“Cat’s out of the Bag” is more than just another composition by Jazz Bassist & composer Cecil McBee –
It is stating pure joy of improvising music, the excitement of the musical stage moment, the readiness and bluntness of this jazz group that takes full advantage of expressing their thoughts and emotions with great musicianship at any moment and that ties them together as the talented group they are.
Verena’s lively and authentic singing and storytelling, her unique way of swinging and scatting and her beautiful way of interpreting ballads might keep you surprised throughout the night with its wittiness, depth, moodiness and out of all things: spontaneity.
Enjoy an entertaining event with Verena McBee and her Trio !
