Music: Melissa Morgan

6 pm | Fri, June 29, 2018
BP Grand Entrance

A semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk jazz vocal competition, Melissa Morgan has gone on to record a number of acclaimed CDs, featuring pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Joe Sanders, drummer Kevin Kanner, and trumpeter Christian Scott. Downbeat Magazine included her on their 2009 Rising Star List and JazzTimes has named her "audacious and decidedly salty". While you will always hear definitive influences from Nancy Wilson, Dinah Washington, and Billie Holliday, "Melissa isn't copying anybody" (London Evening Standard).

Part of the Jazz at LACMA series.
