Lila Ammons Jazz Group

January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $10

Lila Ammons is a versatile and engaging singer who has forged a path in music that honors tradition and her own expressive impulses. Beginning her vocal career in opera houses and concert halls, she later returned to her roots in jazz and the classic blues tradition. For the past several years she has gained popular and critical acclaim touring Europe and Brazil with German pianist Axel Zwingenberger, and as featured vocalist with the ABC&D of Boogie Woogie Quartet with Zwingenberger and Charlie Watts.

Ammons has won fans of jazz and bossa to classic blues performing at some of the Midwest’s and Europe’s largest Blues, Boogie Woogie, and Jazz Fests. For the past two years, Ammons has primarily remained Stateside to focus on her jazz act and her upcoming CD project, “Genealogy” – a celebration of the heritage of jazz and her own family heritage. Her ensemble, The Lila Ammons Jazz Group, is actively performing in her home-base of the Twin Cities. Through recordings and live performances alike, Ammons continues to attract new audiences with her nuanced vocal jazz narratives, a respect for jazz idioms, traditional blues and an unpredictability that delights.
