February Jazz Muse Concert Series presents
“Moonlight Becomes You: Songs of Jimmy Van Heusen”
Jimmy Van Heusen endures as one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. His unforgettable songs, which garnered many Emmy and Academy awards, are celebrated as today's jazz standards.
The Janis Mann Trio reunites Janis with Jeff Colella on piano and Larry Koonse on guitar, fresh from their outstanding trio concert for the Santa Barbara Jazz Society in January.
SBJS Concert Review by board member Sandy Cummings:
"Last Sunday, I was witness again to an artist who knows her craft as well as any I have heard or seen in my lifetime.
From the first note to the last she puts herself into every song while maintaining total contact with the audience, which was rapt and silent, so as not to miss a single note.
Janis selected her accompanists well. Jeff Colella, piano, and Larry Koonse, guitar, are virtuosos in their own right. They played with Janis’ dynamics perfectly and soloed with great artistry."
You don't want to miss this exciting trio performing such a memorable repertoire of songs.
