On Friday, August 29th, 2008 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with jazz saxophonist/vocalist Mindi Abair.
Why is life less ordinary for saxophonist/vocalist/composer Mindi Abair? Ask her fans from around the world- there’s not much ordinary about her. Mindi Abair catapults her supercharged mix of pop, soul and jazz, - with its stellar melodies, sultry sax and seductive vocals- into the realm of the extraordinary. Her 2003 debut CD, It Just Happens That Way, debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart and remained in the Top 10 for 19 consecutive weeks. The hit single “Lucy’s” was #1 on the airplay charts for a recording breaking eight weeks and Abair was hailed for leading a new movement in contemporary music.
For Abair, named the Best New Artist at 2003’s National Smooth Jazz Awards, it’s been a wild few years, and her follow-up discs kept the momentum jetting skyward. Her songs have been featured on everything from Aaron Spelling’s hit “Summerland” to a “Women in Jazz” feature at the Grammy’s to Panasonic’s Jumbotron in Time Square.
Tickets for this performance are $45.00 ($34.00 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
