Festival International de Jazz de Montreal presents

Ranee Lee Quintet

Featuring String Quartet and other special guests

Singer, actress, author… Ranee Lee is versatility itself. A gifted interpretive singer, THE voice of Montreal jazz brought Billie Holiday to life onstage at the Festival and on the screen, and has collaborated with the likes of Clark Terry, Herb Ellis, Milt Hinton and Oliver Jones. Winner of the 2010 Juno for the album Lives Upstairs, she presents her new one — out this spring on Justin Time Records — with a quintet accompanied by a string quartet!

Montreal Jazz FestivalRanked as the world’s largest jazz festival by Guinness World Records, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has been synonymous with a passion for music for over three decades. Every year, the metropolis welcomes global music fans to 10 days of jazz-centric celebration, where fans of all types of jazz-related music rub shoulders with aficionados of the genre in its purest form. The Festival hosts some 30 countries, 3,000 musicians and public entertainers, 1,000 concerts and activities—two-thirds of them free – in 15 concert halls and on 8 outdoor stages, welcoming more than 2 million visitors to the city, from noon to midnight! And it all happens in the heart of Montreal’s downtown core, in an area off-limits to car traffic! There’s no doubt – Montreal is the heartbeat of Planet Jazz!
