"Sleigh Bells Swing!" Jazz Party with Elena Gilliam & The Michael Le Van Trio

with The Michael Le Van Trio

Honored as a Living Legend of Jazz by Living Legends Inc. in Los Angeles, California, Elena Gilliam is an astonishing jazz vocalist with a rare depth of natural talent. Her level of performance is widely applauded as analogous with such jazz greats as Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and the like. Her unique rich, eloquent tones and brilliant phrasing take you on a musical journey of jazz, swing, standards, latin and blues. Elena charms you with her animated "scatting” that exemplifies her musical versatility, while she cleverly connects you to song lyrics. Her confidence, enthusiasm and love for music shine through every performance. Her extraordinary sound is indeed a treat for anyone who appreciates a true songstress.

The Michael Le Van Trio

Michael has performed extensively in both classical and jazz venues and with musicians such as Barbara Morrison, David Enos, John Ferraro, Putter Smith, Kevin Tullius, Ramon Banda, Tim Pleasant, Jeff Littleton, Peter Buck, Chuck Manning, Bruce Lett, Luther Hughes, Kendall Kaye, Dustin Haner, Jotty Johnson, and Isla Eckinjer.

His trio has played to the acclaim of music critics and record reviewers, who have written widely about Michael's uniquely lyrical and harmonically subtle style.
