Since establishing herself in New York City, she has worked with such luminaries as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Steve Turre, the legendary Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter; and, in addition to her own band, can currently be seen with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band & Dynasty Band, the T.S.Monk Group, and Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project. With five first-rate albums to her credit, Sung's next recording, Anthem For A New Day, is her debut on Concord Records. An exciting step forward in Sung's evolution, Anthem displays a modern artistry and music that swings with a funky intellect while seamlessly integrating her jazz & classical worlds. A bright future is certainly in store for this exciting artist whom Wynton Marsalis named as one of his 'Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch!' http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=162225 Flushing Town Hall true DD/MM/YYYY
