Irwin Hall Quartet ft. Melanie Charles

  • Black Cat 400 Eddy Street San Francisco, CA, 94109 United States (map)

Award-winning saxophonist, flutist and clarinetist Irwin Hall is frequently compared to a young Coltrane. He has toured with songstress Melody Gardot as featured soloist, earning rave reviews and write-ups around the world. He has since gone on to tour, perform, and record with 3x Grammy/Tony Award winning NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater, soul icon John Legend, bass virtuoso Charnett Moffett, Theo Croker and countless more.

Melanie Charles is electric on stage!  Her creative fluidity embraces jazz, R&B, soul, experimental and her own Haitian roots.  Her soulfulness stems from her roots in the church; her power from her training as an opera singer; and her sultriness is just Melanie.  She has performed and recorded with the Gorillaz; appeared on Colbert’s Late Show; and has graced the stages of the Blue Note, Lincoln Center, Nublu, Ronnie Scott’s and other global venues.
