Women in Jazz Association presents September Song featuring Sy Smith, Mark Whitfield, & Selina Albright
This blend of jazz, neo-soul and jazz funk will be an evening to remember. Soaring vocals and rhythmic guitar will entertain and delight as these impressive musicians blend traditional and new sounds.
Sy Smith is long renowned as the “Queen of Underground Soul” for her edgy, progressive mix of funk, neo-soul and R&B, lyrical dexterity, her vocal whimsy (often colored with a very distinctive rhythmic swing that’s all her own) and her ability to spin a story like few others in soul music.
Guitarist Mark Whitfield has collaborated with legendary artists including Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Herbie Hancock, Carmen McRae, Gladys Knight, and more.
With a last name associated with musical excellence, Selina Albright is a soulful singer-songwriter with versatility that comes from years of listening to many origins and languages of music.
