Saturday, June 16th marked the 4th Annual Queen City Jazz Fest. If you’re unfamiliar, the QC Jazz Fest is held in Charlotte and curated by music enthusiast Charles Whitfield. Unlike most festivals, QCJF is a one day event starting around 6 in the evening. That’s awesome especially considering the heat and humidity for North Carolina during this time of year. It’s typically held at back of the Fillmore in the Amphitheatre, now called Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre.
I mean words simply cannot fully express the power, range and depth of soul this woman possesses. I’ve seen her twice before, so I already knew and I was ready. As she worked her way across the stage shimmying and feeling ALL of herself, she belted out her hit, I Blame You ... gave us mad ad-lib with these spectacular scats and runs of which you really only get to experience when you catch her live.
