Paris, France — La Petite Halle, located at 211 Avenue Jean Jaurès, 75019 Paris, is excited to welcome harpist Brandee Younger & her trio on Tuesday, October 16th. Taking to the stage at 8:30pm, Brandee will be joined by Rashaan Carter on bass and Lawrence Leathers on drums.
Tickets available here.
Contemporary harpist Brandee Younger is one the most in-demand and innovative musicians of her time. Of her second album as a leader, Wax & Wane (2016), Nate Chinen at The New York Times enthused, “Ms. Younger’s sleek, assured new album, luxuriates in groove.” She’s played with jazz legends like Pharoah Sanders and Jack DeJohnette as well as John Legend, Common, and Drake and is considered one of the leading harpists of her generation. Recently, Younger led a trio of harpists alongside the incomparable Moses Sumney for a stirring rendition of his single “Quarrel”. A regular collaborator with Sumney, Younger’s haunting contributions are chronicled on a rare live performance for The Fader which is viewable here via Revive Music. In addition to her work with Sumney, Younger recently participated in “Monastic and Ecstatic: A Glimpse into the Life and Legacy of Alice Coltrane” at MOMA PS1. This 6 hour event on the life of Alice Coltrane featured presentations, performances and lectures by Brandee Younger, Ravi Coltrane, Michelle Coltrane, Ashley Kahn, Laraaji and Kelsey Lu.
