Kendra Shank Quartet
Vocalist Kendra Shank returns to The Bach, bringing for the first time her New York ensemble of 18 years. Their conversational group interplay creates an in-the-moment experience of modern jazz songs, re-imagined standards, originals, world/folk influences, and open improvisation, dubbed by The New Yorker as “imaginative and daring.” The show will feature selections from recent albums.
A breathtakingly original concept based upon open-ended bandstand interaction.

A combination of power and perfume.

Kendra Shank’s crystal-pure tone, powerful musicianship and elastic phrasing have won her rave critical notices and fans internationally. Hailed by The New York Times as a “superbly skilled vocalist” and an artist of “effervescence, depth,” and “integrity” (Nate Chinen), she headlines at top venues across the U.S. and abroad, captivating audiences with her genuine warmth and musicality. Shank combines jazz originals, standards, world music, French songs, folk/pop tunes, and open improvisation in an adventurous, genre-bending style that inspired Gary Giddins to call her “one of New York’s most original performers.” (Jazz Times)
