Veronica Swift featuring the Benny Green Trio Live in the 1200 Club
March 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$40
At just 23, swinging singer Veronica Swift is quickly making her mark on the jazz world. Possessing a rare combination of technical command and depth of feeling that belies her age, she won second place in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition and has performed at top venues across the nation. Don’t miss this young star on the rise in the 1200 Club!
A native of Charlottesville, North Carolina, the prodigious Swift made her recording debut at age 9 with saxophonist Richie Cole and has followed her muse ever since, recording her second album with tenor player Harry Allen, making her debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center at 11, and indulging her taste for 20s and 30s swing with the legendary Nighthawks band led by historian and musician Vince Giordano. The daughter of renowned pianist Hod O’Brien and singer Stephanie Nakasian, Swift has shared stages with Michael Feinstein, Jon Hendricks, Paquito D’Rivera, Esperanza Spalding and Joe Lovano.
