Attention all jazz fans looking to get lost in the world of beats and rhythms, there’s a special surprise heading your way. End a relaxing weekend or start a lively week by attending a thrilling musical performance. The amazing Hopewell jazz vocalist Wenonah “Nona” Brooks will present “Home Sweet Home, A Jazz Cabaret” on Sunday, April 29 at 7 pm. While being treated to a jazz performance, the cabaret will serve desserts and coffee and are inviting guests to bring their own wine or beer.
Performing since the age of eight, Brooks has sung with some of jazz’s greatest musicians like Stanley Jordan, Shirley Horn, Richie Cole, Denis DiBlasio and Cecil Brooks III. Brooks is best known for her interpretation of jazz standards of Basie, Porter, Monk, and Ray Charles. Brooks will not perform the show solo because she’ll be backed-up by her jazz trio, piano player Aaron Graves (Philadelphia), drummer Joe Brown, Jr. (West Windsor), and bassist Matthew Parrish (Yardley).
As a bonus to all of the talented musicians, special guest Houston Person, who released a new album So Nice, and Brooks’ granddaughter Tatiana Fulmer, will also be there.
