Add to Calendar 2017-08-12 8:00 pm 2017-08-12 Jenny Maybee at The Back Room Jenny Maybee’s “eloquent and heart stopping” piano playing and vocals have been hailed as “expertly balanced,” with her voice described as “exquisite” and “in the same league” as Billie Holiday, and her piano stylings have been compared to Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner and Cecil Taylor.

Jenny co-produced and arranged her latest, nationally-charting album, HAIKU (2016), with veteran Grammy-recognized Jazz producer and trumpet player Nick Phillips (Karrin Allyson, Nnenna Freelon).

Jenny’s trio will bring an evening of innovative music to The Back Room. Rooted in the jazz and classical traditions, yet always breaking new ground, the trio will present original compositions and arrangements of favorite jazz standards.
