Julie Kelly

Thursday, August 1 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Doors open at 5:30 PM Steamers JAZZ at JAX Julie Kelly

Singer/guitarist Julie Kelly brings her new record, Freedom Jazz Dance, to Campus JAX for an evening of Brazilian, jazz, and pop gems with the superlative Jim Cox Trio: Jim Cox on piano, Domenic Genova on bass, and John Ferraro on drums.

Jazz critic Jonathan Widran says of this new record, "In some ways, her whole existence has been a  freedom jazz dance. She mines the tender heart of Gregory Porter’s socially conscious 'Take Me to the Alley,' brings a passionate longing and sensuality to Gordon Lightfoot’s 'Early Morning Rain,' and a wondrous, intimate take on the beautiful Sting obscurity 'Practical Arrangement.' The latest triumph in Kelly’s career.”
