Charenee Wade: Betty Carter at 90

With vocalist Charenee Wade, alto saxophonist Bruce Williams, pianist Marc Cary, bassist Paul Beaudry, and drummer Winard Harper.

“Ms. Wade is a jazz singer of commanding skill, an heir to the legacies of Betty Carter and Carmen McRae.” – The New York Times

Betty Carter blazed her own trail as one of the most original jazz vocalists of our time. Her flawless phrasing, unpredictability, and signature glissando placed her in a league of her own as a true “musician’s singer.” She was also one of jazz’s foremost mentors, and the elite “Jazz Ahead” program that she founded and led was a life-changing opportunity for rising star musicians—including tonight’s headlining vocalist, Charenee Wade. In celebration of what would have been Carter’s 90th birthday, Wade will interpret the music of one of her personal idols. Wade is a gifted interpreter, as demonstrated in her eclectic tributes to Gil Scott-Heron, Brian Jackson, and, on the occasion of her 85th, Ms. Carter. Experience the living legacy of Betty Carter embodied by Charenee Wade and her band.
