Jazz bassist, vocalist and composer Katie Thiroux celebrates the release of her debut CD Introducing Katie Thiroux in concert on Wednesday, February 4 at Cafe 939 and streaming live at wgbo.org via The Checkout – Live at Berklee.

Thiroux received a Presidential Scholarship to Berklee in 2006, gaining the attention of alumni Terri Lyne Carrington and Branford Marsalis, and went on to perform festivals around the world as a sideman and leader. She established a quartet in her native Los Angeles featuring Graham Dechter, Matt Witek, and Roger Neumann, and just finished her debut album under the guidance of her mentor, John Clayton, and Grammy Award–winning coproducer Jeff Hamilton.

Dedicated to Ray Brown and inspired by a pair of the influential bassist’s stylish shoes she received as a gift, listen to "Ray's Kicks" from Introducing Katie Thiroux.
