Maureen Kennedy @ Frankie’s

June 1 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$17.5

Maureen has cultivated an extensive repertoire of memorable standards and rediscovered gems that compliment her very personal sound. Kennedy developed her love for jazz in her early twenties when she studied for six years with Canadian flugelhorn and trumpet player Fred Stone. The purity of her sound and her restrained use of vibrato developed under his tutelage.

“Too often we heap praise on an artist. In the case of Maureen Kennedy, it is not often enough. Ethereal, soulful and a singular voice that is immediate in its impact and timeless in its breadth. Maureen Kennedy is that rarest of things, a jazz singer.” Ralph Benmergui, Canadian television and radio personality, formerly with the CBC and Jazz FM 91.1.

With Sharon Minemoto piano, Cory Weeds tenor saxophone, John Lee bass, and Craig Scott drums.
