MEMBER DISCOUNT - $5 OFF THE COVER

Wells Hanley's arrangements draw inspiration from the classical idiom, with references to Brahms and Rachmaninov, creating a unique and luxurious harmonic landscape for lyrics that allow deep and hidden emotions to fly free. The evening, which is directed by award winning director, Gerry Geddes, takes it title from Jason Robert Brown's masterpiece "Someone to Fall Back On", and explores the universal need to be "someone". The centerpiece is The Matthew Shepard Suite, a collection of songs by various composers that honors the memory of the young gay man who was brutally beaten and hung on a fence to die in Laramie in 1998. This terrible crime was the focus of national attention and helped to establish hate-crime laws throughout the country.

Stanley Clarke was among the first bassists in history to double on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity and was the first bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. Exploding into the jazz world in 1971, he soon landed jobs with famous bandleaders like Horace Silver, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Gil Evans, and Chick Corea, with whom he formed the seminal fusion group Return to Forever. Clarke has won literally every major award available to a bass player: Grammys, Emmys, every readers' poll out there, all the critics' polls, and numerous Gold and Platinum certifications. He garnered his most recent Grammy Awards for his 2010 album The Stanley Clarke Band and for Return to Forever's 2011 release Forever.

NYC: GINGER BAKER AT THE IRIDIUM

Peter Edward "Ginger" Baker, an English drummer, best known for playing with Cream and Blind Faith, will perform at IRIDIUM JAZZ CLUB (1650 Broadway, NYC - 212-582-2121) on Wednesday through Sunday, October 9th through 13th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Baker is also known for his numerous associations with World music, mainly the use of African influences. He has also had other collaborations with Gary Moore, Hawkwind and Public Image Ltd. Baker's drumming attracted attention for its flamboyance, showmanship and his use of two bass drums instead of the conventional single bass kick drum (following a similar set-up used by Louie Bellson during his days with Duke Ellington). Although a firmly established rock drummer and praised as "Rock's first superstar drummer", he prefers being called a jazz drummer. Baker's influence has extended to drummers of both genres, including Billy Cobham, Peter Criss, Bill Ward, Ian Paice, Nick Mason, and John Bonham. While at times performing in a similar way to Keith Moon from The Who, Baker also employs a more restrained style influenced by the British jazz groups he heard during the late 1950s and early 1960s. In his early days as a drummer, he performed lengthy drum solos, the best known being the five-minute drum solo "Toad" from Cream's debut album Fresh Cream (1966). He is also noted for using a variety of other percussion instruments and for his application of African rhythms. He would often emphasize the flam, a drum rudiment in which both sticks attack the drumhead at almost the same time, giving a heavy thunderous sound. There is a $50-$60 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

NYC: KENNY BARRON PLATINUM BAND AT DIZZY'S

NEA Jazz Master and nine-time GRAMMY® Award nominee, pianist Kenny Barron will perform at DIZZY'S CLUB AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER (33 West 60th Street, NYC - 212-258-9595) on Wednesday through Sunday, October 9th through 13th with shows at 7:30 & 9:30 pm to celebrate his 70th birthday with an exquisite repertoire of original music, including modern classics that span his work with Stan Getz, Yusef Lateef, James Moody, and Dizzy Gillespie. Praised endlessly for both his sensitivity and virtuosity, Barron is undisputedly one of the top jazz pianists in the world, and Dizzy's is thrilled to feature the Dizzy's debut of his "youthful," but highly credited Platinum Band. This is just one stop on the group's Platinum Tour, so don't miss the opportunity to catch them while they're in town at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

D.C.: ROY HARGROVE AT BLUES ALLEY

Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Roy Hargrove will perform at BLUES ALLEY (1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141) on Tuesday through Sunday, October 8th through 13th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Hargrove has firmly established himself as among the premier players in jazz and beyond. The Dallas born trumpeter has never been short of hipness. Mentored as a teenager by Wynton Marsalis, he has a flaring tone and a lyrical warmth; his fusing of traditional and contemporary music turns his gigs into exuberant jazz history lessons. With a band including the excellent New Orleans-born pianist Sullivan Fortner, and formidable young drummer Quincy Phillips, Hargrove's snappy phrase turns and vibrato-laden long notes, pared with alto saxist Justin Robinson's fluent improvisations, embellish his usual selection of swingers and Latin shuffles. Call for cover/minimum information.

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, at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Stanley Clarke was among the first bassists in history to double on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity and was the first bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. Exploding into the jazz world in 1971, he soon landed jobs with famous bandleaders like Horace Silver, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Gil Evans, and Chick Corea, with whom he formed the seminal fusion group Return to Forever. Clarke has won literally every major award available to a bass player: Grammys, Emmys, every readers' poll out there, all the critics' polls, and numerous Gold and Platinum certifications. He garnered his most recent Grammy Awards for his 2010 album The Stanley Clarke Band and for Return to Forever's 2011 release Forever. For this show Clarke is joined by Michael Mitchell on drums and Beka Gochiashvili on piano. The HARLEM QUARTET (Ilmar Gavilan, violin; Melissa White, violin; Jaime Amador, viola; Matthew Zalkind, cello) is currently the resident ensemble in the New England Conservatory of Music's Professional String Quartet Program.

NYC: GINGER BAKER AT THE IRIDIUM

Peter Edward "Ginger" Baker, an English drummer, best known for playing with Cream and Blind Faith, will perform at IRIDIUM JAZZ CLUB (1650 Broadway, NYC - 212-582-2121) on Wednesday through Sunday, October 9th through 13th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Baker is also known for his numerous associations with World music, mainly the use of African influences. He has also had other collaborations with Gary Moore, Hawkwind and Public Image Ltd. Baker's drumming attracted attention for its flamboyance, showmanship and his use of two bass drums instead of the conventional single bass kick drum (following a similar set-up used by Louie Bellson during his days with Duke Ellington). Although a firmly established rock drummer and praised as "Rock's first superstar drummer", he prefers being called a jazz drummer. Baker's influence has extended to drummers of both genres, including Billy Cobham, Peter Criss, Bill Ward, Ian Paice, Nick Mason, and John Bonham. While at times performing in a similar way to Keith Moon from The Who, Baker also employs a more restrained style influenced by the British jazz groups he heard during the late 1950s and early 1960s. In his early days as a drummer, he performed lengthy drum solos, the best known being the five-minute drum solo "Toad" from Cream's debut album Fresh Cream (1966). He is also noted for using a variety of other percussion instruments and for his application of African rhythms. He would often emphasize the flam, a drum rudiment in which both sticks attack the drumhead at almost the same time, giving a heavy thunderous sound. There is a $50-$60 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

Exploding into the jazz world in 1971, he soon landed jobs with famous bandleaders like Horace Silver, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Gil Evans, and Chick Corea, with whom he formed the seminal fusion group Return to Forever. Clarke has won literally every major award available to a bass player: Grammys, Emmys, every readers' poll out there, all the critics' polls, and numerous Gold and Platinum certifications.

NYC: GINGER BAKER AT THE IRIDIUM

Baker is also known for his numerous associations with World music, mainly the use of African influences. He has also had other collaborations with Gary Moore, Hawkwind and Public Image Ltd. Baker's drumming attracted attention for its flamboyance, showmanship and his use of two bass drums instead of the conventional single bass kick drum (following a similar set-up used by Louie Bellson during his days with Duke Ellington). Although a firmly established rock drummer and praised as "Rock's first superstar drummer", he prefers being called a jazz drummer. Baker's influence has extended to drummers of both genres, including Billy Cobham, Peter Criss, Bill Ward, Ian Paice, Nick Mason, and John Bonham. While at times performing in a similar way to Keith Moon from The Who, Baker also employs a more restrained style influenced by the British jazz groups he heard during the late 1950s and early 1960s. In his early days as a drummer, he performed lengthy drum solos, the best known being the five-minute drum solo "Toad" from Cream's debut album Fresh Cream (1966). He is also noted for using a variety of other percussion instruments and for his application of African rhythms. He would often emphasize the flam, a drum rudiment in which both sticks attack the drumhead at almost the same time, giving a heavy thunderous sound. There is a $50-$60 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

Sin Twisters is a show with a devilish spoonerism of a title. On the streets of Manhattan and Los Angeles, these vibrant and savvy veterans of over two dozen Broadway productions, as well as countless films and television shows, are constantly being mistaken for each other, although one is at least three inches taller, and one is a blonde and the other, a redhead. Yet, during their respective careers, they have both tackled some of the same parts, including the plum role of Sally Bowles in the original Broadway production of Cabaret. Sin Twisters joyfully celebrates these similarities but also gives full voice to these two remarkable performers' differences as artists and as women. This show is a must for anyone who loves theater lore and cherishes the enduring bonds of friendship. There is a $35-$45 cover plus a $25 food/drink minimum.

Exploding into the jazz world in 1971, he soon landed jobs with famous bandleaders like Horace Silver, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Gil Evans, and Chick Corea, with whom he formed the seminal fusion group Return to Forever. Clarke has won literally every major award available to a bass player: Grammys, Emmys, every readers' poll out there, all the critics' polls, and numerous Gold and Platinum certifications. He garnered his most recent Grammy Awards for his 2010 album The Stanley Clarke Band and for Return to Forever's 2011 release Forever.

NYC: GINGER BAKER AT THE IRIDIUM

Baker is also known for his numerous associations with World music, mainly the use of African influences. He has also had other collaborations with Gary Moore, Hawkwind and Public Image Ltd. Baker's drumming attracted attention for its flamboyance, showmanship and his use of two bass drums instead of the conventional single bass kick drum (following a similar set-up used by Louie Bellson during his days with Duke Ellington). Although a firmly established rock drummer and praised as "Rock's first superstar drummer", he prefers being called a jazz drummer. Baker's influence has extended to drummers of both genres, including Billy Cobham, Peter Criss, Bill Ward, Ian Paice, Nick Mason, and John Bonham. While at times performing in a similar way to Keith Moon from The Who, Baker also employs a more restrained style influenced by the British jazz groups he heard during the late 1950s and early 1960s. In his early days as a drummer, he performed lengthy drum solos, the best known being the five-minute drum solo "Toad" from Cream's debut album Fresh Cream (1966). He is also noted for using a variety of other percussion instruments and for his application of African rhythms. He would often emphasize the flam, a drum rudiment in which both sticks attack the drumhead at almost the same time, giving a heavy thunderous sound. There is a $50-$60 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

Unfazed by taking to the spotlight after a sober Amy Winehouse or joining Roy Ayers live for 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine', there's no wonder her powerful soul voice has attracted rave reviews from numerous national and international publications and praise from fans as diverse as Gilles Peterson, David Byrne, Dennis Coffey, Massive Attack's Daddy G, and Groove Armada.

SAN FRANCISCO: YOSHI'S PRESENTS THE WINERY DOGS

YOSHI'S (1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-655-5600) presents The Winery Dogs on Wednesday, October 9th at 10:30 pm.

But The Winery Dogs are so much more than a supergroup. Supergroups are usually short-lived entities composed of gifted players that jam out for little while and then quickly record with the hopes of catching lightning in a bottle. Moreover, they're often the sum of their collective parts. That's certainly not the case with The Winery Dogs, a cohesive, well-rounded classic-sounding trio with blazing songs that defy expectation. The group's self-titled debut is filled with straightforward rock and roll inspired by some of their favorite bands, and their music transcends any of the styles they're best known for. There is a $30 cover.
