November 15th, POLYRHYTHMS Third Sunday Jazz Workshop & Matinee Series brings vocalist Lila Ammons featuring the Daniel Leahy Trio, with Ron Wilson on bass and Mac Santiago on drums, to the Redstone Room, in the RME on the corner of 2nd   & Main in Davenport.   A Jazz Demystifying Workshop begins at 3 pmand is followed by a matinee concert from 6 – 8 pm.

Chicago native Lila Ammons has been singing since age three, when she also started to teach herself piano. She moved on to formal piano and later violin studies, and performed in school plays and musicals. After earning a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance at the University of Michigan, Lila moved to New York where she earned her Master’s in Vocal Performance from the Manhattan School of Music.

Ammons has forged a path in music that at once honors tradition and her own expressive impulses. Beginning her vocal career in opera houses and concert halls, she later returned to her familial roots in jazz and the classic blues tradition. The granddaughter of Boogie Woogie master pianist, Albert Ammons, and niece of tenor sax titan, Gene “Jug” Ammons, Lila proves that one can indeed make a successful leap from classical voice to jazz singer. With her classic sense of time, inventive phrasing, spot-on intonation, and emotive storytelling, Ammons continues to attract new audiences with her nuanced vocal jazz narratives, a respect for traditional blues and jazz idioms, and an unpredictability that delights. “Lila can make a common standard be artfully uncommon, and brings charm and passion to tunes that deserve more attention.” – Jazz Police  

As a singer, she gained popular and critical acclaim touring Europe and Brazil with German pianist Axel Zwingenberger. As a feature vocalist with the ABC&D of Boogie Woogie Quartet with Zwingenberger and Charlie Watts, Ammons has won fans performing at some of the Midwest’s and Europe’s largest Blues, and Jazz Fests. Lila’s love of singing jazz has thrived in her home-base of the Twin Cities through recordings and live performances alike.

For an audience of six or 600, Lila Ammons gives a performance worthy of Birdland or Carnegie Hall. The legacy of Albert and Gene lives on in good company, and will be on full display Sunday night at Polyrhythms Third Sunday Jazz Series.
