Award-winning vocalist and L.A. favorite Janis Mann returns to the prestigious Santa Barbara Jazz Society series at SOhO on Sunday, July 10 from 1 to 4pm with a trio of renowned musicians: Bill Cunliffe on piano, Chris Colangelo on bass, and Dick Weller on drums. This exceptional band thrills audiences with a broad repertoire of soul-stirring ballads, hard swinging modern jazz, sensuous latin tunes, and spirited blues, all presented with Janis's own deft improvisational twist. Beyond Janis's vocal quality is imaginative delivery and interpretation that comes from experience in life as well as performance. The way she weighs and colors the lyrics in her singing place her in rare company. Janis’s latest recording with pianist Kenny Werner, released in 2021, was a Downbeat Magazine Editors Pick and received much critical acclaim and recognition. She has performed with Diane Schuur, Roy Haynes, Kenny Werner, Laurence Hobgood, Terrell Stafford, Dave Frishberg, Jack Sheldon, John Clayton, Eric Reed, the Caribbean Jazz Project, Roberta Gambarini, and many other jazz celebrities in addition to her own legendary shows. Her music appears in films and her recordings are a radio and streaming mainstay. JazzTimes Magazine says, “Mann is not only one of the most skilled vocalists around, but one of the most alluring as well.” You won’t want to miss this one!
Admission to the event is $25 for Jazz Society members, $10 for professional jazz musicians and singers and full time students, and $35 for non-members. Doors open at 12:30 and seating is limited, so plan to arrive early.
