Jazz live music

Grew up in jazz. My stepdad is Stanley Clarke, legendary jazz bassist, one of the trailblazers of fusion in the early 1970s. With Chick Corea he was in a band called Return to Forever, and growing up, he was always shoving Ella Fitzgerald under my nose.
I went to art school. I studied painting and performance art and video production. I spent a lot of time not studying music, loving jazz the whole time — it’s the family business.
I loved singing — it was my favorite thing to do ever since I was a little kid. It’s what I need to do on this planet, and a lot of people need to hear…That’s the situation I find myself in, in this body, in this lifetime. It’s about jazz music for me, there’s nothing that I love more.

Randi Cee
Jazz Swing Live Music
The songs Randi Cee sings can be called Jazz tunes. But they are so much more. These tunes were the pop songs of the day and run the gamut from sweet to saucy. The one thing they all have in common is they swing! Whether she is singing these songs in a nightclub, supper club, or jazz festival one thing becomes apparent she embodies the tune. It’s about telling the story and swinging that melody. As an audience member you are totally caught up in her stage presence.
Randi Cee has enjoyed (and still is enjoying) a successful career as a Los Angeles based Actor, Dancer and Singer. Her craft has allowed her the opportunity to travel the world, from a commercial shoot in Tokyo, to having a recurring role in The New Adventures of Robin Hood which shot in Lithuania, to dancing live at the Academy Awards, Randi has covered the globe.
Randi Cee, by her own admission, was “Ruined by MGM musicals”, As a small child she thought to act, sing, and dance must be the best way to go through life! To that end, Randi has had the opportunity to work with Directors as varied as Steven Spielberg, The Coen Brothers, Adam Shankman, Robby Marshall, and Joss Whedon.
For the last several years, she has been focusing her efforts on bringing the gems of the Early American Songbook to life. Inspired by time spent in New Orleans. Randi is thrilled to be part of the great tradition of singers who are keeping this music alive and well. Although “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, a good night of music is not! Not only does Randi bring her voice to the stage, but a personality and style that you’d swear just walked off the Back Lot! If it’s raining out and you should find her dancing and singing in the street, just smile and tip your imaginary hat!

Jack’s Cats Trio.
Jack’s Cats isn’t just a dance band, they’re a 30s-40s listener’s band that’s damn good to dance to
Make your reservation at www.edwinmills.com
“Exciting, intelligent, and fun, the Cats could swing any nightclub in the Golden Age of Jazz — yet they deliver a show that audiences connect with today.”
Led by reedman Jack Malmstrom, the Cats sidestep the “faster/louder/higher” trend by exploring a warm, melodic 30s and 40s “pre-bop” sound. Their playlists overflow with one half hand-picked standards, one half forgotten gems… and a third-half, Jack’s Cats originals done in a period style.
As a trio, Jack’s smooth clarinet and purring sax are backed by a micro-rhythm section to create an intimate all-acoustic sound that still swings.
Those who know jazz know it’s good; those who don’t… just know it’s fun!

Connie Han
Piano , live music
Make your Reservations www.edwinmills.com
"Connie Han is a promising piano voice with a depth and maturity beyond her years. Her drive and creative energy are part of the puzzle. Expect only the best from Connie, for years to come," says jazz giant Vincent Herring.
Connie hit the ground running early on having fronted her own trio in local Jazz clubs since she was a young teen. With an unshakable work ethic and passion for the art, her career is bound to make its mark on the Jazz idiom.
At just 21 years of age, Connie Han plays with the effervescence of a seasoned professional. In late 2015, Han released her well-received debut album The Richard Rodgers Songbook, which has made inroads in the US, UK, Japan, and other Jazz markets across the globe. In June 2016 she broke onto the west coast Jazz scene after releasing a video series, The Fraser Outtakes, via YouTube. This prompted a feature on the front page of the Jazz media website All Music Television alongside heavyweights Christian McBride, Billy Childs, and Quincy Jones. In August 2016 she performed at the second Annual Asian Heritage Jazz Festival on the same bill as Hiroshima member June Kuramoto and Phil Woods disciple Grace Kelly. In her time performing on the west coast, Han has cut her teeth with major Jazz personalities such as Walter Smith III, Bob Sheppard and Mike Clark where she has packed landmark venues like Catalina Jazz Club, The Blue Whale, and The Baked Potato.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California — Han attended the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts majoring in both Classical and Jazz piano. After receiving full scholarships to attend New England Conservatory and UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music, Connie chose instead to jump right into the grind of a professional musician. She lives by the wisdom of piano giant Mulgrew Miller who said, "Jazz is part progressive and part folk art." Her other influences include Jazz icons Hank Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Kenny Kirkland to name a few.
Han performs with her trio both locally and abroad.

Live Jazz Night

I grew up in Seattle playing saxophone and clarinet and moved to Los Angeles to attend USC in 2008. While at USC I started exploring singing, flute, composition, and songwriting. I also met Andris and Max, and together we formed Moonchild in 2012. I'm so grateful for the people and opportunities I've had here that have helped me grow so much as a musician and a person. I now make a living teaching and trying to be as musical as I can 🙂 I hope we can work together and I hope this site helps you find out more about me and what I love to do.
Thank you,
Amber
