The New Brunswick Jazz Project kicks off summer with two back to back outdoor events on Wednesday June 21 with the Second Annual Summer Solstice Jazz and Wine Concert, in conjunction with Rutgers Gardens. This year's event will feature 16-year-old jazz vocal phenom Alexis Morrast.

Alexis, a singer/song writer, is a native of Newark and currently lives in Plainfield, New Jersey. She began singing in church at the age of three, leading her first solo in the adult choir by seven. Since that time Alexis has performed on several stages including the U.S. OPEN in 2013, 2015 Central Jersey Jazz Festival in New Brunswick featuring trumpeter Sean Jones, NJPAC with Christian McBride, Clement’s Place in Newark, South Jazz Parlor in Philadelphia, the APOLLO THEATER in NYC where she won Amateur Night twice and subsequently returned to the show as a special guest. In February 2017 she was chosen WINNER of the nationally televised SHOWTIME at the APOLLO hosted by Steve Harvey. Most recently Alexis performed on Millennium Stage at The KENNEDY CENTER in Washington DC.

Miss Morrast is on her way to the top. See her while you can!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
