Seven Celebrated Jazz Artists On One Stage
An all-star jazz outfit that just happens to be all-female, Artemis is comprised of seven stunningly talented musicians from Canada, Chile, Israel, America, France and Japan. Regularly seen and heard leading their own bands, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant, music director & pianist Renee Rosnes, clarinetist Anat Cohen, tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana, trumpet player Ingrid Jensen, bassist Noriko Ueda and drummer Allison Miller come together for a special one-night-only performance at the historic Carnegie Hall. The evening's program includes original material as well as fresh interpretations of jazz classics by Thelonius Monk, Billie Holiday, The Beatles and many more!
Widely regarded as one of the finest pianists and composers of her generation, Canadian muso Renee Rosnes leads this unique ensemble with an sense of flair and an ear for eclectic programming. After spending much of the 80s touring and performing with the likes of Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, J.J. Johnson, Dizzy Gillespie and Dave Holland amongst others, Rosnes' role as a band leader blossomed in 1990 with her debut self-titled release on jazz label Blue Note. Eight albums and several Juno and National Jazz awards later, she continues to blaze trails with a dynamic style and powerful key touch.
