Star of Broadway & the Metropolitan Opera, VHO Founding Troupe member Janinah Burnett brings her band of NYC all-stars to C'ville for one extraordinary night only. This multiple-Grammy-winning team of jazz's most in-demand artists present a program that breaks fresh ground and transcends parameters in marrying jazz & opera, in what Ms. Burnett has coined "Clazz".
Inspired by her father - legendary jazz drummer Carl Burnett - and the supportive words of her mother Imani Constance (“you can’t be another butterfly, you have to love the color of your butterfly”), Janinah explores the boundless musical elements of her life & career in this deeply personal performance.
Grab a drink and hit the dance floor, or sit back in a booth with a delicious Southern bite, to bask in an unforgettable Saturday night that will transport you to the great jazz clubs of the past.
In her own words:
Clazz is authentic, Clazz is freedom, Clazz builds bridges, Clazz is now, Clazz is in session. ~JB
