May 15 - Saxophonist/Composer/Vocalist - Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly has the dubious distinction of being the youngest ever named for three consecutive years in the annual Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll, as one of the Alto Saxophone Rising Stars, At the tender age of 22, Grace has already graced the stage and/or recorded with a well distinguished group of internationally renouned artists such as Phil Woods, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsallis, Esperanza Spalding, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Monty Alexander, Rufus Reid, and the list goes on and on.
This will be my third interview with this talented young lady; and, well, you know what they say, "three's the charm." Join me as Grace will be sharing some exciting news and updates you just do not want to miss.
Meet Grace Kelly..When it comes to singer/ saxophonist/ composer/ lyricist/ arranger/ producer/ educator Grace Kelly, people seem to be divided into two groups: those who marvel at her proficiency, creativity and ever-accelerating growth, and those who have yet to encounter the 21-year-old wunderkind. The ranks of the former category are growing by the day. Trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis was so impressed with Kelly’s three-night stand as guest of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra that he invited her to join the ensemble at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater in Washington, D.C. for Barack Obama's Inauguration Celebration. Harry Connick, Jr. heard Kelly in a master class on a December afternoon and brought her on stage to sit in with his band that night. Since then, Kelly has been voted "Best Jazz Act” in Boston four consecutive years in the FNX/Phoenix Best Music Poll, and then voted Best National Jazz Act in 2012. She has received the ASCAP Foundation’s Young Jazz Composers Award in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013 and won "Jazz Artist of the Year” at the Boston Music Awards in both 2008 and 2010. The 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Downbeat Critics Poll added to her the list naming her one of the "Alto Saxophone Rising Stars”, the youngest artist ever to be named to the music poll.
Today on The Ron Kelly Show, NBA players wearing "I can't breathe" t-shirts. The reaction falls along racial lines plus the GOP attempts to remove the Wall Street regulations and return us to pre-2008 risks of another collapse and the police shooting of a 12 year old boy. Should the police have known better? Today with "the unflappable one" Lamont Gates plus everything else you need to know about your world on The Ron Kelly Show.
