“…She may well be the best young straight-ahead jazz singer of her generation.” – The Wall Street Journal
A rapidly rising star and Jazz at Lincoln Center regular, Brianna Thomas headlines Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola to celebrate the release of her debut CD. Supported by a band straight out of most musicians’ dreams, every aspect of this performance is sure to make jaws drop. Thomas’ music, always swinging hard, includes well-received originals and reinterpretations of great composers, both within and outside of jazz. That she holds her own as a soloist alongside such a band speaks volumes of her raw talent and dedication to her craft, and we could not be more excited to host her debut CD release show. Come join the celebration!
