When it comes to Boston singer-saxophonist-composer-arranger Grace Kelly, people seem divided into two groups: those who marvel at her youth and rapid rise, and those who praise her “first-class jazz musicianship.”
With 11 albums to her credit and accolades including “Best National Jazz Act 2012,” Kelly counts Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr. and Ann Hampton Callaway as collaborators and fans. Join the artist and her masterful band for an Oneonta premiere: the May 15 concert marks Kelly’s 23rd birthday.
