4pm – Zeena Quinn Jazz
Sunday, June 30 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Zeena Quinn grew up in a family of jazz musicians and the roots of Detroit City. She is known for her straightforward sound, emotional content of phrasing, sense of rhythm and dynamics, and, innovative arrangements of jazz standards. She pays homage and adds intellectual coolness, as well as, edginess with the vocal influences of Anita O’Day, Sarah Vaughn, Jeanne Lee, Annie Ross, Ruth Brown, and Carmen McRae. Zeena is an elegant singer whose voice and music choices are also inspired by the golden age of jazz’s simple, yet, raw compositions/lyrics of Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, and Jon Hendricks.
Ms. Quinn has shared the stage with Mel Martin All Star Big Band, Cab Calloway Orchestra (Calloway Brooks), Noel Jewkes, Marcos Silva, and opened with Chalo Eduardo Brazilian Band (Sergio Mendes) for New Orleans Jazz Festival’s John Lee Hooker.
