Tuesday, August 8th “Mezzrow” will be my jazz club home and  you are sincerely invited!  I am psyched.  Mezzrow is one of my most favorite jazz clubs. It reminds me of the old Bradley’s in that it’s comfortable and to the point- that is, folks care about the music- in an intelligent, good vibe kind of way.  So I will be following up my recent hit at Kitano (which was a blast) at Mezzrow and I’ll have the amazing Marco Panascia with me on bass.  Sets at 8 and 9:30 with a $20 cover charge that will also open the doors to you at “Smalls” across the street.  I’ve played at Mezzrow for the early solo set, but this is my first time in “the name spot.”  Fun, promise!  Be well now.

Kitano and Mezzrow…..

My cup runneth over!  I hope you’ll come to both of these places.  They both are top jazz clubs in the city and I am psyched to play them.  Friday, June 9th for Kitano is coming right around.  I’ll have Rusty Holloway on bass and Paul Wells on drums.  We will be recording the week before so it will be super on point for Kitano.  Then, Tuesday June 10th I will debut in “the name spot” at Mezzrow with a duo.  Super fun.  I promise.  Make some reservations if you will.  Have a great day now!

Ain’t it nice…..

When the club owner asks you to come and play?!  I remember when I was recognized at the Blue Note (and let in under the cover) ’cause I was playing there with the big band on Sundays pretty regularly.  I damned near put that on my resume.  Anyway, thank you Gino.  Gino has asked me to return with my trio to Kitano on June 9th.    If you can be there, I promise you a good time.  I know how that sounds, but you know what I mean!  Check the schedule for the details. See you soon.

I’m welcoming in Spring….

It’s been a little bit slow for moi.  Unusual, I’d have to say.  And that’s a good thing ’cause we don’t like it that way! But, I have not been wasting my time.  There are so many musical projects that I am working on.  I will keep you posted on what’s happening and I wish you the most fantastic season.

Hi Folks….

There’s a lot of good stuff going on for moi and I hope you’ll join me.  First of all, I’m back at Jazz at Kitano with the JF Trio on Friday, December 30th.  This is a beautiful, listening room with a top notch piano, so I’m a happy girl there and I promise you’ll be happy too.  Come celebrate New Year’s Eve a night early without getting beer thrown on your head!  Speaking of New Year’s Eve, it looks like I’ll be at the Empire Hotel in a new room there with a small band.  More details coming soon on that.  On Tuesday, December 15th I’ll be at The Bahai Center in the village playing some Sinatra hits interspersed with Arnold Jay Smith’s talks and videos of the man.  This will be an interesting night no doubt.  And, I’m so happy to be back playing for the last work-week of December in the lobby of the Empire State Building.  I have to tell you, it’s not a real sit-down and enjoy the music situation, but if you are in the hood, come say hello and get an inside of view of this very cool NY landmark.  Oh yes, there’s a few more boat trips on the horizon left too.  See you soon.
