Women's History Month Celebration Series: Great singers and instrumentalists from the Bay Area and across the country.

«A master class on space and dynamics… an adept lyrical interpreter… tremendous tonal command » — JazzTimes

The buzz-worthy 22-year-old vocalist set the jazz world on fire after her second-place finish at the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, in which she wowed judges Dee Dee Bridgewater, Al Jarreau and Patti Austin with her evocative takes on “This Bitter Earth” from the Dinah Washington songbook and the classic standard “September in the Rain.” A native of Charlottesville, North Carolina, the prodigious Swift made her recording debut at age 9 with saxophonist Richie Cole and has followed her muse ever since, recording her second album with tenor player Harry Allen, making her debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center at 11, and indulging her taste for 20s and 30s swing with the legendary Nighthawks band led by historian and musician Vince Giordano. The daughter of renowned pianist Hod O’Brien and singer Stephanie Nakasian, Swift has shared stages with Michael Feinstein, Jon Hendricks, Paquito D’Rivera, Esperanza Spalding, and Joe Lovano, and will release her new album, Lonely Woman, this year. Don’t miss this young star on the rise, forging a path as jazz superstar in the making.
