Sarah McKenzie – Australian Vocalist, Pianist, Composer
February 25, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$20
At age 27, Melbourne native Sarah McKenzie is a rising international jazz star. Her 2011 debut album, Don’t Tempt Me, a collection of jazz classics, originals, and even a Bossa nova arrangement of the Elvis Presley hit “Love me Tender”, was nominated for an ARIA award, the Australian version of the Grammy. Her second album, Close Your Eyes, won the ARIA award for Best Jazz Album 2012.
A musician with an unusually brad skill set – pianist, vocalist, composer, and arranger, her performances are an earthy, bluesy mix of straight ahead jazz standards, original pieces, and fresh unusual renditions of jazz classics.
