JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Charles's Turner and Brianna Thomas – celebrating the album "Meet Me at Minton's".

Described as a modern day Hoagy Carmichael, Grammy-nominated pianist, composer and impresario JC Hopkins has cultivated an multigenerational ensemble of jazz titans to produce “Meet Me At Minton’s"; a compilation of classic big band hits amongst a string of scintillating originals. Featuring jazz’s poet laureate Jon Hendricks, alongside Grammy-award winning vocalist Andy Bey, Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition winner Jazzmeia Horn and co-founder of legendary funk duo Sister Sledge, Kathy Sledge, the aptly titled “Meet Me At Minton’s” displays a powerhouse of esteemed vocalists, ranging from emerging prodigies to accomplished veterans of jazz. To mark the momentous release of this historically sentimental album, The JC Hopkins Biggish Band will be returning to the Slipper Room in New York City on Wednesday, August 2nd at 7pm. Home to jazz diva Norah Jones and pop queen, Lady Gaga, The Slipper Room can also be considered the home of the JC Hopkins Biggish Band, as it’s where they launched their original residency over a decade ago.
