A Memorable Evening of Jazz with Carrie Jackson

The Metropolitan Society is proud to present Carrie Jackson, backed by her quartet of bass, drums, guitar and keyboard, for a special evening of Jazz. Carrie is considered one of the most consistently interesting and talented singers in the metropolitan area, and is one of the top jazz artists around today, serving up a great mix of classical performances in jazz favorites, soulful sultry pop, blues and poignant mellow gospel.

Carrie Jackson rekindles thoughts of America's great jazz history, and attributes her vocal style of singing to her mentors, the Great Ladies of Jazz, Sarah "Sassy" Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Nancy Wilson, and Carmen Mc Rae. Newark's notable musicians include, Wayne Shorter, Woody Shaw, James Moody, Ike Quebec, just to name a few. She has taken all of her mentors and made them a part of her, and brings new horizons to America's classical art form "Jazz", the truth is, she has a bit of all them and more that is uniquely her own. Carrie's smooth, sultry, soulful sound has captivated thousands, and she maintains a uniqueness that is her own and proudly carries the jazz banner with her own enchanting style.

"Ms. Jackson is one of the most sought after vocalist's in the metropolitan area, her resume looks like a Who's, Who of Jazz..........Extraordinary! She Electrifies her audiences with her dynamic music and takes the audience by storm with her charm and temperament"........ Jerome Wilson, Cadence Jazz Magazine
