LET FREEDOM SING: VOICES OF THE WOMEN OF JAZZ

It is always a treat bringing these dynamic Jazz vocalists together for some real jazz. Composers themselves, they will be bringing to life the great work of Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone, Cassandra Wilson, Carmen Lundy, Randy Crawford, and more!  Only at An die Musik can you hear the soulful sounds of this Philly-DC connection live-streaming this Saturday evening during Jazz Appreciation Month!

ELLA GAHNT is a Philly-based Jazz vocalist who has been dubbed “Philly’s Class Act” by local media and fans. She has “wowed” audiences at major venues and Jazz Festivals in the area for many years, and is the featured vocalist performing regularly with her own trio, with the Eric Mintel Quartet, The Clef Club Community Jazz Big Band, with The Philly/AC Connection, and with the 4-member vocal collective Sistahs Attune. On March 28, 2019, Ella was honored by the City of Philadelphia Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy at City Hall where she became a recipient of the “2019 Philly Celebrates Jazz Award.” Ella’s 3 CDs – “Immaculate Union,” “By Request” and her latest CD “Third Stage of Elegance” are in rotation on WRTI-FM. “Third Stage of Elegance” showcases her songwriting abilities.
