The Front Porch and Charlottesville Jazz Society present an evening with Monika Herzig’s SHEroes.The jazz supergroup of the year is right here – SHEroes, convened by pianist-composer Monika Herzig for a second recording by distinguished improvising virtuosos who are all, not just incidentally, women. Monika’s deft, always supportive pianism and her warm, joyous, practical sensibility marks every tune with SHEroes. As a Doctor of Music Education at Indiana University, she is a Senior Lecturer focusing on Arts Management in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. She is the biographer of IU’s late Doctor David Baker (IU Press, 2011) and recently released “Experiencing Chick Corea” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017).
