Co-Presented with Blues Alley
The best of the legendary Smooth Jazz Cruise stars, together on stage at Strathmore! Baltimore-born-and-raised soul singer extraordinaire, Maysa has a passionate following here, and no wonder: her “ebony contralto is sensuously joyful” (Kickmag.com), “lithe, lovely and expressive…a constant delight” (The Washington Post). South African guitarist and singer Jonathan Butler exploded onto the American music scene in 1987, opening for Whitney Houston. Since then, this masterful musician has grooved new ground in R&B, jazz and soul with his “soaring vocals and masterful guitar style” (AllAboutJazz.com). Canadian saxophonist Warren Hill has topped the Smooth Jazz, Adult Contemporary and Top 40 charts with his smooth and soulful sound.
This concert will run approximately 85 minutes with no intermission.
