RADD Jazz Series: Holiday Swing Dance with the UWRF Jazz Ensemble directed by David Milne and featuring guest vocalist Charmin Michelle. The Minneapolis Star/Tribune compares Charmin Michelle to the late Billie Holiday and other legendary ladies of jazz, delivering "Taste and understatement. Swing and savoir-faire. Grace and grooves. Intimacy and panache.” And, yet, her music is free of tiresome camp and easy nostalgia. She's a savvy songstress and, while putting her own imprint on a melody, is always respectful of those who first inhabited it.
The RADD Jazz Series is dedicated to the memory of John Radd, professor of Music and Jazz Ensemble director at UW-River Falls.
