FRI SEPT 23 | Bria Skonberg Quartet
September 23, 2022 07:00 PM until September 23, 2022 11:00 PM
"Ms. Skonberg has become the shining hope of hot jazz, on the strength of a clarion trumpet style indebted to Louis Armstrong, a smooth purr of a singing voice inspired by Anita O'Day and the wholesome glow of youth" - Nate Chinen, NY Times
Born in British Columbia, Canada and now residing in New York City, Bria has been a featured artist at hundreds of festivals and stages the world over, including New Orleans Jazz & Heritage, Kobe, Monterey, Breda, Newport and Montreal Jazz Festivals. Described as “one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation” (Wall Street Journal), she has performed with Jon Batiste, Wycliffe Gordon, Stephane Wrembel, Steven Bernstein, U2 & Sun Ra Arkestra, The American Pops and Vancouver Symphony Orchestras, The Blacksmiths “We Insist” Band, and once sang the “Star Spangled Banner” at Madison Square Garden for a NY Rangers game. The “shining hope of hot jazz” (NY Times) has been at the forefront of a revival of classic American music as both a performer and educator.
"Bria Skonberg looks like a Scandinavian angel, plays trumpet like a red hot devil, and sings like a dream. Her new album, "So Is the Day" reveals that she's also a very capable bandleader and composer."— Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
