Normally taking over Quebec City for a weekend in June, packing concert halls, bars and outdoor stages with jazz artists from around the globe, this year’s Quebec Jazz Festival will be an online affair. Caffe Lena is serving as the livestream (and in-person!) stage for the festival’s American artists. Manuel Valera’s New Cuban Express, the legendary Sheila Jordan, and Saratoga’s own Chuck Lamb Trio will be streaming to a worldwide jazz audience from our stage.
Whether singing well-known standards or original material, jazz legend Sheila Jordan is a radiantly joyful singer who, at the age of 92, remains innovative and passionate. She is a superb scatter who can improvise lyrics and just as easily reach the emotional depths of a ballad. Jordan has performed and collaborated with all the great jazz artists of the last 50 years. Her career has taken her all over the world, and in 2012, she received one of the highest honors in jazz: she became an National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master.
“Her ballad performances are simply beyond the emotional and expressive capabilities of most other vocalists. “- NY Times
