The Marianne Solivan Big Band: An Evening of Holiday Swing LIVE at The Rooster!

December 13, 2014

holiday swingThis is going to be GOOOOOD! Get yourself over to Red Rooster Harlem. Wander down the stairs to the luxurious Ginny’s Supper Club and prepare yourself for a BIG BAND the likes of which you may not see again!

Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt has called her“the modern-day paradigm to which all singers should aspire.” It is no coincidence that the 2009 Jazzmobile Vocal Competition finalist has graced recital halls, jam sessions and club stages with such noted musicians as Roy Hargrove, Steve Lacy, Jeremy Pelt, Ray Gallon (Ron Carter, Lionel Hampton, T.S. Monk), Ugonna Ukegwo (Tom Harrell, Jacky Terrason) and Jane Monheit’s sidemen Neal Minor and Michael Kanan.

Marianne Solivan was singing pop when she entered Berklee College of Music, but quickly decided she wanted to learn this music called jazz. Earning a dual degree in Music Performance and Education, she taught music for a year before entering the New England Conservatory and earning a Master’s degree in Jazz Studies. Armed with two prestigious degrees and formidable talent, Solivan moved back to the city of her birth in 2007, placing in the Jazzmobile Vocal Competition, appearing as the only featured vocalist on clarinetist Darryl Harper’s The C3 project recording, Stories in Real Time, and touring France as the lead vocalist in an innovative staging of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

Solivan is as likely to pop up at jazz institution Smalls Jazz Club with a full band as she is an intimate restaurant with only a piano accompanist. Regardless, jazz lovers and musicians alike are captivated by her sound and her style. Not all are able to articulate what attracts them as well as Pelt. Ultimately, they just dig it.

We dig it too, which is why we are happy to present a very special Holiday Program with the fabulous Ms. Solivan and her 12-piece Big Band! This will be a wonderful evening of merriment and cheer. Get your tickets today!
