In performances that combine the energy of New Orleans swing with the dreamy vocals of radio crooners past, trumpeter and vocalist Bria Skonberg recalls a time, before bebop, when jazz was our nation’s popular music. Skonberg last performed at Cal Performances in April 2019, as part of the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour. Now, she returns with a quintet in support of her latest album, Nothing Never Happens, leading a set of hot jazz classics, vintage vocal tunes, original compositions, and fresh new takes on pop songs by the likes of the Beatles, Queen, and Sonny Bono.
