Berklee Summer Concert SeriesKatie Thiroux Trio
Los Angeles-bred bassist and vocalist Katie Thiroux brings her trio to Cambridge. The Katie Thiroux Trio has performed from coast to coast at venues such as the Kitano, Cachaca Jazz Club, the Lighthouse, Catalina's Jazz Club.
Influenced by the invigorating styles of Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Bill Evans and Anita O'Day, the Katie Thiroux Quartet swings hard every time. Thiroux's acrobatic vocal arrangements and instrumentals have established the group's unique style, which is why its leader is regarded as one of today's most exceptional young talents.
Thiroux is also an on-call sideman. She was called in to perform at the 2009 Münster Jazz Festival, joining Mosaic, a group led by drummer Terri Lyne Carrington and also featuring Geri Allen and Ingrid Jensen.
Other notable performances include the Monterey, Newport Beach, and Vail jazz festivals. Thiroux studies at Berklee on the full-ride Presidential Scholarship.
