Generations of Her
March 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Nicole Zuraitis’ show titled “Generations of Her” celebrates female songwriters of the last century. Nicole delivers a gorgeous interpretation of song–her voice is spectacular, and her piano chops sublime. Her choices and arrangements blew me away”— Broadway World
Grammy-nominated jazz singer, songwriter and pianist Nicole Zuraitis blends her powerful stage presence, clever composition and unparalleled vocals in a package that has thrilled audiences across Manhattan and the world. Her new project, Generations of Her: Women Songwriters and Lyricists of the last 100 years has sold out both the Birdland Theater and the Cell Theater in New York within months of its conception. Featuring music written by women starting in 1924 until the present day, this show is full of surprises, stories, unknown facts, and classic gems. From Carole King to Sade, Nina Simone to Dolly Parton, “Generations of Her” is a sure crowd favorite!
The “Generations of Her” quartet is Nicole Zuraitis on voice and piano, Lebanese/Canadian drummer Sanah Kadoura, Israeli bassist Inbar Paz and Texas born saxophonist Jordan Pettay.
“Emerging onto the scene with a notably warm personality, Zuraitis, vocalist extraordinaire, gave her audience a blues “clinic.”….soaring vocals… intimate familiarity….intonation and dreamy clarity…..I watched, transfixed by Zuraitis’s careful mastery of both piano and vocal. She made a mark for herself there (Birdland Jazz Club).”- CHRIS STRUCK CABARET SCENES MAGAZINE 2019
