered for his tremendous range and superior technical command, Soloff brings his signature fire, elegance, and lyricism to Evidence, which features two other prodigious talents: French-born bass player François Moutin, whose chops have been hailed as “practically unparalleled”, and vocalist and cellist Anne Sila. This brilliant 21-year-old just arrived from her native France and channels the best scat singing stars to thrill new audiences of 21st-century jazz.
Adding to the event’s spontaneous spirit, the musicians will improvise to a filmed dance piece (Spools) created by and featuring Courtney Giannone. Giannone will bring yet another layer of inventiveness when she takes the stage for a live dance performance, improvising to Evidence’s music.
Performing together for the first time, this gifted foursome creates a singular jazz event with texture, sound, movement, and joy. A not-to-be missed sensory feast!
Tickets: $20 general / $17 Members, students, and seniors.
