About this Event

Rising jazz star Alexis Morrast returns to Clement's with her trio led by James Austin, Jr on piano, Ben Rubens on bass, and Jeremy Warren on drums. She is joined by special guest Jalin Shiver on sax.

This Newark native began singing in church at the age of three, leading to her first solo in the adult choir at seven. Since that time Alexis has performed at the U.S. OPEN, Delta's, Central Jersey Jazz Festivals, Rutgers Garden Summer Solstice Jazz & Wine, South Jazz Kitchen and Warmdaddy's in Philly, the world renowned APOLLO THEATRE emerging as Two Time Amateur Night Winner and later returning as their Special Guest with an invite to perform during Harlem Week Festival. In February 2017 she was back on the APOLLO stage and named the Winner of the nationally televised FOXTV at the APOLLO hosted by Steve Harvey.

She has wowed audiences at the Kennedy Center, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola with jazz legend Barry Harris, in Cape Town South Africa, at the John Coltrane Jazz & Blues International Festival, and most recently at the 20th anniversary of NJPAC.
