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. CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE MEMBER EVENT

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. CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE MEMBER EVENT

The eight-time Grammy-nominated artist has also developed a wide reputation as an expert educator with a genuine interest in the up-and-comers of the jazz world. Thus the Frank DiBussolo Group was born. It has assembled a well-chosen program of standards from the swing era that best showcases each member's strongest colors. From the cool greens of the bandleader's picking and vocalist Tiffany Grochowski's swatch of lavenders to bassist Steven Liu's earthen tones and drummer Bryan Tuk's cobalt timekeeping, there is much to soak in. The group's approach exemplifies what is already inherent to these songs, an inner soul that adapts to any configuration and context.

MANHATTAN: BARBARA CARROLL SATURDAYS AT BIRDLAND

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.

Known for his inspired arrangements, inventive grooves and hummable melodies, Ben draws from the jazz tradition and a range of influences from rock and folk to 20th century classical and world music traditions, seamlessly blending them into a cinematic, cohesive whole. In addition to his acclaimed groups, "Man Size Safe," "Peace Pipe," and "Medicine Wheel," Ben has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Mamadou Diabate, Lee Konitz, Joe Lovano, Joey Arias, tap dancers Jimmy Slide and Gregory Hines, and US Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky.

At any given show, on any given record, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling.

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: DAVID BASSE NYC CD RELEASE FOR "THE HERO AND THE LOVER ... "

David Basse will celebrate the release of his new CD "The Hero and the Lover ... " at SMALL'S JAZZ CLUB (183 West 10th Street, NYC) on Friday, July 18th with sets from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. David Basse began his professional music career in 1969, when his parents trusted the neighbors to keep an eye on him while they vacationed in California. Basse seized that opportunity and turned it into a six-night gig at a local cocktail lounge with a band named "Carroll Lee and the Moonlighters". This gig was the first small step in mastering many styles of drumming and subsequently learning to sing from the drumset. In 1974, he landed in Kansas City, after gigs in Denver, Nashville, New Orleans, Winnipeg Manitoba, a trip to LA and various teenaged forays throughout the United States. In August of 1982 David Basse began his focus on jazz. He made a tough decision: attend his tenth high school class reunion, or take a much-needed gig at City Light, then a brand new Kansas City nightclub located at 7425 Broadway. Little did he know that one night stand with vocalist Pricilla Bowman would turn into almost seven years, five nights a week at the nightclub and an opportunity to rub elbows with politicians, community leaders, and to jam with jazz royalty such as Johnny Griffin, Richie Cole, and Les McCann. The regular members of the band often included Claude "Fiddler" Williams, Carmell Jones, and Basse's newfound mentor Ahmed Alaadeen. Today, Basse's ninth recording, "The Hero and the Lover ... " is a culmination of over forty years of trial and error, serendipitous miscalculation and a powerful and undying love of art and music. It is a testament to the tenacity that it takes to survive in the face of an international recession and continue to create worthwhile art. Call for cover/minimum information.

In 1977, The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans began showcasing a traditional Crescent City brass band. It was a joining of two proud, but antiquated, traditions at the time: social and pleasure clubs dated back over a century to a time when black southerners could rarely afford life insurance, and the clubs would provide proper funeral arrangements. Brass bands, early predecessors of jazz as we know it, would often follow the funeral procession playing somber dirges, then once the family of the deceased was out of earshot, burst into jubilant dance tunes as casual onlookers danced in the streets. By the late '70s, few of either existed. The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club decided to assemble this group as a house band, and over the course of these early gigs, the seven-member ensemble adopted the venue's name: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Thirty-five years later, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous music machine, whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances. They have revitalized the brass band in New Orleans and around the world, progressing from local parties, clubs, baseball games and festivals in their early years to touring nearly constantly in the U.S. and in over 30 other countries on five continents. The Dirty Dozen have been featured guests on albums by artists including David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Buckwheat Zydeco, Dave Matthews Band, Modest Mouse, Widespread Panic, and the Black Crowes.

His CD, Cry By the Light of the Moon, contains inventive arrangements of classic and modern standards as well as his own original songs created over the years, with lyrics that continue the traditions of the great story-teller songwriters like Harry Chapin and James Taylor, including his very first song: "Tell Me That I'm a Fool," written while he was still in high school.

Audiences can always expect spontaneity and heart from a Mingo set, where the band intermingles fresh takes on songs from their extensive catalog with their twist on a few select soul standards. What started as a casual jam session with friends blossomed over time into an impressive eight-piece ensemble that evoked fond memories of listening to soul music as a kid.

NYC: DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND AT THE BLUE NOTE

In 1977, The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans began showcasing a traditional Crescent City brass band. It was a joining of two proud, but antiquated, traditions at the time: social and pleasure clubs dated back over a century to a time when black southerners could rarely afford life insurance, and the clubs would provide proper funeral arrangements. Brass bands, early predecessors of jazz as we know it, would often follow the funeral procession playing somber dirges, then once the family of the deceased was out of earshot, burst into jubilant dance tunes as casual onlookers danced in the streets. By the late '70s, few of either existed. The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club decided to assemble this group as a house band, and over the course of these early gigs, the seven-member ensemble adopted the venue's name: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Thirty-five years later, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous music machine, whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances. They have revitalized the brass band in New Orleans and around the world, progressing from local parties, clubs, baseball games and festivals in their early years to touring nearly constantly in the U.S. and in over 30 other countries on five continents. The Dirty Dozen have been featured guests on albums by artists including David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Buckwheat Zydeco, Dave Matthews Band, Modest Mouse, Widespread Panic, and the Black Crowes. There is a $20-$35 cover.
