Canadian soprano saxophonist, flautist and bandleader Jane Bunnett closes Summer at the CFA before heading to Jazz at Lincoln Center in September!

Bunnett earned her reputation as a talented and groundbreaking innovator by mixing Jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms and sounds. Her sextet, Spirits of Havana, includes some of the best young talent from Cuba now living in the US or Canada. In addition, she has made frequent musical pilgrimages to Cuba since the early 1980's, received two Grammy nominations for Best Latin Jazz CD (Cuban Odyssey, 2003; Alma de Santiago, 2002) and won Canada's Juno Award. The Boston Globe calls her “an artist of rare talent."

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.
