Celebrate Thelonious Monk's Birthday with the Helen Sung Quintet

Saturday, October 10

One Show at 7:30

An award-winning classical pianist before jazz intervened "in the form of a Tommy Flanagan solo," Houston, TX, native Helen Sung went on to graduate from the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance and win the Kennedy Center's Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition.

Since establishing herself in New York City, she has worked with such luminaries as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Steve Turre, the legendary Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter; and, in addition to her own band, can currently be seen with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band & Dynasty Band, the T.S.Monk Group, and Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project.

With five first-rate albums to her credit, Anthem For A New Day, is her debut on Concord Records. An exciting step forward in Sung's evolution, Anthem displays a modern artistry and music that swings with a funky intellect while seamlessly integrating her jazz &anp; classical worlds. A bright future is certainly in store for this exciting artist whom Wynton Marsalis named as one of his 'Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch!'

Internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg celebrates the release of EEG-FONNESBAEK, her new duo CD with celebrated bassist Thomas Fonnesbaek.

Sinne Eeg's distinctive vocals have earned her a loyal and rapidly growing fan base in her native country of Denmark and around the world. Considered the preeminent jazz vocalist in Scandinavia, Sinne has already made her mark in Japan, China, and throughout Europe with her exquisite live performances and award-winning studio recordings.

Although she has released seven albums to wide acclaim in Europe and Japan, the depth and beauty of Sinne's artistry has largely been a secret here in the U.S. until her recent live performances, where she has mesmerized audiences on her tours throughout the West Coast and Southwest. Now, with the release of EEG FONNESBAEK, her first CD to be introduced to a wide U.S. audience, jazz lovers throughout North America will be able to experience one of the finest jazz vocalists to come along since Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McRae.

"Eeg's soulful delivery, flawless pitch, exceptional diction, and impressive scat stand in strong relief to the sole accompaniment of Thomas Fonnesbaek's bass."

"This is an outstanding album, jazz singing at its very best and strongly recommended to all who love to hear good songs sung well. Sinne's vocal sound is rich, fluid and nowhere is there any hint that she is not singing in her own language."
Bruce Crowther, JAZZ MOSTLY

"Her name is Sinne Eeg, and she can sing a standard like it's a holy experience."
Carol Banks Weber, AXS
