Jazz pianist-singer, Robin Connell, the Artprize 2016 jazz music award recipient, and the West Michigan Jazz Society’s 2017 Musician of the Year, follows in the tradition of singer‐pianists Diana Krall, and Blossom Dearie, tickling the ivories with original arrangements of time honored jazz standards.
Originally from Detroit, she honed her craft in New York City, at places such as The Waldorf-Astoria, bringing the sophistication of The Great American Songbook to life in her own charming and inimitable way. An accomplished musician, Robin performs regularly as bandleader or side-woman throughout the Midwest (Chris Kjorness Trio, Beer City Saxes, Randy Marsh Trio, and others) and hosts the jazz piano concert series, Jazz in the Sanctuary at Fountain Street Church.
