Jazz:Grace Kelly Quartet– A Jazz Tribute to Frank Morgan

Arthur Bell Auditorium

It's difficult to call saxophonist and vocalist Grace a "rising star" anymore because at the age of 28, she has definitely ARRIVED. As a bandleader, she has performed more than 700 concerts in more than 30 countries, in notable venues such as the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. She has performed and/or recorded with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Lee Konitz, Phil Woods, Ron Carter, Bob Dorough, Esperanza Spalding, Lin Manuel, Gloria Estefan and Jon Batiste, leader of the house band for the The Late Show with Colbert.
Grace Kelly met Frank Morgan when she was just 13, and immediately became his protégé. "I've waited all my life to meet her", he said. Frank and Grace performed many times until his death in 2007. During those formative years with Frank, Grace fell in love with Taos– and joyfully became an integral part of the first Frank Morgan Taos Jazz Festival in 2015. She has performed in the festival every year since.
