Nov. 22-26 MELBA MOORE
featuring NAT ADDERLEY JR.

The Iridium Jazz Club is pleased to present Tony Award-winner and versatile singer/actress Melba Moore.

Ms. Moore, whose career spans four decades will perform a compilation of music from her illustrious career which will feature pop hits “This Is It," “Love's Comin' At'cha" and “You Stepped Into My Life"; selections from her Broadway shows Hair (Ms. Moore originated the role of Dionne, replacing Dianne Keaton and becoming the first black actress to replace a white actress is a lead role on Broadway), Purlie (for which she won the Tony Award for Best Supporting Actress In A Musical) and I Got Love; Ms Moore will also perform a selection of jazz standards that will feature the pianist/arranger Nat Adderley, Jr. (who is the nephew of the great Cannonball Adderley and the son of trumpeter Nat Adderley).

In addition to her considerable acting and singing talents, Ms. Moore is deeply spiritual, seeking daily wisdom from the Bible. She is an ardent advocate for the rights of children resulting in her Melba Moore Foundation for Abused and Neglected Children. This multifaceted artist/philanthropist is always reaching deeper, pressing harder, ever challenging herself; keeping her audience on the edge of their seats, knowing that whatever happens next will be at least, as exciting as what happened before.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
