Jazzmeia Horn musste ihre Tournee absagen. Davon betroffen ist auch ihr Auftritt im Wiener Konzerthaus. Wir freuen uns, dass Lakecia Benjamin den Termin übernommen hat.

Electrifying Presence

Undeniably dynamic, charismatic and virtuosic: saxophonist and bandleader Lakecia Benjamin. With her electrifying stage presence and fiery saxophone playing, she has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots, Macy Gray and many others. »Lakecia Benjamin plays jazz infused with the flavors of funk and soul – a crafty traditionalist who keeps up with the rhythms of the younger generation.« (The New Yorker) 
With her new program, »Pursuance: The Coltranes«, the New York native pays homage to two of the most influential jazz greats of the 20th and 21st centuries, Alice and John Coltrane. Benjamin admires the Coltranes and their collaboration, which fused them musically, spiritually and emotionally into a complete unit: »as an artist, it’s difficult to balance your personal life and career. This is a perfect example of a couple who had the best of both worlds – they took care of themselves, took care of the music, worked together, played together and they exemplified a completely functional, amazing relationship. You don’t need to sacrifice your art or your love – you can be one complete whole individual.«
