Jazz singer Jane Harvey Brown has been entertaining New Orleans audiences for 20 years. Jane will be appearing at The Mint to celebrate the release of a new recording with her all star band including the irrepressible Lawrence Cotton and drummer Kerry Brown. The tracks on the CD were recorded at a previous appearance at The Mint. Jane brings a sense of history to her performance. While studying voice in Vermont’s Bennington College, Brown presented one-woman shows on the music and lives of such icons as Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters and Billie Holiday. Her performances and costumes are informed by her work on those shows and New Orleans icons Blue Lu Barker, Sweet Emma Barrett and Lizzie Miles.
