RISING STAR OF JAZZ
Veronica Swift’s rapid emergence as one of jazz’s most exciting young singers seems like fate. As Variety puts it, “It’s not often you hear one so young interpret the sounds of a seasoned jazz performer and make everything she touches her own.”
Veronica first took the stage with Jazz at Lincoln Center at the age of 11. She’s since performed with Jon Hendricks, Esperanza Spalding, and Joe Lovano. For her upcoming album, she will be backed by the Benny Green Trio, who played UpStage with us last season. She’s headlined the Telluride Jazz Festival, toured all around the country, and has a standing gig at Birdland in NYC.
