    July 13 - Alexis Cole Quartet

    With a voice praised as “a deep contralto as smooth and dark as the richest espresso” (Jazz Times, November 2007,) award-winning jazz vocalist Alexis Cole has made an impressive impact on audiences ever since she first took the stage as a teenager.

    Ms. Cole performs regularly at festivals, performing arts centers and jazz clubs throughout the world as well as in her home base of New York City. Most recently, she’s added the position of lead vocalist for the West Point Band's Jazz Knights, the U.S. Military Academy big band, to her eclectic resume.  With seven records so far, Alexis Cole is on her way to becoming the next great singer. 

    This is one singer you’ll want to pay attention to.  As the infamous jazz publication Swing Journal states, “We've been waiting for the next great singer to come along, and finally... Alexis.” 

     

    Thursdays in the Park Live! is a collaboration of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, Fontana and City of Kalamazoo Parks & Recreation.  This series is generously supported by the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation and Metro Toyota.
