On January 25, 2020, the Monty Alexander Trio + Jane Monheit + Freddy Cole + the Charleston Jazz Orchestra will perform on the Gaillard stage for a once-in-a-lifetime jazz collaboration! Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, Grammy-nominated pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. Blessed with “a voice of phenomenal beauty” (Stephen Holden, New York Times), Jane Monheit has had plenty of milestone moments in establishing herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians. At the young age of 88, Freddy Cole’s career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America’s homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own. Nominated for a 2019 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Recording, Freddy Cole captivates listeners with his elegant presence, subtle phrasing, and intimate singing style.
Joining these jazz phenoms on the Gaillard stage will be the Charleston Jazz Orchestra, which under the direction of Robert Lewis, has been performing for audiences in the Lowcountry for over 10 years.
The Charleston Jazz Orchestra is comprised of 18 accomplished jazz musicians and is an entertaining and educational example of the rich history of jazz in Charleston.
