Sarah McKenzie Quintet
Monterey Jazz Festival

  

The Coffee House Gallery, Monterey Jazz Festival

Monterey, CA 93940

In this performance from the 2014 Monterey Jazz Festival, Australian pianist, vocalist, and composer Sarah McKenzie leads the Sarah McKenzie Quintet.

McKenzie first gained attention with her "breezy technical style, songwriting acumen, and pronounced lyrical sense of swing" (apple.com). Soon after, she landed a spot as backing vocalist on Michael Bublé's Call Me Irresponsible tour, as well as an opening slot for Chris Botti's tour in 2011.

Hailed a once-in-a-generation talent, McKenzie has received multiple honors including a full-tuition scholarship to Berklee College of Music in 2012. Her music pedigree also includes mentorships by legends such as Graeme Lyall, Jamie Oehlers, and James Morrison.



This performance was originally broadcast live on September 20, 2014, from The Coffee House Gallery at Monterey Jazz Festival in Monterey, CA.
