Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always try to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 11th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain!

NJ: BARBARA COOK RETURNS TO McCARTER THEATRE

A 2011 Kennedy Center honoree and one of popular music's greatest soprano voices, Barbara Cook will return to McCARTER THEATRE (91 University Place, Princeton, NJ - 609-258-2787 - ) on Wednesday, November 7th at 7:30 pm. Ms. Cook's impressive career spans over 50 years from Broadway ingenue to legendary recording artist. McCarter Theatre Center in will be celebrating Barbara Cook's 85th birthday through an awe-inspiring performance of Broadway and American Songbook classics. Barbara Cook's silvery soprano, purity of tone, and warm presence has delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. After being considered "Broadway's favorite ingenue" during the heyday of the Broadway musical, Ms. Cook then launched a second career as a concert and recording artist soaring from one professional peak to another. Whether on the stages of major international venues throughout the world or in the intimate setting of New York's Cafe Carlyle or Feinstein's at the Regency, Barbara Cook's popularity continues to thrive - as evidenced by her 1997 birthday concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Albert Hall in London, a succession of 6 triumphant returns to Carnegie Hall where she made a legendary solo concert debut in 1975, and an ever-growing mantle of honors including the Tony, Grammy, Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, her citation as a Living New York Landmark and her induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame.

L.A.: CHAMBERS, HERBERT, & ELLIS AT THE GARDENIA

Chambers, Herbert, & Ellis will perform at THE GARDENIA (7066 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA - 323-467-7444) on Wednesday, November 7th at 9:00 pm. Pierre Chambers, Lisa Herbert, and Mitch Ellis have struck a mother lode of unique and exhilarating musical material through exhuming, creatively re-working, and re-inventing works of legendary jazz artists through the nearly lost art of "vocalese" - assigning what would generally be considered instrumental riffs to the human voice. Their talents spring directly from their dads: bass player Paul Chambers played on and off with Miles Davis and John Coltrane in the '50s; bassist Mort Herbert toured with the Louis Armstrong All-Stars in the '50s and '60s; and guitarist Herb Ellis played with the Oscar Peterson trio for many years and established a very successful solo career spanning decades. Creating an impact recalling The Manhattan Transfer, the group's repertoire pays homage to the vocal treatments of Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross, many of which were themselves based on Ellington or Basie big band arrangements, and features expanded treatments of original vocalese and jazz harmonies in musical arrangements played, written, or made famous by, their own fathers. Ensconced at The Gardenia the first Wednesday of every month, with each show spanking new, they are becoming increasingly popular as word of mouth spreads ... and the "buzz" surrounding them is well-deserved. Piano support for this month's Halloween special is supplied by Richard Eames, with Tim Emmons on bass. Call for cover/minimum information.
