Valerie Nelson and Beadazzled, 2002 Central St., continue to add to the texture of our neighborhood by hosting a series of intimate jazz performances within the friendly confines of the popular beading and jewelry store. On Monday, February 8, from 7-9 pm, the Rose Colella Trio will be serving up their smooth and sometimes sultry interpretations, while select jewelry is on sale. What better way to craft a homemade valentine bracelet than to the accompaniment of some live jazz? A donation of $8 is suggested, more than worth it.
Rose Colella, a Chicago-based jazz vocalist, is a graduate of Roosevelt University with a BM in Jazz Voice, and currently teaches Jazz Voice at the Chicago Academy for the Arts. The Rose Colella Trio released their first album entitled "Small Hours" in June 2009.
