Not yet 22, Kelly has established herself as a legitimate presence on the contemporary jazz scene. Kelly’s saxophone skills recall the fitful style of Wayne Shorter while her vocal melodies put in her league with more pop-oriented artists such as Norah Jones. The Berklee-educated musician has already gigged with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., and mentor Lee Konitz. Catch this rising star while you can.
