Her music is uniquely hers; she doesn't explain it for herself. She doesn't have a TV, she isn't a voting member of NARAS. She is at once a big success and a well-kept secret. She will turn down most offers, choosing instead to study, compose, practice the piano, polish a language, or tend to her family and garden.

Paris is her musical second home. Call for cover/minimum information.

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

Chambers, Herbert, & Ellis will perform at THE GARDENIA (7066 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA - 323-467-7444) on Wednesday, September 4th at 9:00 pm. This is the final show of this highly acclaimed series. 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.

The word juncal defines those "aficionados" of the Flamenco art form who inhabited "cafe cantantes," where food, drink, music and dance sustained the angst and celebration of Andalusian and Gypsy life. But Juncal Street is no ordinary Flamenco show. Six incredible artists perform together in Juncal Street, all maestros of their art forms. They constitute a multicultural medley of North American, French, Spanish and Gypsies performers, including award-winning dancers Manuel Gutierrez and Fanny Ara, internationally-esteemed guitarist Jason McGuire, vocalist Jose Cortes, and percussion and bass by Joey Heredia and Tim Lefebvre.

Throughout the 1920's Kitty Witless and Dr.Dan Von Dandy toured speakeasies and burlesque theaters through the United States as THE VAUDEVILLIANS, wowing audiences with their edgy, original music. Unfortunately, one day, tragedy struck. While touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow - instantly freezing them alive. But thanks to global warming, they recently thawed out only to discover, that pop artists of various decades had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Much to their shock and chagrin, songs including "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (which was originally about the woman's Suffragette movement), and "Drop it Like it's Hot" (which was originally about the invention of the electric iron) had become hits for lesser artists. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their original music, performing it as originally composed.

NYC: THE KONRAD PASZKUDZKI TRIO AT DIZZY'S

The Konrad Paszkudzki Trio (Konrad Paszkudzki, piano; Hassan Shakur, double bass; and Dag Markhus, drums) will perform at DIZZY'S CLUB AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER (33 West 60th Street, NYC - 212-258-9595) on Monday, September 2nd with shows at 7:30 & 9:30 pm. With a nonchalant grace and a musical conception based on eloquence and sophistication, the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio captivates ardent lovers of the jazz idiom and the Tin Pan Alley tradition. The attitude with which they perform is one of infectious swing and confident passion, as is evident on their recently released debut record. The sound is classic; and influences that can be felt and heard in their music are Frank Sinatra, Nelson Riddle, and the classic trios of Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner and Ahmad Jamal. There is a $25 cover.
