American jazz vocalist Lezlie Harrisons returns to The Living Room of Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit from December 14 where she will jazz up Bangkok’s festive season until December 31.

She’ll again by accompanied by the Randy Cannon Group featuring pianist Randy, drummer Willard Dyson, and leading bass players Therdsak Wongvichien and Alex Sergeenko.

Harrisons’ repertoire is deeply influenced by the soul music of her formative years in Harlem and the gospel music she sang as a child in church. Regarded as one of New York City’s finest jazz vocalists, she still draws deeply on her soul roots of Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Sly Stone, and Johnny Hartman. 

With her burnished, soulful alto voice, striking beauty and distinctive blend of jazz, classic ’70s soul, and her own compositions, she is a fixture on the New York jazz scene and has performed with luminaries such as Roy Hargrove, Dr Lonnie Smith, Johnny O’Neal and Grady Tate. She also opened for Cassandra Wilson at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival.

In Bangkok, Harrisons will also perform at the Christmas Eve Grande Jazz Dinner Buffet at Rossini’s and The Living Room on Sunday December 24 and at the adults-only New Year’s Eve Jazz Countdown Party at The Living Room on December 31. 

Advance reservation is highly recommended to ensure entry to this unforgettable evening at Bangkok’s premier live jazz venue.

Admission fee is Bt300 per person. Guests spending Bt1,000 at any of the hotel’s dining venues will have the fee waived.
