Joelle Lurie Quartet
Acclaimed New York City-based vocalist and songwriter, Joelle Lurie, brings her distinctive “jazzed-up pop & popped-up jazz” modern style to Take Me There (2014), her debut album of standards, originals, and reimagined pop covers. Featured on NPR’s "Song Travels with Michael Feinstein”, Joelle's record features tight arrangements by her longtime bassist, Ben Gallina, and her Quartet. Recent engagements include New York’s Lincoln Center, Birdland Jazz Club, New York Stock Exchange, Top of the Rock and Regattabar.
In 2016-17, the Joelle Lurie Quartet was the Resident Artist for Lincoln Center Kids, performing throughout the season, teaching children about music, and developing their new kids’ music brand, JoJo & The Pinecones. Their newest album, Night & Day (2017), is geared toward kids but enjoyed by all ages, and has received great reviews since charting on SiriusXM Kids Place Live. JoJo & The Pinecones performed for the first time at the famed Lollapalooza Festival and made their BAM debut in 2017.
