April Jazz Musings...

March was filled with great music at Cezannes in Houston, The Elephant Room in Austin and a beautiful and successful fund raising concert for Hospice in Austin. On March 27th I felt very honored to be singing at the Creative Opportunity Jazz Orchestra Tribute at Antones, with Susanna Sharpe, John Mills, Russ Scanlon, Pat Harris, Rob Kazenel to name only a few of the illustrious jazz artists who came together to honor the phenomenal late Tina Marsh and her legacy. Tina holds a very special place in all of our hearts. Thank you to the Austin Jazz Society.

Aside from exciting plans getting firmed up for this summers Casa Karen Concerts in our new renovated space (schedule t.b.a.) I am very much looking forward to playing once again with the remarkable Paul Unger at Scat Jazz Lounge in Forth Worth.

Thursday April 28th
Scat Jazz Lounge

111 W 4th St # 11
Fort Worth, TX 76102-3915
(817) 870-9100

I will be singing with George Oldziey piano, Paul Unger bass, Dennis Durick drums and Dave Monsch sax! It's a beautiful venue and we hope you can make it out.

I'm extremely jazzed (pun intended) about the recent workshops I've been leading in Houston and Austin and the plans to expand these concepts into a larger scaled community outreach program for young artists. Keep your eye on this blog and I'll keep you updated on events.

Thanks for checking out my blog!

All the Best,
