Katie Thiroux Quartet: Friday August 7th, 2015 @ 7:00pm
A triple threat talent, Katie Thiroux has garnered considerable attention for her bravura bass playing, assured singing and compelling compositions. Lending contemporary flair to mainstream stylings, Thiroux carries on the hard swinging tradition of bass masters Ray Brown and John Clayton, while channeling the buoyant vocal finesse of iconic singers including Anita O’Day, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald. Joined by her band mates, guitarist Graham Dechter, saxophonist Roger Neumann, and drummer Matt Witek, Thiroux offers in-the-moment jazz that draws upon the rich history of the music, from swing to bebop and beyond. After being awarded the Phil Ramone Presidential Scholarship, Thiroux attended the Berklee College of Music and earned her Master’s degree in Jazz Studies from CSU Long Beach in 2013. She has worked with, among many, Branford Marsalis, Greg Osby, Dr. Billy Taylor, Terri Lyne Carrington, and has performed at jazz festivals in the United States, Mexico, Germany, Finland, Serbia, and Singapore.
