Voices Album Release Party
January 25 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10
Celebrate the release of the album Voices with the Betsy Ezell Quintet at the North Street Cabaret on Friday, January 25 at 8pm. This exciting show will feature all of the music from Betsy’s debut album as well as music written and arranged by some of the best women jazz artists and other favorites. We’re excited to welcome drummer Chris Sandoval and special guest John Becker on vibes.
The North Street Cabaret is one of the best venues around for live music. The intimate room allows listeners to engage with the music making and the delicious food and drinks will keep you satisfied all evening.
And Voices will be available for sale! The album is comprised of eight original compositions and one original arrangement of a jazz standard. Many of these songs were composed in 2018 as part of Betsy Ezell’s writing and recording project called “Feminine Blue”, supported in part by the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium. The compositions are a reflection on what women uniquely bring to jazz and the cultural narratives around women and power. Intentionally collaborative, Betsy was the lead writer with input, editing and support from co-creators Becca May Grant (piano) and Laurie Lang (bass).
