Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. Summer Concerts with vocalist Khadijah Renee
August 16 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PMFree
Jazz Bridge in partnership with Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. continues the Summer Concert Series in the park with vocalist Khadijah Renee and her band. They will be performing at Granahan Playground, 6500 Callowhill St., Philadelphia PA 19151. These concerts are free and are from 6-7:30 pm. Khadijah “Renee” is a Jazz Songstress in the vein of the Great Ladies of Jazz. Her resonant tones remind you of the ladies who paved their way through the male dominated syncopated instrumental ingenious sounds of Be-Bop & Classical Jazz from as early as the 1950′s. If you close your eyes while listening to her, you may hear reminiscent echoes of Sarah, Ella, Billie, Nancy, Dinah and Gloria.
