Natalie John brings a joyful Brooklyn edge to Boston tonight. Ms. John is a modern singer and heeds no caution when exploring her own artistic voice. Her music applies the passionate voice of a jazz singer at heart to the tensions of jagged rhythms and complex, lush harmonies. http://nataliejohnmusic.com/

"This is what exciting music is: challenging and eye-opening", says C. Michael Bailey of All About Jazz.
