Mindi Abair returns to headline this year’s Cape Coral Sounds of Jazz and Blues on Saturday, March 25 at a new venue, the Coral Oak Golf Course.
The Sounds of Jazz and Blues is the premier musical event in Cape Coral. The Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department is proud to bring some of the best talents for a night of musical magic, food, and fun. Join in the citywide celebration of jazz and blues music.
During her remarkable 21-year recording career, saxophonist/vocalist Mindi Abair has garnered two Grammy nominations, recorded with some of the biggest names in music, and built a substantial following among jazz and blues audiences with her soaring melodies and powerhouse style.
In 2014, Mindi received her first Grammy nomination in the Best Pop Instrumental Album category for Summer Horns with Dave Koz, Richard Elliot and Gerald Albright, followed by a 2015 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for her solo LP Wild Heart featuring the late Gregg Allman, Joe Perry, Trombone Shorty, Booker T. Jones, Keb Mo and Max Weinberg.
You might know her as the featured saxophonist on American Idol, sitting in with Paul Shaffer on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, or from moonlighting on tour with Duran Duran or Aerosmith.
Blues man Damon Fowler is also scheduled to perform that night.
