Seven-time winner of the DownBeat Critics Poll, Grace Kelly performs from her new album, Trying To Figure It Out, which was voted the #2 Jazz Album of the Year in DownBeat’s 2016 Readers Poll. 

Called “the future of jazz” by NPR, the 25-year-old saxophonist and vocalist has risen to be a major jazz star, appearing with Jon Batiste and Stay Human on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Grace has led nine full-length albums including Gracefullee in collaboration with NEA Jazz Master Lee Konitz and Man With the Hat with fellow NEA honoree Phil Woods, and participated in the Kennedy Center's 15th Annual Mary Lou Williams Women In Jazz Festival as part of an all-star band including Dee Dee Bridgewater, Esperanza Spalding, Geri Allen, and Terri Lyne Carrington.
