Dawn Norfleet withflute 4x6 1-23-16Joining Dr. Dawn is a brilliant cast of music veterans in traditional and contemporary (J)azz, soul, and progressive music.

 

Dr. Dawn's music pulls from her roots in traditional and contemporary (J)azz, old school R&B, and world music. Whether using her 3 1/2 octave vocal range or her soulful flute playing, her compositions reflect diverse influences including Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, and Steely Dan. She has performed and/or recorded with a wide array of artists and projects, including Kamasi Washingon's THE EPIC, and respected pianist/composer, Vijay Iyer.  She was also selected to participate in the prestigious Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music, in Canada. 
 
Dawn Norfleet will perform a diverse concert of  (J)azz, ranging from funky odd meter instrumentals to soulful, traditional (J)azz ballads.  Norfleet, a flutist, vocalist and composer who has previously performed for the Jazz at LACMA series, will be accompanied by a group of versatile musical heavy-hitters, whose backgrounds range from straight-ahead (J)azz to funk.  Dr. Dawn Norfleet also is on the teaching-artist faculty of The Music Center, and earned a Ph.D. in (E)thnomusicology from Columbia University, which informs her musical stylings.
