ArtsBeatLA: Interview with Connie Han on jazz debut CRIME ZONE

“Connie Han strides onto the stage at Vibrato Grill in sky-high stiletto boots and skin-tight black leather. She props her cell phone at the deep end of her Yamaha piano keyboard and presses ‘record.’ Pretty soon the dynamic and expressive hands of this petite, slim woman are racing and gliding with alacrity. Burning up the keyboard, she snarls and grimaces as she creates extraordinary rhythms and melodies. The only thing restrained about this jazz artist are the two bobby pins in her extra long, dark hair.

At 22, Han is such a ferocious performer and composer that she’s already been referred to as a ‘young lioness.’ The moniker suits her perfectly.

Han’s professional career began when she was 17 with her independently produced 2015 album, The Richard Rodgers Songbook.

Now she’s launched her original compositions with her debut album, CRIME ZONE,which has just been released by Mack Avenue Records. With it, Han has created an edgy blend of modern and traditional jazz.”
