Singer Janice Anderson can be described as Ella rafting down a dizzy scat riff, Doris Day crooning praises for the joy of the everyday, and Astrud Gilberto whispering crooked tones through the wet Brazilian summer. A dedicated artist, she is in turn dedicated to the art of others, which led her to found Jazz Vespers in Santa Monica in 2003. Anderson has performed with such jazz notables as Clare Fischer, Bob Sheppard, Anthony Wilson, and Joe LaBarbera and at venues as diverse as the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, Pasadena Playboy Jazz Festival, and the legendary Hermosa Beach Lighthouse.
Presented as part of Jazz at LACMA, taking place every Friday through November. Check out the full schedule of upcoming concerts.
