Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic: Fantastic women

Three female jazz musicians – and each fantastic in her own way: Estonian singer Kadri Voorand is considered a rising star of the scene in her home country. She develops her both meditative and energetic tonal language from the skilful mix of folk, classical music and jazz. Icelander Anna Gréta is inspired by Nordic nature and the melancholy of her homeland to write reflective, mystical songs. A completely different sound comes from the US-American Rhoda Scott, the “Grande Dame of the Hammond organ”. Discovered by the legendary Count Basie, her music is in the tradition of hard bop, gospel and soul.

Due to illness, Fabia Mantwill unfortunately had to cancel her participation in this concert.
