He recorded two modestly successful albums and had a minor hit with a cover of "A Love Supreme" before releasing his breakout 1991 album A Dream Fulfilled. It was a marvelous disc that showed Downing not only possessed a fine baritone voice but that he was also was an excellent song stylist, deftly handling such diverse songs as War's "The World Is A Ghetto" and Paul Davis's "I Go Crazy" and providing a stunning, definitive version of Angela Bofill's "I Try." Both the "I Try" single and the album hit the Urban top 25, and critical acclaim for the disc abounded. There is a $55-$80 cover.

NYC: BARBARA CARROLL SATURDAYS AT BIRDLAND

NYC Cabaret/Jazz icon Barbara Carroll performs at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Saturdays, February 8th, 15th & 22nd at 6:00 pm. She is joined by her long-time bassist Jay Leonhart. 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. There is a $30 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

After almost fifteen years of the group's separation, Quest reemerged in 2005, with the release of "Redemption: Live in Europe", which documented highlights from two live performances in Switzerland and Paris. With this album, the group reestablished themselves as an innovative and intelligent force in jazz, composed of musicians who are able to pick up as if they never disbanded. This group continues to prove that their musical communication is as unwavering as the creativity pulsing through each player. There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

In his two decade recording career, the Brooklyn native has carved for himself a solid career as one of the leading purveyors of unapologetic, unabashed romantic music. And while this has not translated to crossover success - or even to broad urban radio success - it has gained for Downing a solid musical legacy and a rabidly loyal following. Downing had his first national exposure as a popular backing vocalist in the '80s before signing with Island Records. He recorded two modestly successful albums and had a minor hit with a cover of "A Love Supreme" before releasing his breakout 1991 album A Dream Fulfilled. It was a marvelous disc that showed Downing not only possessed a fine baritone voice but that he was also was an excellent song stylist, deftly handling such diverse songs as War's "The World Is A Ghetto" and Paul Davis's "I Go Crazy" and providing a stunning, definitive version of Angela Bofill's "I Try." Both the "I Try" single and the album hit the Urban top 25, and critical acclaim for the disc abounded. There is a $55-$80 cover.


SAN FRANCISCO: DJ AFRIKA BAMBAATAA AT YOSHI'S

Among the members who became minor rap luminaries were DJs Red Alert, Jazzy Jay, and Whiz Kid, as well as Afrika Islam, who went on to work with Ice-T. Open dance floor. Call for cover/minimum information.


SAN FRANCISCO: PAULA WEST IN EXTENDED RUN AT YOSHI'S

See website for showtimes. Known for her rich, powerful contralto voice, West will present an all-new show featuring an eclectic range of songs - from memorable jazz standards by Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hart, to contemporary American classics by Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. Accompanied by her four-piece band, West will take San Francisco audiences on a musical journey through the ages. Born into a Marine Corps family in San Diego, California, Paula West was initially exposed to classical music. It wasn't until college that West began listening to jazz singers such as Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn. After college, West moved to San Francisco, unsure of what she wanted to do with her life. Buying old records from thrift shops, she studied them and then began singing classes. As she became more secure in her talent, she ventured into jam sessions, places where an open mike gave her a chance to perform before an audience. It was at one of these sessions that she met a pianist who would join her in the climb to her own musical identity and her musical success. His name was Ken Muir, and he continues as her accompanist today. West went on to study with Faith Winthrop, developing her unique tone and delivery. She learned how to sustain a note without a vibrato, which is now almost a Paula West trademark. Tickets are $35-$50 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

NYC: HENRY WAGONS AT JOE'S PUB

Henry Wagons, unanimously lauded as one of Australia's greatest and most entertaining performers, will perform at JOE'S PUB at THE PUBLIC THEATRE (425 Lafayette Street, NYC - 212-967-7555) on Friday, February 28th at 7:30 pm. Along with his rare charisma, he offers heavy doses of stomping outlaw rock and irresistible crooning. His live show is a performance like no other. In early 2013 Henry, and his band of misfits, crowded around a polished table in Nashville Tennessee above the factory floor of the United Records Pressing Plant. It was there they recorded a haunting, and at times humorous 'Upstairs at United' vinyl only release. This is the 9th volume in this strictly analogue series, immaculately curated by United Records, which will be for sale at this show. The album was recorded in a room with a rich history, which looks like its still recovering from a massive weekend in the mid 60s with many of the Motown legends to Wayne Newton to Hank Williams Jr. all having spent time soaking into the walls. Released in November 2013, Henry presents 7 songs on Upstairs at United, including an Elvis Presley and a Waylon Jennings cover; all intricately mixed and performed live, straight to 2 track tape, then pressed too heavy as hell 12" vinyl spinning at 45rpm, never having touched the digital realm. Having spent the last few years touring with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Justin Townes Earle, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zero's, Calexico, Bill Callahan, Will Oldham, Okkervil River, John Hiatt and more it is safe to say that Wagons is a road-hardened formidable live act. There is a $12 cover.

The Hot Sardines will perform at JOE'S PUB at THE PUBLIC THEATRE (425 Lafayette Street, NYC - 212-967-7555) on Friday, March 28th at 9:30 pm. Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a Fats Waller-style stride-piano virtuoso, and tie the whole thing together with a magnetic, one-of-the-boys frontwoman whose voice recalls another era, and you have the Hot Sardines, an NYC outfit (with a tap dancer) that's been called consistently electrifying. ) The Sardine sound - wartime Paris via New Orleans, or the other way around - is steeped in the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Waller used to make: Straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. Pianist-bandleader Evan "Bibs" Palazzo and Paris-born singerMiz Elizabeth (who owe their collaboration to meeting via Craigslist) describe their band as "born in the 1920s, but raised in the '00s," reflecting a philosophy that hot jazz, dixieland and Tin Pan Alley tunes are all pop music, not historical artifact to be handled with kid gloves. In 2013 The Sardines headlined the TCM Classic Cruise, played Great GoogaMooga Festival, the Spiegeltent and the Blue Note Jazz festival, and continue at their regular haunt The Standard Hotel. There is a $15 cover.

Accompanied by her four-piece band, West will take San Francisco audiences on a musical journey through the ages. Born into a Marine Corps family in San Diego, California, Paula West was initially exposed to classical music. It wasn't until college that West began listening to jazz singers such as Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn. After college, West moved to San Francisco, unsure of what she wanted to do with her life. Buying old records from thrift shops, she studied them and then began singing classes. As she became more secure in her talent, she ventured into jam sessions, places where an open mike gave her a chance to perform before an audience. It was at one of these sessions that she met a pianist who would join her in the climb to her own musical identity and her musical success. His name was Ken Muir, and he continues as her accompanist today. West went on to study with Faith Winthrop, developing her unique tone and delivery. She learned how to sustain a note without a vibrato, which is now almost a Paula West trademark. Tickets are $35-$50 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

Blackstreet went on to make chart-topping music that has nestled itself in the R&B catalogs of the must haves.

NYC: GREG LASWELL CD RELEASE AT JOE'S PUB

Greg Laswell will perform at JOE'S PUB at THE PUBLIC THEATRE (425 Lafayette Street, NYC - 212-967-7555) on Thursday, February 27th at 7:30 & 9:30 pm. It's been seven years now since Greg Laswell released his debut album. Four records later, many things in his life have changed, including many of the songs themselves. Some changed from playing solo shows; phrasing and tempo became more and more improvised in songs like 'What a Day' and 'Embrace Me'. Other songs changed from simply from his desire to give the fans something new; 'Comes and Goes In Waves' and 'How the Day Sounds' were completely deconstructed and played on acoustic guitar with a cello. Others he changed on purpose, because the song meanings had changed over time; 'High and Low' is something that happened to him then, not something that is happening to him now, which allows him to sing it differently. So Greg took three weeks, and (re)recorded a few of the more popular songs off each record. Musically, he imposed two rules: no drums, and less than four tracks per song (allowing him to comp string sections onto one track). He also mixed in two newcomers to the gang. One is a song called 'December' and the second is a cover of 'It's a Wonderful Life' by Sparklehorse. There is a $20 cover.

Accompanied by her four-piece band, West will take San Francisco audiences on a musical journey through the ages. Born into a Marine Corps family in San Diego, California, Paula West was initially exposed to classical music. It wasn't until college that West began listening to jazz singers such as Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn. After college, West moved to San Francisco, unsure of what she wanted to do with her life. Buying old records from thrift shops, she studied them and then began singing classes. As she became more secure in her talent, she ventured into jam sessions, places where an open mike gave her a chance to perform before an audience. It was at one of these sessions that she met a pianist who would join her in the climb to her own musical identity and her musical success. His name was Ken Muir, and he continues as her accompanist today. West went on to study with Faith Winthrop, developing her unique tone and delivery. She learned how to sustain a note without a vibrato, which is now almost a Paula West trademark. Tickets are $35-$50 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

"You've Got a Friend: A Tribute to Joshua Wolff" will be presented at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) on Wednesday, February 26th at 7:00 pm. Vocalists Michelle Walker, Whitney James, and Hilary Gardner met for the first time at the hospital bedside of their dear friend and collaborator, jazz pianist Joshua Wolff, in May 2013. Joshua had just been diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer, and he tragically passed away just one week later at 39 years old. Joshua left behind a loving community of musicians and friends determined to keep his memory alive. To that end, Michelle, Whitney, and Hilary recently joined forces to record a full-length album of songs centered on themes of love, loss, friendship and faith. Inspired by Carole King's famous refrain, the songs encompass all four seasons: "winter, spring, summer or fall/all you've got to do is call/and I'll be there ... You've Got a Friend." It's fitting that Michelle, Whitney, and Hilary are bringing their "You've Got a Friend" project to the Metropolitan Room, as Joshua Wolff frequently performed there as a pianist and vocalist. The evening promises to be a poignant and heartfelt celebration of Joshua's musical life and legacy. Proceeds from the album will benefit the Joshua Wolff Memorial Music Education fund, providing free music education and scholarships to children in Moore and Cumberland counties, North Carolina.
