Perception Album Release at ARTBAR

Date: April 19, 2018

Time: 7:30pm - 9pm

Location: 674 Broadway Kingston

Perception Album Release at ARTBAR

“Indie-voiced Kristina Koller mixes jazz and bohemia…Gotta see her!” – JazzWeekly

Accomplished, vocalist, composer and arranger Kristina Koller will present music from her debut album ‘Perception’. As one of the most applauded rising stars in jazz, Koller has developed quickly into a highly individual vocalist, melding jazz, funk, R&B and alt-rock sounds into her songs. Kristina arranges tunes in unique ways, knowing that adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than recreating the performances of others. The New York native culled her musical chops in the NYC jazz scene, performing at venerable jazz haunts such as Smalls, Smoke, Minton’s, Mezzrow as well as The Apollo Theater. Kristina was a featured Discovery Artist at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival and her quintet were semi-finalists in the 2017 DCJazzPrix competition.

Koller is a very original contemporary jazz vocalist, one that anyone interested in jazz, or for that matter progressive music, needs to hear.

$15 cover
