The jazz supergroup of the year is right here – SHEroes, convened by pianist-composer Monika Herzig for a second recording by distinguished improvising virtuosos who are all, not just incidentally, women. Monika’s deft, always supportive pianism and her warm, joyous, practical sensibility marks every tune with SHEroes. As a Doctor of Music at Indiana University, she is a senior lecturer focusing on Arts Management in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. She is the biographer of IU’s late Doctor David Baker and recently released “A listener’s guide to Chick Corea.” SHEroes also features an international cast of players: Reut Regev (Israel)- Trombone; Jennifer Vincent (USA/NYC)- Trumpet; Jamie Baum (NYC)- Flute; Leni Stern (Germany/NYC)- Electric Guitar; Rosa Avila (Mexico/NYC)- Drums. Each member is a first call, in demand artist for multiple groups and a leader/composer/arranger in her own right.
Monika will be playing two shows in the CT NY area
November 17 at the Side Door- 8:30 to 11:30pm
November 19 at The Falcon- 8:00-9:00pm
