Vanessa Williams, Christian McBride at JAZZ ROOTS season finale

The sixth and final concert of the JAZZ ROOTS – A Larry Rosen Jazz Series 2015/16 season will take place at the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall of Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center on April 8 at 8 p.m.


The event, titled “Cool Velvet,” will consist of two sets. The Christian McBride Trio will be opening the show. Led by bassist McBride, the trio features pianist Christian Sands and drummer Jerome Jennings. Vocalist Vanessa Williams will then take to the stage, along with her 7-piece ensemble with whom she has toured the world.


Liz Wallace, vice president of programming of the Arsht Center, said “I can’t think of a better way to conclude an extraordinary JAZZ ROOTS concert season than with the remarkable talents of Vanessa Williams and Christian McBride on our Knight Concert Hall Stage. Both of these artists personify the rich variety and broad spectrum artists we present in this series each and every year.”
