Hard Bop Messengers featuring Taynka MiMi
A Birthday Celebration of Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones
Welcome to an enchanting evening of music as we celebrate the birthdays of two remarkable singer-songwriters, Joni Mitchell (b.11/7/43) and Rickie Lee Jones (b. 11/8/54).
John Covelli, bandleader for Hard Bop Messengers, dreamed of doing this concert for years, juxtaposing the folk and rock melodies of Jones and Mitchell with the dynamic energy of his acoustic jazz quintet. However, while nurturing this concept for years, Covelli had to wait until he found just the right vocalist.
Taynka MiMi: A Voice of Resonance
At the heart of this celebration is the captivating voice of Taynka MiMi. John Covelli’s patient wait for the ideal vocalist has been rewarded with MiMi’s exceptional talent. Her soulful renditions and emotional depth breathe new life into the songs, perfectly complementing the jazz quintet’s instrumental brilliance. Their meticulous planning bring out a fresh perspective in the music, infusing it with spirit and innovation.
Join us for "A Birthday Celebration of Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones", an unforgettable evening where melodies intertwine, emotions resonate, and the essence of musical greatness is celebrated.
