A2 Jazz Fest Kickoff: Janelle Reichman Quartet at A2 Jazz Fest at Ann Arbor District Library
The Janelle Reichman Quartet features Janelle on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Justin Walter on trumpet, Jeff Pedraz on bass and Nick Collins on drums. At this FREE performance, this all-star group will be playing selections from Janelle's fabulous album, Middleground, as well as some of her new compositions.
"Demonstrating a complete command of the sound and keys of her tenor … seems to defy logic and possibility in her speed, dexterity, and musicianship." Jazz Improv Magazine.
Clarinetist and saxophonist Janelle Reichman has performed with musical greats such as Doc Severinsen, Les Paul, Anne Hampton Callaway, Sherrie Maricle and DIVA, Dave Liebman, Donny McCaslin, and many others. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Janelle attended the Manhattan School of Music, quickly after which she embarked upon an exciting and diverse career in the New York City jazz scene. Janelle's debut solo album, Middleground, has received rave reviews. In 2016, Janelle was a featured clarinetist at Jazz @ Lincoln Center's production of Moonglow: The Magic of Benny Goodman. After ten years living in New York City, Janelle moved back to Ann Arbor last summer and couldn't be happier to be home.
This FREE concert will be on the library's lower level in the Multipurpose Room.
Note: Janelle will also be featured at the A2 Jazz Fest on September 9th.
Ann Arbor District Library, 343 S. Fifth Ave.
