Keita's dreams, however, were too strong to be shattered. Keita has extended musical frontiers and carved out a distinctive musical voice, in which rock, funk and jazz combine with the deepest West African griot traditions.

Brighter Side of Day is a theatrical production about Billie Holiday whose soulful unique voice is still considered to be one of the greatest jazz voices of all time. It was created to showcase the softer and lighter side of Billie that affected so many, in a way we've never seen or felt! Brighter Side of Day will introduce another side of Billie Holiday, the side that enhances her creativity and vivacity and helps us to understand why she was called "The Lady!" The Brighter Side of Day takes you back to the 1940's, with horns (are there any other instruments relevant to 40s only), atmosphere and Billie. For those who remember the times, it will be amazingly reminiscent, for those born in different era's, you will be pleasantly surprised how uplifting, fun and relevant '40s music can be. You don't want to miss it. There is a $32.50 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

NYC: RUTHLESS! THE MUSICAL WITH SOPHIA ANNE CARUSO

'Ruthless! The Musical' starring Sophia Anne Caruso, will be presented at STAGE 72 (158 West 72nd Street, NYC - 212-362-2590) will open on Friday, September 5th and will play on Fridays, Saturdays & Mondays at 7:00 pm through September 22nd. Like the role she will be playing in a new production of "Ruthless!," the cult-hit musical, Sophia Anne Caruso is a young actress who will do anything to get the part. The triple threat tween will follow in the tap shoes of Laura Bell Bundy ("Hairspray," "Legally Blonde") Britney Spears and Natalie Portman. Before they became stars, all three young actors were cast as the diabolically talented Tina Denmark. Sophia tracked down the creators of the show while they were trying out rewrites for a new Connecticut production, writing to tell them that after having been cast as Tina in regional theatre, one of the principle actors suffered a fatal heart attack during the dress rehearsal. The show never opened. An audition was arranged and the rest is going to be history! Caruso, who appeared with Bernadette Peters in the NBC musical series Smash, will be taking the stage this September in an intimate staged concert production of the award-winning musical that will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Joining Ms. Caruso on stage will be composer, Marvin Laird, who will step into the high heels of the infamous theatrical dame of mystery, Sylvia St. Croix. Because the project is benefiting a cause so close to their hearts, the co-creators want to make this outing particularly memorable, and so for 3 of the 9 performances, Paley will join Laird on stage, reprising his performance as the demented eight-year-old diva. Other cast members include, Kim Maresca as Judy Denmark, Katie Sparer as Miss Thorn/Emily Block, Delaney Arizala as Louise Lerman/Eve•and Rita McKenzie as Lita Encore.

CABARET IN THE JAZZ CLUBS FOR NEW YORK CITY FOR THIS DATE

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, September 9th, 20th & 27th 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.

A frequent collaborator with such notables as Steve Coleman, Don Byron, Ravi Coltrane and Fred Hersch, Alessi has also recorded seven albums as a leader including the critically acclaimed "Baida" (Quartet) on ECM Records. As an educator, Alessi has been a member of the faculty of the Eastman School of Music and is currently the founder and director of the School for Improvisational Music.

Ever since his breakthrough in the early 1970s as a founding member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and as a drummer/leader whose recordings (such as Spectrum) and powerful, complex style of play exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion-Billy Cobham has remained a tireless musical explorer. In 2014, Cobham will release a live CD recording from last years' celebrated Spectrum 40 tours, which dazzled audiences around the world in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Spectrum CD, the defining album of the jazz-fusion genre.

An Evening with Stanley Sagov & The Remembering The Future Jazz Band, with Special Guest jazz/rock guitarist Larry Coryell will be presented at THE REGATTABAR at the Charles Hotel (1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA - 617-395-7757) on Saturday, September 6th at 7:30 pm. Stanley Sagov is a dazzling jazz pianist and composer who is skilled on a number of musical instruments. Sagov also commands a full time career as a medical doctor, amazing his colleagues in both music and in medicine with his ability to lead such an intense dual life both as a physician and as a musician. Sagov's Band is thrilled to be re-joined for another evening at the RegattaBar with one of the pioneers of jazz-rock - perhaps the pioneer in the ears of some - Special Guest Larry Coryell. Coryell deserves a special place in the history books. He brought what amounted to a nearly alien sensibility to jazz electric guitar playing in the 1960s, a hard-edged, cutting tone, phrasing and note-bending that owed as much to blues, rock and even country as it did to earlier, smoother bop influences. Other members of the band are Wanetta Jackson on vocals, Robert Douglas Gay on alto sax, Bob Gullotti on drums, and John Lockwood on bass. There is a $30 cover.


TORONTO: THE ANDREW CRAIG QUARTET AT THE JAZZ BISTRO

Craig has long searched for the nexus point between jazz, blues, R & B, funk, Gospel and music of the African continent. His latest songs come closest to reaching that nexus point, and he is excited to debut them in public for the first time. Craig is thrilled to be supported by a world-class trio of musicians: Paa Joe - guitar, Rich Brown - bass and Altaf Vellani - drums and percussion. Andrew Craig creates and performs original music, directs orchestras and musical productions, produces albums, radio, and television, and composes for theatre. He's worked with artists such as Molly Johnson, Wynton Marsalis, Measha Bruggergosman and Kellylee Evans, opened for Bobby McFerrin, directed tributes to Oscar Peterson and Quincy Jones, and performed twice for Nelson Mandela.

Born into a musical family, Kristian started studying piano at 7 and was writing classically by 8. Early exposure to Oscar Peterson and Django Reinhardt caused him to fall deeply in love with jazz, a style of music that has shaped his life. Since then, he has explored and performed swing, French jazz manouche, contemporary jazz, and classical music. The result is a highly personal sound blending the harmony of French impressionists Ravel and Debussy with the passion of jazz manouche; all placed within the sophistication of modern jazz. He is currently studying piano at the University of Toronto with scholarship. There is no cover.

It is also the vibrant force of their explosive live show, which is frequently known to burst into crowd-wide Carnival-style drumming and singing. Nation Beat's audacious energy seamlessly bridges folkloric Brazilian maracatu with classic NOLA roots music attracting an ever-growing legion of fans from across a wide demographic.
