JAZZ WEEK 2019
Jazz vocalist Rachel Caswell is best known for her improvisational prowess and her pinpoint accuracy of pitch and rhythm; however, audiences are increasingly drawn to her depth of delivery and interpretation of popular song. Her new 2018 CD on Turtle Ridge Records called We’re All in the Dance elicited the following response from jazz vocalist Sheila Jordan: “Rachel is a wonderful singer with a deep feeling and a fantastic improvisational talent complimented by a lovely rich sound.” She has performed most notably at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center in Nof the inaugural 2010 Jazz Education Network (JEN) Conference in St. Louis.
Rachel will be in residence at UIndy’s Annual Jazz Week on April 10th, culminating in a concert with both the UIndy Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Mark O’Connor and her own group.
