.Giveaway: Tickets to Charenee Wade at Kuumbwa


Jazz and soul vocalist, composer and educator Charenee Wade has some nice feathers in her musical cap: she was a participant in Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead program, she was first runner-up in the Thelonious Monk International Vocal Competition, she was selected for the Dianne Reeves Young Artist Workshop, and she’s a regular at New York hotspots Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, Smalls, and the Zinc Bar. Known for her innovative arrangements and what has been described as “singular and assertive vocal textures,” Wade is a standout in the genre. Her most recent offering is a tribute to the music of Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson.
