LIVE FOR ONE NIGHT - JAZZ SENSATION NNENNA FREELON
Six-time GRAMMY® Award-nominee Nnenna Freelon has earned a
well-deserved reputation as a compelling and captivating live performer.
Recently, Nnenna Freelon triumphed in two productions: first, with Opera
Superstar Jessye Norman and the Indie phenom band The Roots in composer Laura
Karpman’s undertaking of Langston Hughes’ “Ask Your Mama” at The Hollywood Bowl
and, second, in SRO-shows at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival with the Duke
Ellington-inspired “Dreaming The Duke” with classical star Harolyn Blackwell
and pop-jazz-crossover pianist Mike Garson. The versatile songstress quickly
followed that with notable turns with a featured song on TV’s # 1 cable hit Mad
Men and with The World Famous Count Basie Orchestra to celebrate their new Mack
Avenue recording on which she can be heard.
