On Tuesday October 14th The Jazztet will be returning once again to The Front Room in Baker Center. For this performance we’ll be welcoming vocalist Angela Blair. Angela moved to Athens from Fort Lauderdale, Florida in November 2007 and is currently studying voice and music theory at the Athens Community Music School with Ivy Crockron and Greg Sigman. Her Grandfather, an opera major at the Julliard School of Music in New York City, was an avid fan of jazz greats such as Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald and exposed her to jazz at a young age. She was immediately drawn to the genre and is particularly influenced by Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Dinah Washington.
Edit: Angela was unable to join us for this performance due to illness. She may be rescheduled for sometime in 2009.
