“With the poise of an opera diva and an ability to scat like Ella Fitzgerald, New York-based singer Danielle Freeman possesses a voice that commands attention with beauty and control…” All About Jazz, Mark Turner, December 28, 2010
Danielle Freeman’s music is based on an opera-jazz theme, a culmination and expansion of both genres. Her ensemble, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a unification of operatic classical forms with harmonic, rhythmic and improvisational forms, experimental jazz, electronica and soul. She has been described as a "forward thinking vocalist of jazz influence."
Freeman will be joined by Kris Davis, a Canadian pianist with an ever present musical voice within the jazz community. Greek bassist, Petros Klampanis, a successful bandleader and sideman in New York City, who recently released his first album on Greg Osby's label Inner Circle. Tomas Fujiwara, also of The Hook-Up and the banda band Red Baraat, will be featured on the drums. Brooklyn based violist and violinist improviser, Mat Maneri, will complete the ensemble sound. The first set will feature Tyson Deaton, a prolific pianist and accompanist for instrumentalist and Met Opera singers.
