24-year old Veronica Swift is a prodigy vocalist, having recorded her first album at age 9, finished second in the 2015 Monk competition and headlined jazz festivals before she could purchase alcohol. Her phrasing is strong and sturdy, well rooted in the tradition and she throws in the right amount of swing; but she’s still trying to find “her” voice. Two separate sets at 5 and 8:30 p.m.
