Tickets will be $20 Day of Show Trombonist and vocalist Melissa Gardiner is celebrating the release of her sophomore album, EMPOWERED, with her award winning band MG3 and special guest world-class jazz trumpeter Ingrid Jensen. Melody Rose Band will also be sharing the stage to support this iconic release. From Syracuse, NY, Melissa Gardiner has worked with several notable musicians including Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, and Vulfpeck. Of her performances, Jazziz says "Melissa Gardiner is known as one of the most technically creative and emotionally powerful trombonists today." EMPOWERED gives a voice to women who work in typically male dominated industries. Gardiner references potent personal experiences through original music. New York native Singer-songwriter Melody Rose contributes to the narrative of EMPOWERED with her unique sound. Of a performance at the Paramount in Huntington, NY, Cryptic Rock says "Rose harkened back to the best female acts of the '60s and '70s as she gave off the vibe of an edgy Carole King, the sharp wit of Rickie Lee Jones, and the power and confidence of a seasoned Diana Ross." Gardiner & Rose share a band, including Andrew Carroll on keys and Byron Cage on drums. Melody's band also includes bassist Zak Masoud. Special guest, Trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, will also bring an evening full of surprises with her captivating sound that celebrates, honors, and empowers women in music. Vancouver-born trumpeter Ingrid Jensen's career got off to a running start with the release of her debut album, Vernal Fields, in 1995, which won the Juno Award for Best Mainstream Jazz Album the following year. Nearly 25 years later, Jensen continues to be a force in modern jazz. She has released numerous albums of high acclaim as a leader or co-leader, and she's been a key collaborator alongside some of the most influential jazz artists including: Clark Terry, Billy Taylor, Maria Schneider and Terri Lyne Carrington. Some of her most recent work can be heard with Melissa Gardiner on the single "Slowly" from Gardiner's new album, EMPOWERED.
