Los Angeles based jazz vocalist (and Akron, OH native), Gretje Angell, returns to the Rubber City for a hometown show at BLU Jazz+ with her West Coast duo!
Bringing a touch of artistic elegance to music, Dori and Gretje tap in to the swingin’ fun of The Great American Songbook, alongside beautiful Bossa Nova grooves. Charming, intimate, and exciting, they create magic on stage.
Gretje channels the influence of jazz legends Anita O’Day, Carmen McRae, & Ella Fitzgerald with her own sweet style. She has quickly skyrocketed to become one of LA’s freshest and most exciting voices in jazz, and always delivers a not-to-be missed performance!
Complimenting her with his alluring guitar playing is Dori Amarilio, an award-winning composer, producer, & music director. Throughout his career, Dori has had the great pleasure of working with Airto and Flora Purim, Mike Stoller, Moacir Santos, Jeff Hamilton, Earl Palmer, Wayne Shorter, & Mitchell Forman, among many others. He is truly one of the most sought-after and brilliant musicians in his class.
Join us for a very special Tuesday night presentation as we welcome this groovin’ & swingin’ group in their BLU debut! Our full menu will be served before and during the show, so make your plans now to make a night of it. This show is expected to sell out – get your tickets today!
