Sheila Jordan with Cameron Brown, Eugene Uman and Friends

June 1, 2019           8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

This concert celebrates NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan in her 90th year. It serves as an expression of gratitude to Jordan for her loving and generous 20-plus year involvement in our community as a mentor and performer. VJC director, Eugene Uman usually performs on this date with his Convergence Project. This concert is a golden opportunity to join forces with one of the vocal legends of our time in its stead. We will also welcome Jordan's muse, bassist Cameron Brown, and other friends (TBA) to enhance the festivities.

In her autobiography "Jazz Child, a Portrait of Sheila Jordan," Jordan tells of how the legendary saxophonist Charlie Parker "gave me courage by telling me I was unique in my sound and that I had million-dollar ears." Her 1963 debut on Blue Note Records, Portrait of Sheila, is considered a jazz classic. Since then she has recorded over 22 albums as a leader and appeared as a guest soloist on hundreds of others. Along with the NEA Jazz Master Award, Jordan has received an IAJE Humanitarian Award, a Mary Lou Williams' Women in Jazz Lifetime of Service Award and many others. Sheila has taught thousands of students around the world, helping them to realize their potential, and encourages us all to savor and delight in the immensity and swinging depth of jazz music.  www.vtjazz.org
