Phoenix Amplified Jazz Festival

Day 1

Featuring Music Icon Rachelle Ferrell, Grammy Nominated Guitarist Doc Powell and NuJazz saxophonist J.White

Rachelle Ferrell is a recent arrival on the contemporary jazz scene, but her visibility on the pop / urban contemporary scene has boosted her audience's interest in her jazz recordings. Ferrell got started singing in the second grade at age six. This no doubt contributed to the eventual development of her startling six-and-change octave range. Ferrell’s debut, First Instrument, was released in 1990 in Japan, five years prior to its US release. Her unique take on now-standards like Sam Cooke’s "You Send Me", Cole Porter’s "What Is This Thing Called Love", and Rodgers & Hart’s "My Funny Valentine", captured the hearts and souls of the Japanese jazz buying public… Rachelle Ferrell has made her mark not as a straight-ahead jazz singer and pianist, but as a crossover artist whose equally at home with urban contemporary pop, gospel, classical music and jazz.

Doc Powell has cemented a sterling legacy as a quintessential guitarist and Grammy-Award nominated solo artist, songwriter and producer. His chameleon-like talents have contributed to the recordings and live concert events/tours by some of the giants and luminaries in contemporary jazz, rhythm & blues, and gospel music including; the late "Pavarotti of Soul," Luther Vandross, (spanning 15 years), the late Prince, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Kirk Franklin and others.

*VIP Meet and Greet (Price Level 1) includes an oppurtunity to meet Sheila E, a lanyard, event poster & early entry into theatre

Featuring Music Icon Shelia E, Hip-Hop/Jazz Violinist Josh Vietti and Smooth Jazz Saxophonist Jazmin Ghent 

A world-class drummer, percussionist, singer, songwriter, entertainer, author, humanitarian, mentor, actress—Sheila E. is a dynamic public figure who has been driven by a steadfast inner rhythm since the day she was born. "Before I had language, I had rhythm," she writes in her recently-published memoir, The Beat Of My Own Drum. "I learned it before I learned my mother tongue." After lending her vocals on Prince’s hit "Erotic City", the two worked together to produce her first album, The Glamorous Life. Unlike any other ’80s artist, Sheila combined her Latin, jazz, R&B, pop, and rock influences to create her own unique style for the album. The album’s title track made the U.S. top 10, with the entire album reaching number 28 on the U.S. Billboard 200.

A musical powerhouse, Sheila has worked with some of the most influential musical acts over the past five decades: Ringo Starr, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Beyoncé, Herbie Hancock, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie, Gloria Estefan, George Duke, and more. She’s recorded 7 solo albums, acted in several films, and pursued philanthropic projects that are near to her heart. These include co-founding the Elevate Hope Foundation and Elevate Oakland.
