Aretha Franklin is well known as The Queen of Soul, but in the 1960’s Ms. Franklin performed and recorded Jazz music on television, in clubs and concerts on the same bill with such greats as Thelonious MonkJohn ColtraneArt BlakeyCount Basie and even sang with the iconic Duke Ellington at The Newport Jazz Festival. She continued to use Jazz concepts in much of her music throughout her career.
 
She hits the sweet spot where jazz, blues and rhythm & blues meet.”
David Ritz, Author - “RESPECT: The Life Of Aretha Franklin

.

Desiree Roots is one of this region’s favorite performers with her “triple-threat” talent of acting, singing and dancing. She is revered for her powerful yet controlled, lush voice with its 3½ octave range; and, her ability to sing nearly every genre including Jazz, Gospel, classical and opera.  Desiree has shared the stage with Grammy Award winning guitarists, Buddy Guy and BB King; Jazz saxophonists Gerald Albright and Boney James; and, was a featured vocalist with The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra.

         

Sharon Rae North has quickly become one of the region’s most versatile singers, performing straight-ahead and contemporary styles for her audiences. She has performed at clubs and festivals throughout VA and the U.S., including Twins Jazz in Washington, D.C; Isaac Hayes’ Restaurant in Memphis, TN; and Durham (NC) Summer Music Festival.

International award-winning vocalist Eve Cornelious maintains a huge and loyal following throughout the East Coast and the world.  Eve, who grew up in Newport News, has performed and recorded with a huge list of Jazz stars, including Roy Hargrove, Ramsey Lewis, Norman Connors, Chucho Valdez, Jon Hendricks, Jeremy Pelt and many others.
