N.Y.STATE: JERRY GRETZINGER SINGS ABOUT WOMEN IN HIS LIFE

Jerry Gretzinger is back with a vengeance, starring on Washington County's MAINSTAGE AT FORT SALEM THEATER (11 East Broadway, Salem, NY - 518-854-9200) as a once successful singer whose popularity is waning, in the new musical, Women in My Life, running for two weekends, Fridays through Sundays, July 11th through 20th slightly deviating from the Fort's normal schedule, with 8:00 pm shows on July 11th, 12th, and 18th, and matinees at 2:00 pm on July 13th, 19th and 20th. As Jerry Jerome, Gretzinger balances his career with his ex-wife, former girl friend, and the women with whom he lives but fails to commit. Tough enough he has to deal with them in his personal life, he employs them all as his backup group, which means he also deals with them dealing with one another. As the ex, Susan Cicarelli-Caputo, a fixture at the former NYSTI and Capital Rep, brings her years of theater experience to play against type as a sometimes bitter woman struggling with her own inability to separate from the man she has divorced. The former girl friend, played by Heather-Liz Copps, who sang opposite Gretzinger last year in the Not-So-Common Players' Music Man, observes from a distance as Jerry Jerome gives his ego needed strokes by hitting on the new girl in the backup group, played by Gretzinger's real-life fiancee, Erin Weaver. Women in My Life, the creation of Fort Salem's artistic director, Jay Kerr, contains serious autobiographical overtones. Call for cover/minimum information.

NYC: DIZZY GILLESPIE ALL STAR BIG BAND AT THE BLUE NOTE

The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Tuesday through Sunday, July 8th through 13th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. History has produced its share of great artists and great people - John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles because as a composer and arranger, a big band was the ultimate vehicle for self-expression. Given that the majority of his career took place after 1950 when the big band era was over, it's especially notable that Dizzy Gillespie continued to create brilliant music using the grand-scale formats of jazz big band and orchestra right up to the end of his life in 1993. The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and Alumni All-Star group (small group) is the direct descendant of these ventures, and happily, the tradition lives on, nurtured by Gillespie alumni and executive director, producer, and bassist John Lee. There is a $20-$30 cover.

The former girl friend, played by Heather-Liz Copps, who sang opposite Gretzinger last year in the Not-So-Common Players' Music Man, observes from a distance as Jerry Jerome gives his ego needed strokes by hitting on the new girl in the backup group, played by Gretzinger's real-life fiancee, Erin Weaver. Women in My Life, the creation of Fort Salem's artistic director, Jay Kerr, contains serious autobiographical overtones. Call for cover/minimum information.

CABARET IN THE JAZZ CLUBS FOR NEW YORK CITY FOR THIS DATE
Please Note: We will only list events we deem as cabaret-style in the Jazz Clubs starting March 1, 2015



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, June 14th, 21st & 28th 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.

NYC: LOSTON HARRIS QUARTET WITH SPECIAL GUEST MONICA BEHAN

The Loston Harris Quartet with Special Guest Monica Behan will perform at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Tuesday through Saturday, July 8th through 13th with shows at 8:30 & 11:00 pm. Loston Harris' piano playing has been described as percussive but incredibly fluid, his vocals, suave and contemporary. For more than a decade Loston has headlined the legendary Bemelmans Bar in the Carlyle Hotel, a spot previously held by Bobby Short, Eartha Kitt, Elaine Stritch, John Pizzarelli and the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ). Loston and his quartet - Ian Hendrickson-Smith (tenor sax), Gianluca Renzi (bass), Clarence Penn (drums) - along with very special guest vocalist Monica Behan, perform swinging arrangements of timeless standards from the Great American Songbook, selections from his recent CD "Swingfully Yours". There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

NYC: DIZZY GILLESPIE ALL STAR BIG BAND AT THE BLUE NOTE

The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Tuesday through Sunday, July 8th through 13th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. History has produced its share of great artists and great people - John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles because as a composer and arranger, a big band was the ultimate vehicle for self-expression. Given that the majority of his career took place after 1950 when the big band era was over, it's especially notable that Dizzy Gillespie continued to create brilliant music using the grand-scale formats of jazz big band and orchestra right up to the end of his life in 1993. The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and Alumni All-Star group (small group) is the direct descendant of these ventures, and happily, the tradition lives on, nurtured by Gillespie alumni and executive director, producer, and bassist John Lee. There is a $20-$30 cover.

NYC: TOM WOPAT AT THE IRIDIUM

Celebrated actor and vocalist Tom Wopat will perform at THE IRIDIUM JAZZ CLUB (1650 Broadway, NYC - 212-582-2121) with a new show "Tom Wopat Swings the Rat Pack" for four performances only on Friday & Saturday, July 11th & 12th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Wopat first came to prominence as original star of the iconic TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard" and has gone on to a far-reaching career and as a two-time Tony Award nominated stage actor and critically-acclaimed jazz singer. The Iridium program will feature selections from his latest album "I've Got Your Number," in addition to classics associated with vocal legends Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin. Highlights include "The Good Life," "I Won't Dance," "I Fall In Love Too Easily," "Too Darn Hot," "Call Me Irresponsible" and more. There is a $35-$55 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

NYC: RUSSELL MALONE AT DIZZY'S

As the ex, Susan Cicarelli-Caputo, a fixture at the former NYSTI and Capital Rep, brings her years of theater experience to play against type as a sometimes bitter woman struggling with her own inability to separate from the man she has divorced. The former girl friend, played by Heather-Liz Copps, who sang opposite Gretzinger last year in the Not-So-Common Players' Music Man, observes from a distance as Jerry Jerome gives his ego needed strokes by hitting on the new girl in the backup group, played by Gretzinger's real-life fiancee, Erin Weaver. Women in My Life, the creation of Fort Salem's artistic director, Jay Kerr, contains serious autobiographical overtones. Call for cover/minimum information.

History has produced its share of great artists and great people - John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles because as a composer and arranger, a big band was the ultimate vehicle for self-expression. Given that the majority of his career took place after 1950 when the big band era was over, it's especially notable that Dizzy Gillespie continued to create brilliant music using the grand-scale formats of jazz big band and orchestra right up to the end of his life in 1993. The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and Alumni All-Star group (small group) is the direct descendant of these ventures, and happily, the tradition lives on, nurtured by Gillespie alumni and executive director, producer, and bassist John Lee.

NYC: DIZZY GILLESPIE ALL STAR BIG BAND AT THE BLUE NOTE

History has produced its share of great artists and great people - John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles because as a composer and arranger, a big band was the ultimate vehicle for self-expression. Given that the majority of his career took place after 1950 when the big band era was over, it's especially notable that Dizzy Gillespie continued to create brilliant music using the grand-scale formats of jazz big band and orchestra right up to the end of his life in 1993. The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and Alumni All-Star group (small group) is the direct descendant of these ventures, and happily, the tradition lives on, nurtured by Gillespie alumni and executive director, producer, and bassist John Lee. There is a $20-$30 cover.

NYC: DIZZY GILLESPIE ALL STAR BIG BAND AT THE BLUE NOTE

The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Tuesday through Sunday, July 8th through 13th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. History has produced its share of great artists and great people - John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration. As a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work. For Dizzy Gillespie, playing in a small combo was never enough. His artistry compelled him to seek and to create larger ensembles because as a composer and arranger, a big band was the ultimate vehicle for self-expression. Given that the majority of his career took place after 1950 when the big band era was over, it's especially notable that Dizzy Gillespie continued to create brilliant music using the grand-scale formats of jazz big band and orchestra right up to the end of his life in 1993. The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and Alumni All-Star group (small group) is the direct descendant of these ventures, and happily, the tradition lives on, nurtured by Gillespie alumni and executive director, producer, and bassist John Lee. There is a $20-$30 cover.

SAN FRANCISCO: TEEDRA MOSES AT YOSHI'S

Teedra Moses will perform at YOSHI'S (1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-655-5600) on Monday, July 7th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Teedra Moses was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana to a gospel singing mother, Shirley Moses. She later moved to Los Angeles with her mother and three siblings after her parents' separation. Prior to becoming a recording artist, Moses worked with her best friend Nonja McKenzie as an assistant wardrobe stylist for artists such as Will Smith, Kelis, R. Kelly, and No Doubt. Never once approaching any of the clients, it wasn't until after the death of her mother that Moses decided to follow her heart and begin making music. Following this epiphany, Moses teamed up with producer, Paul Poli and signed with the then Number 1 Indie Record Label, TVT Records, in 2002, to release her debut album Complex Simplicity in August 2004. Complex Simplicity included fourteen tracks all self-penned by Moses with dominant production by Poli; which lead to the well deserved executive production credit by both Moses & Poli. In addition to executive producing and penning all the lyrics on her own project, Moses has written songs for other artists including Christina Milian, Mary J. Blige, Macy Gray, and a host of others. As a Grammy-Nominated Songwriter and BMI Songwriter of the year, for 2 consecutive years, Teedra Moses has used music to inspire others for over 10 years. With over 10 years of live performance, selling out intimate venues around the world, it's only fitting that Teedra Moses has partnered with the incomparable Martell brand for a 10 City Tour in support of the sophomore release Cognac & Conversations scheduled to be released Summer 2014.

CABARET EVENTS IN LONDON FOR THIS DATE



LONDON: LUCY DIXON AND HOWARD SAMUELS AT THE CRAZY COQS

Lucy Dixon (Cats, Follies, Metropolis, Stomp, and an ex Bluebell showgirl) and Howard Samuels (The Rocky Horror Show, Tonight's the Night, A Catered Affair) and soon to be heard as the voice of Jack the Ripper in the upcoming animation film from Luc Besson, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart,will perform at THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888) on Monday, July 7th at 8:00 pm. The pair first met in the Sondheim musical Company, worked together again in the National Theatre's production of Frogs and then worked with director Linda Marlowe on the highly acclaimed original production of Invade my Privacy. Tonight they reunite to bring an entirely new collection of material by the genius that is Fran Landesman. Once again directed by Linda Marlowe and backed by the glorious piano playing of Dave Gordon, who combines a career as a classical musician with that of a brilliant improvising keyboard artist and composer and has, amongst other achievements, some 20 CD's to his credit - this promises to be a night to remember. Fran Landesman was a beat poet, songwriter and lifelong bohemian until her death in July 2011. She occupies the ironic territory between Dorothy Parker and Stephen Sondheim. Her frank, funky piercing insights into family affairs, tangled romances and ultimate issues take no prisoners. Her work combines pathos and humour and glows with the tough wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of riding in fast convertibles and hanging out in smoky bars. Call for cover/minimum information.
