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.

Hey there…..

I hope all is well with you.  Recently the JF Trio played at Kitano Jazz in Manhattan to a completely sold out room.  Thank you to everyone that was there and to those who joined us in spirit.  These days I’ve been getting called pretty often to play at Arturo’s on Houston.  This is a fun place albeit a bit noisy.  Anyway, check the schedule and come on by if you can.  There is no cover.  I have a few more dates on the boat, The Bateaux and some things at The Carnegie Club.  Plus, I’ll be up in Connecticut soon at the end of the month with The Greg Wall Quartet.  Things keep on moving on.  Alright, you take care now.

Kitano is coming up…..

Hey Folks.  Hope all is well.  I’ve got a few exciting things coming up.  First and foremost, Jazz at Kitano on September 7th.  This is one of the best jazz rooms in town and I have a great trio with me.  These fellows are a blast from my past….like comfy shoes: Doug Weiss on bass & Brian Floody on drums.  And, by golly, I’m gonna do whatever I gosh darned feel like doing.  It will be fun.  Make some reservations 212-885-7119.  Also, I’ve got my usual haunts although I’ll be away a nice chunk of this month so check the calendar.  On the last Wednesday in August I’ll be back at The Montauk Library for a solo concert.  Hope to see you soon.

Summer is….

moving right along.  I hope you are all enjoying it.  If you are around and about and feel like it, take a ride on the Bateaux.  It’s nice!  See you soon.

Movin’ right along…..

I had a fun little solo hit at Mezzrow and a great time playing with The Band of Bones.  Coming up, tonight (June 29th) I’m at Swing 46 for some dancin’.  This should be fun.  And tomorrow night, I’m up in Westport, Connecticut playing with Greg Wall’s Quartet.  Should be fun.  Happy July 4th everyone.
