An Exciting Evening of Jazz Excellence: Nancy Kelly to Launch Jazz at Richardson Lounge Series

Nancy Kelly to Perform with Stellar Trio

Renowned jazz vocalist Nancy Kelly will inaugurate the Jazz at Richardson Lounge Series with a performance on Friday, August 16th, at 7:30 pm. Known for her timeless swinging style and masterful vocal delivery, Kelly transports audiences to an era where jazz was the purest expression of raw emotion.

Hailing from Rochester, New York, Kelly began her musical journey at the age of four, studying piano, clarinet, and voice at the esteemed Eastman School of Music. Over her five-decade career, she has perfected a swing/bop style that has captivated audiences from Singapore to Switzerland. Her performances are a masterclass in phrasing, style, and swing, earning her two “Best Female Jazz Vocalist” titles in the Down Beat Readers’ Poll.

A staple of New York City’s jazz circuit, Kelly has graced renowned venues such as The Blue Note and Birdland. With six critically acclaimed albums, including the chart-topping “Live Jazz” and the widely praised “Remembering Mark Murphy,” Kelly continues to push the boundaries of jazz with her soulful sound and unwavering commitment to the art form.

Joining Nancy Kelly for this special evening will be saxophone great Jerry Weldon (from the Harry Connick, Jr. Big Band), acclaimed organist Dino Losito, and native Buffalonian drummer Carmen Intorre, Jr. (longtime drummer for legendary jazz guitarist Pat Martino).
