Join us for an evening with Abby and her jazz quartet playing their favorite jazz tunes, and featuring special guests Madeline Waters and Jayne Mazzone, joining in harmony for sirenous song on tunes you'll recognize, stylized in an entirely new way! Enjoy the swinging, sophisticated works of Cole Porter, the smooth bossa nova of Jobim, and the mood-capturing classics of DC's own Duke Ellington -- as well as a selection of original tunes, and jazzified covers of pop classics, from the Beatles to Beyonce!
Abby is fresh off playing DC JazzFest this past year, and she released an original CD in 2016, "Play Along," available on iTunes, Amazon and in disc form. Her music has been featured on NPR's "Capital Soundtrack," TV DCW50's "Opening Acts," and on "The Soundline" at 96.7 WERA -- and has been covered several times by "Brightest Young Things."
Abby performs regularly at DC's top jazz clubs, including Twins Jazz and Columbia Station, and headlines such events as the Intergalactic Speakeasy. She has performed at venues ranging from the DC National Mall to the New Orleans Superdome, from Pittsburgh's Carnegie Hall to the radio airwaves of Burning Man.
Abby's melodious voice flows from the sultry blues to bell tones, tugging on her audience's heart strings, as her rhythmic song choices and creative interpretations keep toes a-tappin' in the aisles!
