Carmen McRae Tribute:
Luke Malewicz / Abigail Riccards Quintet
Wednesday, October 6th – 7:30PM
Carmen McRae is considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century and is remembered for her behind-the-beat phrasing and ironic interpretation of lyrics. Her career spanned over five decades and she worked with everyone from Duke Ellington, to Count Basie and Cal Tjader.
Luke Malewicz has been a force in the Chicago jazz community since his move in 2009. A native of Nowa Sol, Poland, Luke continues at the forefront of today’s emerging jazz trombonists.
Abigail Riccards has quickly established herself as one of the rising vocalists on the scene. She has garnered much attention from the jazz community for her effortless swing, heartbreaking tone, and personalized approach to lyrics.
Together Luke and Abby have performed throughout Chicago and NYC in some of the most iconic jazz venues including the Green Mill, Andy’s Jazz Club, The Jazz Showcase, Carnegie Hall, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola and the Village Vanguard.
