Since Father’s day of last year, there has been a continuous buzz around Nassau. On that day, June 16th, 2013, a large and excited audience experienced the first ever full Jazz concert of its kind…”Jazz In Bloom” (JIB). Seasoned Jazz enthusiasts and new converts alike witnessed the young and talented Bahamian Jazz Vocalist, Anuschka Wright, officially presenting herself to the public as a solo artist for the first time.
Now this Father’s Day, June 15th, 2014, with a full year of music studies at Concordia University and exposure to the Jazz culture of Montreal behind her, Anuschka presents “Jazz In Bloom… Ignited”! The Jazz spark was lit last year and now, by request of an excited audience and disappointed non-attendees, the second concert is here! Prepare for an exhilarating night of music as this show will be a fitting sequel to the last; it is definitely a different show and you will not want to miss it.
JIB Ignited turns up the heat with a lineup of all female vocalists. Joining Anuschka, there’s the lovely Angel Reckley; vibrant and expressive in her delivery. Angel’s sure to light the stage with her performance. And then there’s Naomi Taylor, a name known for Jazz… she will bring her smooth and sultry vocal styling to the concert stage with depth. As for the Jazz In Bloom core band, there’s Mr. Jazz himself, the talented Adrian D’Aguilar on upright bass, Tina Raymond, LA Jazz drummer back for a second year and newcomer to the band, pianist Dennis Hamm, also out of LA. And back to thrill, on saxophone, is Bahamian great, Ralph Munnings.
