René Marie and Experiment In Truth: Sound of Red

Rene Marie, vocals John Chin, piano Elias Bailey, bass Quentin Baxter, drums

In concert and through 11 recordings, René Marie's empowered musical risk-taking, flawless artistry, and searing honesty have captivated audiences and critics alike, earning her accolades as "one of the most sensuous songbirds ever captured on disc" and comparisons to Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Eartha Kitt, and other leading ladies of jazz (JazzTimes). Sound of Red is an intimate cabaret experience delivered by René Marie and the jazz trio Experiment in Truth. This emotional excavation—a lifetime in the making—features original work that mines her own survivor's journey while navigating the bright and dark corners of the human experience as only she can.

There will be no late seating for this performance.

This performance will last approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
