    Spend Valentine’s Day with your special loved one at Dorthaan’s Place, where the jazz brunch series hosts Newark-born vocalist Antoinette Montague, a jazz singer who moves effortlessly between gutsy blues and hushed romantic ballads.

     

    “Her sound is smooth with a soulful edge,” says Jersey Jazz. “Montague never gets tied up with vocal excesses – she’s emphatic when she needs to be, and tender at the appropriate moments.”

     

    At The Antoinette Montague Experience Presents World Peace and Love in the Key of Jazz, Blues and Beyond, count on hearing an original program with fantastic twists on the music of John Lennon, Clara Ward and Pete Seeger and more music to love, accompanied by Montague's triple ace musicians.

     

    Montague has played most of the major jazz clubs in New York and recently returned from Israel with the Ashdod Symphony Orchestra. She was the first jazz and blues entertainer to perform at the opening of the Belgrade Philharmonic in the Soviet Union. “Jazz players love to accompany a genuine jazz singer, and Antoinette Montague is as real as they come,” says Jazz Times.

     

    This intimate jazz brunch is curated and hosted by WBGO programmer Dorthaan Kirk, Newark's "First Lady of Jazz."
