Five Point Jazz Festival goes virtual! Denver Arts & Venues and Rocky Mountain Public Media (RMPBS, KUVO JAZZ and THE DROP) are pleased to present the Five Points Jazz Festival virtually on Saturday, May 16, on RMPBS at 6pm and KUVO JAZZ kicks off at 8pm and to stream online on all of our platforms.
It is rare to find a vocal artist that can maneuver between genres while maintaining a genuine authenticity of each and the integrity of her own voice. Spanning from classical to gospel to jazz through to rock, blues, pop, funk and soul, Grammy nominated singer JoFoKe is one who does this with ease. To enhance her sound, JoFoKe formed a group of equally versatile vocalists and instrumentalists. This band, “aNem” (and them), uniquely fuses the improvisatory aesthetic of Modern Jazz with Gospel and R&B/Soul. The repertoire of the group is eclectic, comfortably placing Jazz Standards alongside funky covers and soul-tinged originals. JoFoKe aNem creates an experience that is, both musically and spiritually enriching.
aNem Personnel: Brionne Aigné, Stacie Potts Alexander & Dax Oliver – Vocals, Callum Bair – Guitar, Matthew J. Campbell – Drums, Solomon J. Chapman & Derek E. Greaves Jr. – Keyboards, Nate J. Marsh – Bass
