All That (Women's) Jazz!

Maysa and Jessy J.

The words smooth, cool and jazzy come to mind when describing singer Maysa, who will headline the Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival at Sundown concert this weekend. Maysa is a classically trained soloist with hits that topped Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz and R&B charts. She’ll reboot the R&B classic “Love Won’t Let Me Wait” and will be joined by singer songwriter Jessy J. during the concert to be held at sundown Jan. 28 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Palm Springs.
