Winter Jazz Series: Nicki ParrottFebruary 12, 2016
As an accomplished composer, adventurous improviser and superlative bassist, Nicki Parrott brings beautiful tone, rhythmic assuredness and a touch of allure to inventive jazz arrangements. Deemed “a first-class bassist whose playing is as sublime as her vocals,” Parrott’s elegant voice and emotive bass blend to create a depth of expression that can both break a heart and increase one’s blood pressure.
Since 2000, Nicki has performed every Monday night at the Iridium Jazz Club in NYC as part of legendary guitarist and inventor Les Paul’s Trio, and has shared the stage with such notable musicians as Jose Feliciano, John Pizzarelli, Patti Labelle, and Marlena Shaw. She has performed in several Broadway shows (Avenue Q, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Jekyll and Hyde) and has performed at many major festivals around the globe.
This concert is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Winter Jazz Series in the Poli Club. Subscriptions to all five shows, which include reserved seating, can be purchased online or by calling the Box Office at 203-346-2000.
