The influences and improvisational fluidity of jazz take center stage in a thrilling double bill of artists who infuse their sets with unique musical cultures and perspectives.

Known for reshaping mostly familiar melodies into art songs with their genre-blurring mastery of jazz, blues, classical, folk, and gospel music, vocalist Dominique Eade and pianist Ran Blake showcase their strikingly unique harmonies, lyrical force, and evocative atmospheres with a set that includes songs from their latest release—Town and Country—as well as other standards, originals, and tributes.

Kavita Shah seamlessly weaves together diverse cultural traditions into her jazz-based repertoire, from the Indian table and West African kora to African and Brazilian rhythms, placing seemingly eclectic songs, instruments, and artists in dialogue with one another to create a new type of jazz with global sensibilities that defies categorization.
