Grace Kelly Asian American Jazz Musician JadeLuckClub Jade Luck Club the future of jazz saxophone Brookline famousGrace Kelly is not who you think she is. Not an Hermès It bag. Not a princess or an actress. This Grace Kelly is just 19-years-old and setting the jazz world on fire. She hails from Brookline, Massachusetts. Grace won Glamour Magazine Top 10 College Women: The Musician.  “Her dream: “To collaborate with Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Sting. And to win a Grammy!” Hmmm…. someone should hook her up with Sarah Hicks! Seriously.

Have you heard her play? What other outstanding Asian American musicians do you love? Please leave a comment.

You can catch her here.

    Thanks Mia for the recommendation. I just purchased her recent album “Mood Changes”. With just few clicks the whole album is now on my PC, laptop, phone, and SSG 10.1.
