Jazz at Kitano, December 9th!

Hey there…. Kitano is one of the nicest jazz clubs in NYC and I am thrilled to once again be bringing my trio here.  Info is listed in the schedule.  See you there!

Kitano was a blast…..

There’s so much to be thankful for- the fantastic musicians, the beautiful place, the appreciative people listening, the history of music, the creativeness of Jazz….  I am grateful.  Now, what’s next?  I recorded with a couple of fantastic musicians recently and will be getting that together.  I’m working on my own music and putting it into a show.  So much more.  Please check the website and thank you!


Could not be more psyched…..

I have gotten two of the most fantastic musicians to join the JF Trio at Kitano on Friday, October 6th.  That is Steve Williams on drums (drummer on the most beautiful Shirley Horn album “Here’s To Life”) and Andy McKee on bass (who’s played with everyone of note).  Yours truly on piano, vocals and tune choices.  This is going to be a super special night.  Might be a good idea to save the date and make some reservations. 212-885-7000.  I am truly psyched.

Kitano roundin’ the bend….

Firstly, thank you to all that came out to Mezzrow.  What  blast we had!  Full houses both sets with some truly happy faces out there.  I enjoyed the duo with Marco so much.  And now, October 6th back at Kitano.  I’m not sure of who will be with me yet, but mark the date.   Have a great day now!



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.
