Exploring the Timeless Compositions of Tadd Dameron in a Captivating New Light
Join us for a unique Art of Jazz Series musical experience as the timeless compositions of jazz legend Tadd Dameron are explored in a fresh and captivating way. The extraordinary quintet and acclaimed program- Gary Smulyan: Tadd’s All, Folks featuring Anaïs Reno – will breathe new life into Dameron’s music, with a special focus on his often-overlooked vocal compositions.
While Dameron was primarily celebrated as a composer and arranger, this collection showcases the entrancing vocal performances of Anaïs Reno, bringing out the lyrical brilliance of his legacy. The songs feature captivating lyrics by Irving Reid, Bernie Hanighen, and Jack Reynolds, perfectly complementing Dameron’s modern musical language.

Rising Star jazz vocalist Anaïs Reno takes center stage to effortlessly deliver the emotional depth and nuance of each song.
