New York Times jazz critic Nate Chinen described trumpeter/vocalist/composer Bria Skonberg as having become “the shining hope of hot jazz on the strength of a clarion trumpet style indebted to Louis Armstrong, a smooth purr of a singing voice inspired by Anita O’Day, and the wholesome glow of youth.” Skonberg was among a handful of youthful jazz practitioners heralded by Vanity Fair Magazine in its recent roundup of “Millennials Shaking up the Jazz World.” And the Wall Street Journal calls Bria one of the “most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.”
When the Jazz Arts Group presented Bria Skonberg at the Lincoln Theatre in 2014, she was a young jazzer on the rise. In just a few short years she has become a bona fide jazz star with critically acclaimed recordings and packed concert halls worldwide. She returns to Columbus to appear with Byron Stripling and the Columbus Jazz Orchestra performing a mix of great American songbook classics, jazz standards, and her own original compositions that showcase her unique, jazzy, relaxed intensity.
