KJ Denhert’s performance was recorded at The Falcon
on January 21, 2011 by Lynn Segarra / Dreamspirit Video
Multiple award-winning Urban Folk Jazz artist – KJ Denhert – performed with her extraordinary “New York Unit”, to celebrate her Album No. 9 (2010).
This is definitely an album of nines for Denhert: nine songs, nine
musicians, and recorded over a nine-month time span. With omens like that it promises to be good, and it delivers. KJ co-produced her Album Number 9, supported by a strong cadre of players, including longtime band members Mamadou Ba , (Harry Belafonte, Regina Carter) on bass and drummer Ray Levier. Saxophonist, Aaron Heick (Richard Bona, Chaka Khan, and Sting) has remained a regular while balancing a busy schedule that paired him with
Sting on the recording “Englishman in New York.”
KJ defines herself as an “urban folk and jazz” artist, often stepping
outside of that box to explore other influences. Her fine songwriting
stands out in front at every performance, along with her smoky rich alto and stellar guitar playing.
KJ has performed in Italy, Egypt, St. Barths, Nepal, Turkey, Germany, Switzerland and Alaska, and held a residency in NYC’s The 55 Bar.
Denhert is powerful in voice, with lyrics full of intelligent insight, and
her musicianship is impeccable. Her eclectic yet unified performances reach out to audiences without compromising her music and beliefs. She performs the unusual feat of being both highly individual and quite accessible.
