Ingrid Racine

Friday, June 21 at 6PM | O&W Grove Stage

Genre: Jazz, Fusion

A2SF welcomes back Ann Arborite Ingrid Racine, a trumpeter, composer, and improviser steeped in the traditions of early jazz and Detroit bebop with global influences to expand her sound. At the University of Michigan, she studied improvisation with luminaries like Donald Walden, Ellen Rowe, Ingrid Jensen, and Geri Allen. She furthered her education performing in ensembles led by Wendell Harrison, Marion Hayden, and James Dapogny. Racine has worked with an eclectic array of ensembles, including the early jazz group Phil Ogilvie’s Rhythm Kings, Mady Kouyate’s Heat of Africa, the Detroit-based all-female jazz group Straight Ahead, and the post-Afrobeat group NOMO. Racine’s debut record as leader, Concentric Circles, is an elegant, confident exploration of modern jazz with a touch of fusion. She currently maintains an active schedule as both a sideman and leader throughout the Midwest, including her performance this summer at Top of the Park!
