A2 Jazz Fest Preview Featuring Janelle Reichman

Thursday June 1, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Enjoy a musical evening as bassist and band leader Dave Sharp presents a jazz concert featuring clarinetist and saxophonist Janelle Reichman. Janelle will be one of several local jazz artists appearing at the annual A2 Jazz Fest, this year occurring on September 9 at the Ann Arbor Distillery.

Janelle has performed with musical greats such as Doc Severinsen, Les Paul, Anne Hampton Callaway, Sherrie Maricle and DIVA, Dave Liebman, Donny McCaslin, and many others.

Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, she attended the Manhattan School of Music, quickly after which she embarked upon an exciting and diverse career in the New York City jazz scene. Her debut solo album, "Middleground," received rave reviews.

In 2016, Janelle was a featured clarinetist at Jazz @ Lincoln Center's production of Moonglow: The Magic of Benny Goodman. After ten years living in New York City, Janelle moved back to Ann Arbor last summer and couldn't be happier to be home.

"Demonstrating a complete command of the sound and keys of her tenor … she seems to defy logic and possibility in her speed, dexterity, and musicianship." - Jazz Improv Magazine.
