Jazz Evenings Debut April 11 at the Hoboken Museum
Trombonist Robert Edwards and vocalist Vanessa Perea will bring their jazz quartet to the Hoboken Museum on April 11 at 7 p.m. for the first of three performances this spring. They return on the second Wednesday of the next two months, May 9 and June 13, before the Museum closes for the month of July. Admission is $7, or $5 for Museum members, and includes light refreshments.
Edwards and Perea perform mostly standards from the great American Songbook, including songs favored by Frank Sinatra—think Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, Irving Berlin—infused with Brazilian and funk influences.
“We enjoy making funk tunes swing and the swing tunes funky,” says Edwards, describing his three-year collaboration with the Glen Ridge, N.J.-born Perea. Perea says she enjoys singing with a band led by a trombone: “Singing with a trombone is like singing with another voice. The sound and capabilities of the instruments are very similar.”
