To Sassy with Love: A Salute to Sarah Vaughan with Camille Thurman and Charenee Wade

With vocalist/saxophonist Camille Thurman, vocalist Charenee Wade, pianist James Hurt, bassist Buster Williams, drummer Darrell Green, and trumpeters Marcus Printup (9/13 only) and Freddie Hendrix (9/14 only)

The multitalented Camille Thurman is an award-winning composer, formidable saxophonist, and second-place winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan Vocal Competition. She has performed with artists ranging from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Dr. Billy Taylor, George Coleman, Lew Tabackin, and George Benson to Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys, and Missy Elliot. Co-headlining the evening with her is vocalist extraordinaire Charenee Wade, who is a regular highlight of the annual festival and someone who works exceptionally well with other singers. She’s also a gifted interpreter, as recently demonstrated in her tribute to Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson. As practically demanded in a “salute to Sarah Vaughan,” both vocalists tonight will have ample opportunity to show off their chops, but they can also be counted on to highlight their own distinctive musical voices throughout the performance.

This event is part of our 8th annual Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival, showcasing some of the top rising stars of jazz alongside some of the artists who have contributed to making this art form what it is today. The Coca-Cola Generations in Jazz Festival runs from September 1–October 1, 2017. View the full line-up here.
