Aug 10, Saturday - 5pm
Montgomery Theater Stage

British-born jazz vocalist and bassist Janet Evra has released four critically-acclaimed records, and her most recent single, “Almost True,” features seven-time Grammy Award winner Randy Brecker and was selected for Spotify’s Vocal Jazz and Top Vocal Jazz 2023 playlists. At Summer Fest she’ll feature sparkling new material from her latest release, Meet Me in Paris.

Evra has also collaborated with noted jazz artists Taylor Eigsti, Jeff Coffin, Sara Gazarek, Diego Figueiredo, Eric Marienthal, Andrea Motis, Dave Weckl, Wycliffe Gordon and Chad LB, among others.  She has toured the United States and Europe, with recent international festival appearances at the Brecon Jazz Festival in Wales, the Linna Jazz Festival in Finland and the Deva Jazz Festival in Romania.  

Evra has four albums to her credit as a bandleader. Meet Me in Paris underscores her international stature and with the album she joins the ranks of celebrated interpreters like Stacey Kent and Melody Gardot in paying homage to the tradition of French chansons and their effect on the evolution of jazz.
