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.

Her second release, Come Dream with Me (2001), came just a year later and landed atop the Billboard Jazz charts, while In the Sun, her 2002 release, earned a Grammy nomination for Vince Mendoza in the Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals category.

Her 2007 CD, Surrender, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz chart.

EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL EVENT

While this undoubtedly reflects her unfathomable range, it also goes a long way towards describing why this singing sorceress' musical magic defies any and all straitjackets of classification. She is just spellbindingly different, playing stunning classical guitar and writing songs that evoke the sound of fellow-Canadian Joni Mitchell. Her discovery of classical guitar just a few short years ago fuelled a love for all things stringed and resonant, plotting a roadmap for a territory inhabited by cello, violin and bass - each song a mini-symphonic stopping point. Here, her penchant for orchestral soul pop and jazz - and a blend of many influences in-between - could happily co-exist within a timeless and ethereal soundscape. Since her debut CD Little Green Bud two years ago, Ontario-born Chloe has performed 300 shows in 8 countries and her debut at The Crazy Coqs as part of the EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL coincides with the release of her first full length CD Break The Balance. Call for cover/minimum information.

LONDON: CHLOE CHARLES AT CRAZY COQS
EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL EVENT

Singer/ songwriter Chloe Charles will perform at THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888 ) on Friday & Saturday, November 22nd & 23rd at 8:00 pm.The press has likened Chloe Charles to everyone from Bjork to Billie Holiday, Amy Winehouse to Adele, Alicia Keys to Joni Mitchell. While this undoubtedly reflects her unfathomable range, it also goes a long way towards describing why this singing sorceress' musical magic defies any and all straitjackets of classification. She is just spellbindingly different, playing stunning classical guitar and writing songs that evoke the sound of fellow-Canadian Joni Mitchell. Her discovery of classical guitar just a few short years ago fuelled a love for all things stringed and resonant, plotting a roadmap for a territory inhabited by cello, violin and bass - each song a mini-symphonic stopping point. Here, her penchant for orchestral soul pop and jazz - and a blend of many influences in-between - could happily co-exist within a timeless and ethereal soundscape. Since her debut CD Little Green Bud two years ago, Ontario-born Chloe has performed 300 shows in 8 countries and her debut at The Crazy Coqs as part of the EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL coincides with the release of her first full length CD Break The Balance. Call for cover/minimum information.

Even as a child, Ignacio Pineiro sang in choirs and played drums with the Afro-Cuban cabildos. Then he formed his own first line up, Los Roncos, the Hoarse Ones, for which he composed choir music.

PART OF THE EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL

Etheridge rightly enjoys a glowing reputation throughout the jazz world and beyond, but take away the famous names from Stephane Grappelli to Nigel Kennedy, turn off Soft Machine, and John's solo concerts show a glorious guitarist who's inspired by the trinity of Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery and Hank Marvin. Few of his peers handle an electric instrument with such delicacy. And whilst Etheridge combines a jazzman's sophistication with a folksy sense of drama, his penchant for simple, unaffected melodic lines makes him ideal company in a venue as intimate as The Crazy Coqs, where he plays for three nights as part of the EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL. Call for cover/minimum information.

NYC: TOM PRINCIPATO BAND: A TRIBUTE TO ROBERT JOHNSON

The NYC: Tom Principato Band will present a Tribute to Robert Johnson at THE IRIDIUM JAZZ CLUB (1650 Broadway, NYC - 212-582-2121) on Wednesday, November 20th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 - August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer and musician. His landmark recordings from 1936-37 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy, poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend, including the Faustian myth that he sold his soul at a crossroads to achieve success. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime. It was only after the reissue of his recordings in 1961 on the LP King of the Delta Blues Singers that his work reached a wider audience. Johnson is now recognized as a master of the blues, particularly of the Mississippi Delta blues style. He is credited by many rock musicians as an important influence; Eric Clapton has called Johnson "the most important blues singer that ever lived." Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an "Early Influence" in their first induction ceremony in 1986. In 2003, David Fricke ranked Johnson fifth in Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. After 38+ years and a career that boasts 17 albums, 25 "Wammie" awards in numerous categories from the Washington, DC Music Assoc. and over 5,000 gigs which includes over 50 tours of Europe, Tom Principato has been taking his Indie infused eclectic roots mixture of Rock, Funk, Blues and Latin Sounds all over the World - all along the way leaving audiences wowed and slack jawed with his virtuoso talent. There is a $25 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

She started performing with her pianist father's jazz band when she was three and she has never stopped. Talk with Ringwald for even a short amount of time and it's clear her grasp of jazz and its history comes from a lifelong study of the form and the great singers who inspired her.

SAN FRANCISCO: BRAZILIAN LEGEND JORGE BEN JOR AT YOSHI'S

LONDON: JOHN ETHERIDGE AT CRAZY COQS
PART OF THE EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL

John Etheridge will perform at THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888) on Tuesday through Thursday, November 19th through 21st at 8:00 pm. Etheridge rightly enjoys a glowing reputation throughout the jazz world and beyond, but take away the famous names from Stephane Grappelli to Nigel Kennedy, turn off Soft Machine, and John's solo concerts show a glorious guitarist who's inspired by the trinity of Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery and Hank Marvin. Few of his peers handle an electric instrument with such delicacy. And whilst Etheridge combines a jazzman's sophistication with a folksy sense of drama, his penchant for simple, unaffected melodic lines makes him ideal company in a venue as intimate as The Crazy Coqs, where he plays for three nights as part of the EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL. Call for cover/minimum information.

NYC: QUEEN OF THE BEATNIKS, THE SONGS OF JUDY HENSKE

Queen of the Beatniks, The Songs of Judy Henske will be presented at CUTTING ROOM (44 East 32nd Street, NYC - 212-691-1900) on Tuesday, November 19th at 7:30 pm. Written and Performed by Meredith DiMenna the show features Musical Direction by Jason Binnick. The legendary Judy Henske is the best singer you've never heard of: from 1963 when she confounded audiences with her performance of "God Bless the Child" on the Judy Garland show, to 1966 when she riffed about whores on her Jack Nietzche-produced live album "The Death Defying Judy Henske", even after her psychedelic folk classic "Farewell Aldebaran", recorded for Frank Zappa's label in 1969. Judy was too many things to too few people to become the household name her considerable talents merited. A singer of unparalleled power and versatility, she was large in every sense. Standing six feet tall with a voice like a midwestern mash up of Etta James and Ethel Merman, she predated deep-throated alto rock divas like Janis Joplin, Grace Slick and Cher. Vocalist Meredith Dimenna, most recently heard on the breakout single "Legend in My Own Mind" from psychedelic soul band, THE STEPKIDS, is a Jackie-of-all-Trades performer who, like Henske, is comfortable across many styles and disciplines. Her band, OH, CASSIUS! is a 2013 CT Music Award Recipient in the category of "Best Other." There is a $20 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their original music, performing it as originally composed.
