She is among the few jazz musicians who commit to telling a story in her music and performance style while sparking spontaneous sonic conversation with her fellow musicians. Such commitment and its results captivate her audiences, whether in live performance or listening to her recordings. Grammy award-winning writer Bob Blumenthal writes: "A special singer can evoke a thermometer's span of temperatures while sustaining a singular fire within. Kristen Lee Sergeant is special." Her debut record, Inside Out, came out in 2016 to much enthusiasm, and most critics (including Down Beat, who made it a critic's pick) were sure to make mention of her dramatic delivery -- she doesn't just perform a song, she lives it -- and her listeners do as well. Smolder, her newest release, is an arrival of Kristen as a songwriter, arranger, and a creative improviser. Incorporating cello, alto flute, and percussion, the album expresses the feelings of fire from extinguished to blazing in an intensely personal and dynamic way. The band, comprised of some of the best musicians in jazz (Ted Nash, Cameron Brown, Jeb Patton, Jody Redhage Ferber, Jay Sawyer, Rogerio Boccato), surrounds her with intensity and personality, a testament to Kristen's vision and the creativity it inspires. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=350769 Birdland Birdland
