Grace Kelly @ KCSM Jazz On The Hill – Saturday 04 June 2016

16_05_21_KCSM_GKellySinger-Saxophone player Grace Kelly will be on stage Saturday afternoon at KCSM’s free summer concert in San Mateo, on the college grounds.  She is from Wellesley, Massachusetts.  While a young performer, Grace already has quite a few years credited on stage, quite a few awards (and quite a few releases as well).

Kelly’s music style is versatile, now mod (and maybe mood), sometimes retro, and then clear & lyrical.  A great number of her performance numbers are vocals or saxophone instrumentals.  For some samples try here “Blues For Harry Bosch,” a “new” retro arrangement on sax with great melody, “Trying To Figure It Out,” a clear, melodic vocal from her 2016 release, “Ready, Set, Stay,”  a band stage vocal, and “Nuages,” a moody 2012 festival instrumental.
