Saturday, Aug. 19, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— Drawing from the vast catalog of jazz classics of the 20th century, Cooie’s Jazz Ensemble lures you deep into the music. Cooie Defrancesco reaches the heart of a lyric and brings her own special blend of pathos and humor. She will perform Aug. 19, 7:30 p.m. at Brandon Music, an evening of song to remember.
Accompanied by veteran musicians Robert Gagnon (guitar), Andy Smith (bass), and Rob Zollman (drums), Defrancesco will take guests on a musical journey, including “Unforgettable,” “All of Me,” “Cry Me A River,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” “Dream A Little Dream Of Me,” and a special “Route 66.”
Music has been Cooie DeFrancesco’s lifelong companion, from harmonizing with her family in the car as a child, listening late at night to the artists that still inspire her — until the transistor radio batteries gave out, to finally following her heart and bringing her voice to others personally. She now touches her audiences, leading their emotional journeys through the music that has always brought her comfort. “I laughed and cried and loved it all,” said a Montpelier listener.
This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2017, celebrating public funding for the arts.
