Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Bria Skonberg

When: Thu., July 3, 8 p.m. 2014

Bria Skonberg is on a mission to change the perception of traditional jazz. The young trumpeter/singer takes old tunes and puts them through a freshly modern interpretation. Her latest album Into Your Own plays with different genres including New Orleans jazz, 1920s standards and world music. Skonberg wails on the trumpet with a moving clarity that’s been compared to Louis Armstrong. Her innovation rings true on “Winin’ Boy Blues,” in which she runs her trumpet through a Hendrix-esque fuzz box. Skonberg’s voice is soothing and powerful, and she plays with some effective African harmonies and rhythm on the genre-crossing “Come Into Your Own.” (Eric Gonzalez)
