Support JJ’s Birrieria who will be on-site through the evening performance serving culturally rich and seductively savory Jalisco food. Unfurl a blanket on our comfortable terraced lawn and grab a bottle of wine and allow the grooves to captivate you.

Striking a sublime balance of playful creativity and sultry artistry, contemporary jazz vocalist and songwriter, Alex Baird, exhibits a distinctive personality that is certain to bewitch the soul. Her career has been highlighted by the release of her debut album, Lemon Tree, on which she explores vibrant re-imaginings of jazz standards and iconic pop tunes, as well as stunning originals reminiscent of artists such as Norah Jones and Ella Fitzgerald. Her album has already gained acclaim with a critic describing the title track as “offering a stunning summation of her jazz chops, starting with the delightful original composition, and continuing through a well-crafted scat solo and a fine ensemble chorus.” Alex displays a talent at writing vocalese, encouraging the art of emotive improvisation and continues the tradition of reinvigorating jazz throughout history. With a style that sits at the forefront of contemporary vocal jazz, Alex Baird takes her place alongside the modern singers who are reviving the jazz idiom.
