Jazz in the Crawlspace Presents Janis Siegel
Jazz in the Crawlspace is excited to present vocalist Janis Siegel in a jazz-club style performance in downtown Kalamazoo. Over the past four and a half decades, the voice of Janis Siegel, a nine-time Grammy winner and a seventeen-time Grammy nominee, has been an undeniable force in The Manhattan Transfer’s diverse musical catalog. Alongside her career as a founding member of this musical institution, Siegel has also sustained a solo career that has spawned almost a dozen finely-crafted solo albums and numerous collaborative projects.
Over the years, Janis’ unmistakable voice has become one of The Manhattan Transfer’s most recognizable trademarks. She sang lead on some of the Transfer’s biggest hits, such as “Operator,” “Chanson D’Amour,” “Twilight Zone,” “Birdland,” “The Boy from N.Y.C.,” “Spice of Life,” ”Ray’s Rockhouse,” “The Shaker Song,” and “Mystery,” and co-wrote and sang lead on the Grammy-winning “Sassy.”
Janis will be performing with Matthew Fries (piano), John Hébert (bass) and Keith Hall (drums).
