Known for her robust voice and rich tones, jazz vocalist Renee Manning came to fame in the jazz world as a big band singer with the Mel Lewis Orchestra from 1983 to 1989 -- the longest tenure of any vocalist associated with the organization. She's since performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Sir Roland Hanna, Mark Murphy, Howard Johnson, Joe Williams, the Mingus Big Band and the Chico O'Farrill Afro-Cuban Orchestra. As a solo artist, Manning's most recent album, All Grown Up, showcases the Grammy-nominated singer's soothing, quieter side. Learn More

Overall a great band and enjoyable evening. Though a not-so tight show: given the patter and communication within the band between each (and every!) song, the band clearly did not have an planned song list and kind of winged it, resulting in show that was bit disjointed in terms song selection and music styles/genres. This might be o.k. for a standing gig at a local venue, but not so much for a ticket-and-cover charge situation. Hopefully, their second set was a bit more put together.
