Philly Jazz Diva on the Rise
Philadelphia, PA – Noted jazz singer and actress Khadijah Renee and her trio will appear at LaRose Jazz Club on Sunday, August 16 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., celebrating the release of her new CD, “Sentimental Me.” Renee has graciously and generously offered to donate $5.00 off the $30.00 ticket price, which includes a copy of her new CD, to our region’s non-profit, Jazz Bridge. LaRose is located on 5531 Germantown Avenue, and dinner and cash bar will be available. For tickets and information, call 215-910-8902 or 484-844-7864 and/or visit http://www.khadijahrenee.com.
Khadijah Renee has an extensive background as a jazz singer, stylistically reminiscent of legendary jazz vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington and Nancy Wilson. Since the late 1980s, she’s appeared at most of the major spots in the tri-state area, which have included performances at the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival in Maryland and a number of shows at LaRose. This one-time member of the Delaware Council of Jazz Advocates recently graced the stage at the Delaware School of Music, where she performed “September Song” at a tribute to late trumpeter Clifford Brown. Renee is also a graduate of Philadelphia’s famed Freedom Theater and completed acting courses at Philadelphia’s Bushfire Theater. She has always been accompanied by our area’s finest musicians, and accompanying her at this LaRose performance are three of the best: pianist Dave Posmontier, bassist Madison Rast and drummer Bryon “Wookie” Landham.
Jazz Bridge, an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to assisting Greater Philadelphia Metro area jazz and blues musicians and vocalists in times of crisis, sponsors these neighborhood concerts throughout the region to keep the sound of Philadelphia alive.
