NYC: THE ENRICO RAVA QUINTET "TRIBE" AT BIRDLAND

Umbria Jazz and the Italian Ministry Of Foreign Affairs Present the Enrico Rava Quintet "Tribe" at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Sunday, June 9th with shows at 9:00 & 11:00 pm. Enrico Rava is undoubtedly the most well-known Italian jazz musician on a global level. Since his rapid rise to fame on the international scene in the mid sixties, he has been constantly involved in numerous original projects, and is considered one of the most important trumpet soloists on the European scene. His individuality on a musical and personal level make him hard to define, a musician who moves outside of traditional limits of genre and style, who refuses to adhere to convention. His style is immediately recognizable, his lyrical sound constantly sustained by an astonishing freshness of ideas which are revealed in all of his musical endeavours. Rava's vast discography includes some real gems of artistic (and perhaps historical) significance, including Quartet (ECM 1978) "Rava l'opera Va" (Label Bleu 1993), "Easy Living" (ECM 2004), "Tati" (ECM 2005) and "The Words and the Days" (ECM 2007) and the latest "New York Days" (ECM 2009). In addition to his work as leader, Rava has been an important collaborator of many of the most important Italian, European and American musicians. There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

The heart, soul and tears of the music that helped define Broadway in its golden age was inextricably linked to a magical (and sinister) several years in pre-WWII Berlin. It was a brief period when the creative strangers of the society - poets, playwrights, Jews, gays and artists of all sorts - were embraced and even exalted. And it's this smart, sexy, jazz-fueled, booze-soaked era that the astonishing, multi-award winning entertainer Mark Nadler brings to life in I'm a Stranger Here Myself - the deeply emotional undercurrents of a society about to break itself into a million pieces. I'm a Stranger Here Myself will play the following performance schedule: Tuesday at 7:00 pm, Wednesday through Friday at 8:00 pm, Saturday at 2:30 pm & 8:00 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $67.50.

Barbara Carroll's still evolving career as a jazz pianist began when she played her first New York engagement opposite Dizzy Gillespie's big band at the Downbeat Club in 1947. A thrilling if a trifle unsettling debut for a young female pianist from Worcester, Massachusetts who began playing the piano at five and who's family was wise enough to give her lessons that provided her with a basic knowledge of classical technique. In 1978, she was booked into the Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle hotel for a two week engagement - and stayed for twenty five years. It was at the Carlyle that she began to feature her singing as an integral part of her performances. Following her 25 years at the Carlyle, she is well into another long run in the famous Oak Room at New York's Algonquin Hotel, making a significant and successful effort to incorporate jazz playing into a cabaret venue. Other recent engagements have included concerts at Philharmonic Hall in Naples, Florida, the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, concerts at the Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts as well as twelve sold out performances at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

NYC: "I'M A STRANGER HERE MYSELF" RETURNS TO THE YORK THEATRE

By popular demand, THE YORK THEATRE at Saint Peter's Church (619 Lexington Avenue, NYC - 212-935-5820 ext. 25) has announced the return engagement of the new musical I'm a Stranger Here Myself, written and performed by Mark Nadler, with Franca Vercelloni on accordion, Jessica Tyler Wright on vioin and directed by David Schweizer. Performances will resume on Tuesday evening, May 28th at 7:00 pm and continue through Sunday afternoon, June 9th at 2:30 pm. The heart, soul and tears of the music that helped define Broadway in its golden age was inextricably linked to a magical (and sinister) several years in pre-WWII Berlin. It was a brief period when the creative strangers of the society - poets, playwrights, Jews, gays and artists of all sorts - were embraced and even exalted. And it's this smart, sexy, jazz-fueled, booze-soaked era that the astonishing, multi-award winning entertainer Mark Nadler brings to life in I'm a Stranger Here Myself - the deeply emotional undercurrents of a society about to break itself into a million pieces. I'm a Stranger Here Myself will play the following performance schedule: Tuesday at 7:00 pm, Wednesday through Friday at 8:00 pm, Saturday at 2:30 pm & 8:00 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $67.50.

DJ Logic, Jaleel Shaw on alto saxophone, James Hurt on keyboard, Lamont McCain on electric bass and Justin Tyson on drums. Beka Gochiashvili was born in Tbilisi, Georgia on March 11, 1996. He was just two and half years old, barely reaching his upright piano claviature, when he suddenly surprised his father by playing some of Scott Joplin's Ragtime tunes he heard on radio. Then at age 4 he watched Standards II by Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette - the video recording that triggered his devotion and passion for this sophisticated trio and their performance style. By age five, Beka was playing several piano compositions already. In 2002 Valeri, his father, a musician himself, took him to Zurab Ramishvili, the most prominent jazz piano professor in Georgia. The child's ability to play a few complicated jazz compositions impressed him. Notwithstanding, he advised them to enroll Beka in classical music classes at a school headed by Tengiz Chitaishvili. By the efforts of Condoleeza Rice, Mr. Harrison and John Teft, former US Ambassador in Georgia, Beka and Mr. Ramishvili travelled to New York in 2008 to participate in auditions at the Juilliard School and at the Manhattan School of Music. Not surprisingly, Beka was accepted in both schools. In July 2009 with the support of Nikoloz Rurua, then Minister of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia and great jazz aficionado, Beka travelled to participate in the prestigious Bosendorfer Solo Jazz Piano competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland, where he was awarded 1st prize.

King, Frank Sinatra, Simon & Garfunkel, Ray Charles, Peggy Lee, Aretha Franklin and Barbra Streisand.
