very fashionable wearables.

Jazz world fusion, Ladies on the Mic

Jazz Concert Brings Spice to Popular Art Space

September 4, 2012: Ladies on the Mic presents Jazz World Fusion on
Friday, September 14th at 7:30pm. Four New Jersey based jazz
performers bring their world-class talents to Art House Productions
for a free evening concert.

Headlining the evening will be Leala Cyr and Ricardo Vogt who together
blend picturesque vocals and a sensual guitar sound to create a unique
collaboration of music. Together since 2002, this pair has found a way
to combine American and Brazilian roots to form a new array of sound.
Cyr and Vogt arrange everything from Duke Ellington, to Antonio Carlos
Jobim, to Guinga. There is no surprise that this combination is an
amazing one with the incredible scat technique of Leala Cyr, who has
been busy touring with the Grammy award winning Esperanza Spalding’s
Radio Music Society and sensational accompaniment of Ricardo Vogt…it’s
a match made in jazz heaven!

Jazz vocalist and composer Laura Brunner is a songstress of incredible
artistic depth. Brunner fuses an eclectic blend of jazz harmony and
electric grooves with her use of popular songs, jazz standards, and
original compositions. Brunner has become a deeply committed educator,
dedicating her life to the preservation and promotion of American Jazz
and its history to future generations. She has shared the stage with
an extraordinary array of musicians such as Kurt Elling, Ellis
Marsalis, Sheila E., Esperanza Spalding, Riannon, Bryan Baker, and the
Columbus Symphony Orchestra. Brunner is currently in the process of
recording her debut album and can be seen performing in the Midwest,
New England, and New York City areas.

Rebecca Vallejo, a Jersey City resident originally from Madrid, Spain
comes from a family of singers and began performing in public at age
four. She has performed on stages in Brazil, Cuba, Germany, Belgium,
Great Britain and Spain. Her repertoire includes songs in Spanish,
English and Portuguese. With two albums under her belt Vallejo is
currently in production of recording her third CD, which will be
produced in Spain, Brazil and the US. Vallejo is a versatile and
innovative vocalist, known for combining her ancestral flamenco roots,
her deep love and understanding of Brazilian
music, with the language of jazz creating a sound that is truly unique.
