THE 2018 CONCERT SERIES

"CELEBRATING 11 YEARS OF HONORING THE TRADITION, JAZZ AND BEYOND"

   

October 21, 2018

                               JUEDIENNE "JUJU" GORDON & A BAND                                 

 

 

 

Jazz at Meade is proud to present Juedienne "Juju" Gordon for the seventh concert of our 2018 concert series!  This is another exciting concert you don't want to miss! 

Juedinne "Juju" Gordon is a Musician and Vocalist who has been studying for the last 30 years.  As a composer, she has written and recorded more than 12 original songs and continues to write.  As a band leader, she can hold it down but always manages to recognize and promote all members.  She is a professional artist who puts her entire heart and soul into her music, always giving her audience the best performance she can give.  When you see and hear Juju, you will not forget her sultry sound, phrasing of lyrics and swinging style!   

Juju has worked with some of the best musicians in the jazz and pop community to include Lola Falana, Wayne Newton, the Righteous Brothers, Andy Williams, Leslie Uggams, Lou Rawls, Micheal McDonald, Sergio Mendes and many others.  She was invited to audition for "The Right Thing Tour" as one of Ray Charles' Pepsi Girls and then toured with him all around the world, playing in small and large concert venues across the U.S., Europe, Africa and Asia.   

Juju has composed numerous songs, including "Soul Searching," "I Got News for You," and "The Jazz Musician."  Her song "This is Love" has been recorded by other artists too; Sarah Vaughn sang it at the Blue Note, and before she became sick, she was planning to record the song.  Juju not only sings, but also plays the congas, which keeps the beat swinging.  A versatile performer, she is equally adept at performing in small combos or big bands. 

Now working steady gigs with great musicians in DC, Juju looks forward to writing and performing more of her music.  She laments that jazz, with its roots firmly in the soil of the U.S. is the least-supported form of music in the U.S. - while other countries appreciate and celebrate it far more.  For Juju, her entire career has been, and continues to be a journey to lift up the art of jazz in America. 

 Please come out on Sunday, October 21st and welcome back to the stage Juedienne "Juju" Gordon & A Band.
