April Art Hop Show:
Singer Jay Jay Ross, a graduate of WMU with a BFA in Jazz Studies, will perform her original music as well as thoughtful arrangements of obscure jazz standards. Her favorite professor instilled the importance of delivering disturbing music. With this performance, she would like to unsettle your ideas of what jazz should be. Her influences include Carmen McRae, Thelonious Monk, Cecile McLorin Salvant, The Bad Plus, and Wayne Shorter.
