NYC: BLUE NOTE JAZZ BRUNCH: JON HENDRICKS WITH THE DIZZY GILLESPIE ALL STARS

Jon Hendricks will celebrate his 93rd Birthday, singing with The Dizzy Gillespie All Stars at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Sunday, September 14th with performances at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm. Jon Hendricks is not only one of the world's favorite jazz vocalists, but is widely considered to be the "Father of Vocalese", the greatest innovator of the art form. Vocalese is the art of setting lyrics to recorded jazz instrumental standards (such as the big band arrangements of Duke Ellington and Count Basie), then arranging voices to sing the parts of the instruments. Thus is created an entirely new form of the work, one that tells a lyrically interesting story while retaining the integrity of the music. Hendricks is the only person many jazz greats have allowed to lyricize their music, for no one writes hipper, wittier, or more touching words, while extracting from a tune the emotions intended by the composer, more sympathetically than Hendricks. Hendricks recorded several critically-acclaimed albums on his own, some with his wife Judith and daughters Michele and Aria contributing. He collaborated with old friends The Manhattan Transfer for their seminal 1985 album, Vocalese, which won seven Grammy Awards. He's served on the Kennedy Center Honors committee under Presidents Carter, Reagan, and Clinton. In 2000, Hendricks returned to his hometown to teach at the University of Toledo, where he was appointed Distinguished Professor of Jazz Studies and received an honorary Doctorate of the Performing Arts. There is a $15-$25 cover **Price is for Entry to Show Only, Does Not Include Food or Drink - Brunch will be served a la carte**

When she isn't singing a show tune, odds are she is either out running an inappropriate amount of miles in prep for her next marathon (she's run 13 of them) or leading one of her several weekly Weight Watchers groups in Manhattan.

In 1977, Robben Ford assembled a group of veteran session musicians to record his album The Inside Story. The trio of musicians, which included keyboardist Russell Ferrante, bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Ricky Lawson, soon discovered a certain "chemistry" and musical affinity that led to their formation of Yellowjackets.

Songs include Mad About The Boy, Never Again, I Believe, We Were Dancing and Alice Is At It Again. Poems include the touching Honeymoon 1905; the terrible sadness of Reunion in which a husband and wife realise the damage that war has done to their relationship; Social Grace, in which Coward encounters an hilariously over-enthusiastic fan and the epic 'Not yet The Dodo,' in which two upper-middle-class parents are forced to come to terms with their son's homosexuality. Alistair McGowan is probably best known for his BAFTA-winning show The Big Impression, but he has also acted with The Royal Shakespeare Company and taken lead roles in West End Musicals Cabaret and Little Shop of Horrors and in West End plays Art and Pygmalion. He was part of the BBC's hugely successful Bleak House and is also familiar to younger audiences from CBBC's drama Leonardo. Call for cover/minimum information.


LONDON: LATE NIGHT JAZZ: BEN COX AND JAMIE SAFIRUDDIN

THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888) presents Rhymes & Reasons, on Saturday, September 13th at 10:30 pm. The show is an evening of cherry picked songs from great songwriters throughout history, from Gershwin to Carole King, Cole Porter to Paul Simon and Jerome Kern to Joni Mitchell performed by two young up and coming songwriters: Ben Cox And Jamie Safiruddin. Ben Cox is an outstanding Jazz singer. He initially studied classical piano and trumpet but his love of jazz singing led him to London and his studies at Guildhall. Since moving to London he has taken his opportunities to perform with internationally acclaimed jazz musicians and is a member of the A Cappella group 'Vive', who recently performed to great acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe. Jamie Safiruddin started playing the piano at the age of 8 on a baby grand that had been a family heirloom since the start of the century. As a student he discovered the exciting electric funk and fusion of Herbie Hancock, The Yellowjackets, The Meters, Weather Report, Chick Corea and Tower of Power. From there, it was a logical step backwards to find the origins of the music in 50s and 60s American Jazz. Jamie's professional work as arranger has recently begun to develop, including several arrangements featuring on the forthcoming Cherry Ghost album. He has also toured with the legendary Paul Heaton with 'The 8th'. Call for cover/minimum information.

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.

Coco Montoya performs at THE REGATTABAR at the Charles Hotel (1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA - 617-395-7757) on Wednesday, September 10th at 7:30 pm. From his early days as a drummer to his current status as one of the top-drawing guitarists and vocalists on the blues-rock scene, Montoya earned his status through years of hard work and constant touring.

Albert took an immediate liking to Montoya, becoming his mentor and teaching his new protege the secrets of Collins' "icy hot" style of blues guitar. Five years later, British blues icon John Mayall happened to catch Montoya at a jam session and was blown away.

Maya Beiser: Uncovered is a collection of startling classic rock tunes, re-imagined and re-contextualized, in stunning performances by Maya Beiser. Her concert at Yoshi's, with bassist Gyan Riley and drummer Matt Kilmer, follows shortly after the August 26, 2014 release of Uncovered, the album. A "cover tune" can be an homage to the original, but these "uncovers," in new arrangements by Evan Ziporyn, attempt to do more - to evoke the unprecedented power of the music of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Janis Joplin, Howlin' Wolf, and AC/DC. Maya juxtaposes these handpicked rock classics with composer and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche's Three Parts Wisdom and David T. Little's Hellhound, both written for Maya, and David Lang's take on Lou Reed's Heroin. Maya's performance explores the juncture where the spiritual, traditional, contemporary, urban, and popular culture meet. There is a $35 cover.

The story of Lauren: eight years ago this bright-eyed, Tennessee girl arrived in New York City ready to take on a big adventure. She made her Broadway debut at 18, originating the role of the forlorn and wandering "Ilse" in the 8-time Tony Award-winning musical Spring Awakening. The show offered her first introduction to the intricacies of developing a new musical, and she fell in love with the creative process. After Spring Awakening Lauren moved to England, signed a record deal with Universal/Island Records, and spent 5 years being LOLO-performing rock 'n roll and bringing the house down on stages all over the world. She co-wrote and performed on the top 10 Billboard hit "Miss Jackson" with Panic! At The Disco, she has written and recorded an album (to be released soon), and she can currently be seen on the MONUMENTOUR sharing the stage with Fall Out Boy and New Politics. But since age 14, in her spare time, Lauren has also been quietly dreaming up stories. Then last summer she had the fortune to meet the very clever Michael Kimmel, and thus began her first formal collaboration for the theatre: a new play with music titled Songbird, which was presented to a sold-out audience at Joe's Pub in July. There is a $30-$40 cover plus a $25 food/drink minimum.

LONDON: ALISTAIR MCGOWAN AND CHARLOTTE PAGE AT THE CRAZY COQS

Alistair McGowan is joined by his wife, actress Charlotte Page, to perform Sincerely Noel, a personally selected medley of songs and poems by Noel Coward in their debut at THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888), Tuesday through Saturday, September 9th through 13th at 8:00 pm. Under the crisp direction of Brendan O'Hea and with the skilled Musical Arrangements of Warren Wills, they breathe new life into some classic Coward songs and showcase some of his more obscure work. Songs include Mad About The Boy, Never Again, I Believe, We Were Dancing and Alice Is At It Again. Poems include the touching Honeymoon 1905; the terrible sadness of Reunion in which a husband and wife realise the damage that war has done to their relationship; Social Grace, in which Coward encounters an hilariously over-enthusiastic fan and the epic 'Not yet The Dodo,' in which two upper-middle-class parents are forced to come to terms with their son's homosexuality. Alistair McGowan is probably best known for his BAFTA-winning show The Big Impression, but he has also acted with The Royal Shakespeare Company and taken lead roles in West End Musicals Cabaret and Little Shop of Horrors and in West End plays Art and Pygmalion. He was part of the BBC's hugely successful Bleak House and is also familiar to younger audiences from CBBC's drama Leonardo. Call for cover/minimum information.

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. There is a $35-$45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

Salif Keita gave up a lot to pursue his dreams of a career in music. Born albinos, he was cast out by his family and ostracized by the community. In Mandinka culture albinism is seen as a sign of bad luck and there are beliefs that it's a mark of the devil. From a royal lineage, with ancestral roots going back to Soundjata Keita, the founder of the Malian Empire in 1240, Keita was disowned by his father after announcing his plans to play music. 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. He has received musical as well as political and humanitarian acknowledgements, and, throughout his life, has tried to transmit a message of peace through his stunning music which has dictated the standards of contemporary mandingo creation. There is a $29-$35 cover.

He has created several crowd-pulling, audience-pleasing concert themes which have won five star reviews and, along the way, many respected songwriters have praised Gordon's interpretations of their songs, including Gilbert O'Sullivan and Stephen Sondheim.

From that moment, he collected almost every record by Ol' Blue Eyes and, from there, his interest expanded to jazz and swing, encompassing numerous other renowned singers and instrumentalists. Further inspiration came in 1975, when he met Ella Fitzgerald, and he has been fortunate to work with some of the very best British muscians and performed with top US players.
