Curated and hosted by Vivian Lee, regional jazz matriarch and aficionado, Jazz Night makes the Crocker the cool place to be this summer every third Thursday through September.
Clairdee and her lustrous voice will be on the Main Stage, harkening back to a time when jazz, pop, gospel, rhythm and blues often blended seamlessly together. Clairdee is unmatched at both delighting and educating audiences, given her background as a teaching artist with SFJAZZ and the San Francisco Symphony; a faculty member of the Jazzschool Institute (now known as the California Jazz Conservatory) in Berkeley; and a performer at renowned jazz venues, such as Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Monterey Jazz Festival.
Performing with her trio, Clairdee presents a honed repertoire of standards, set to state-of-the-art arrangements that are equally smart and entertaining. The Cafe Stage will feature the garage soul band Current Personae with a sound reminiscent of Erykah Badu’s early day, Jill Scott before she became an actress, and Stevie Wonder’s funky period.
