16 July Monday, 21:00, Cemil Topuzlu Open Air Theatre
A perfect night of jazz at the Open Air Theatre! Beginning with Lyambiko, a silky voice singing jazz standards and original compositions, the night will continue with the young genius of bass, vocalist and composer Esperanza Spalding.
Hailed as "the most promising vocalist jazz has seen in a long, long time" in the Boston Globe in 2003, Lyambiko was awarded the Echo Jazz 2011 Award as "Female singer of the year - national". Continuing the night’s delight will be Esperanza Spalding, one of the biggest breakout stars of 2011, who received the 2011 Grammy for Best New Artist, the first time a jazz musician had won the award.
Lyambiko will be accompanied by Marque Lowenthal (piano), Robin Draganic (bass), and Heinrich Koebberling (drums) while Spalding will be performing with her 12-piece band.
