The Front Porch and Charlottesville Jazz Society present an evening with Monika Herzig’s SHEroes. The jazz supergroup SHEroes, convened by pianist-composer Monika Herzig for a third recording by distinguished improvising virtuosos who are all, not just incidentally, women. The group has toured Europe, Egypt, and the US and will present music from their latest recording Eternal Dance (Savant). Monika’s deft, always supportive pianism and her warm, joyous, practical sensibility marks every tune with SHEroes.
