NYC: DIZZY GILLESPIE ALL-STARS - FALL SUNDAY BRUNCH RESIDENCY

THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) presents the Dizzy Gillespie All Stars for a special Fall Sunday Brunch Residency. The band will perform brunch shows every Sunday with performances at 11:30 am & 1:30 pm, through December 28th. History has produced its share of great artists and great people - legendary jazz trumpeter 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. Officially authorized by Lorraine Gillespie, and under the leadership of Dizzy's long-time bassist John Lee, a selection of ensembles of varying sizes were formed, featuring many of the wide variety of musicians who worked with Dizzy plus some newer talents from the jazz scene. Together they are working to continue the legacy of both the music and the personality of this great jazz master who had such a profound impact on twentieth century music. There is a $35 cover. **Price includes brunch, music and a drink.**

The Nova Scotia-born musician has released five celebrated albums and is currently preparing his new recording, this time delving into timeless songs from the American popular songbook. His world-class piano playing, combined with his rich, soulful baritone voice, make Steve Amirault a performer not to be missed. A celebrated artist, Amirault has won the Montreal International Jazz Festival Competition, the Prix Opus (Album of the Year for his recording, "Breath"), and two Juno Awards (for collaborations with Fran•ois Carrier and Christine Jensen.) This dynamic performer has shared the stage with many great artists such as Joe Lovano and Dave Liebman and has recorded with Sheila Jordan and Eddie Gomez.

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.

His father, a jazz band instructor, played with James Brown and Al Green. His mother, an educator who also served as principal at Newark's Arts High School (alma mater to jazz greats Sarah Vaughan and Wayne Shorter), was also a choir director and classically trained pianist. One could surmise that Brown had no choice in the matter when it came to his profession, yet he felt no pressure by his musically-immersed childhood. After playing saxophone and drums in school and church, and attending Delaware State University as music major, Brown crossed paths with jazz icon Donald Byrd and his course was dramatically altered. Byrd, who was Artist in Residence at DSU, convinced Brown to think beyond a career in music education and go to New York City to be in the thick of things. After studying at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and the Thelonious Monk Institute, Otis caught the attention of Joe Lovano. Brown became a founding member of Lovano's Us Five quintet, recording three albums, including the GRAMMY-nominated Bird Songs. There is a $25 cover.

WASHINGTON, DC: OTIS BROWN III AT BOHEMIAN CAVERNS

Otis Brown III will perform at BOHEMIAN CAVERNS (2001 Eleventh Street N.W., Washington, DC - 202-299-0800) on Friday & Saturday, October 10th & 11th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. The son of musicians and music educators, New Jersey native Otis Brown grew up to the sounds of jazz, gospel, funk and rhythm and blues. His father, a jazz band instructor, played with James Brown and Al Green. His mother, an educator who also served as principal at Newark's Arts High School (alma mater to jazz greats Sarah Vaughan and Wayne Shorter), was also a choir director and classically trained pianist. One could surmise that Brown had no choice in the matter when it came to his profession, yet he felt no pressure by his musically-immersed childhood. After playing saxophone and drums in school and church, and attending Delaware State University as music major, Brown crossed paths with jazz icon Donald Byrd and his course was dramatically altered. Byrd, who was Artist in Residence at DSU, convinced Brown to think beyond a career in music education and go to New York City to be in the thick of things. After studying at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and the Thelonious Monk Institute, Otis caught the attention of Joe Lovano. Brown became a founding member of Lovano's Us Five quintet, recording three albums, including the GRAMMY-nominated Bird Songs. There is a $25 cover.

SAN FRANCISCO: CLAUDIA VILLELA AT YOSHI'S

Jazz vocalist Claudia Villela will perform at YOSHI'S (1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-655-5600) on Wednesday, October 8th at 8:00 pm. Villela's voice gets all the attention, and it's easy to understand why. Her glorious five-octave instrument is one of the wonders of jazz, lithe and startlingly beautiful in every register. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, she sings mostly in Portuguese, interpreting lyrics with keen emotional insight and supple rhythmic command. A supremely inventive scat singer, she has honed a vivid vocabulary of sounds that can evoke the hollow thump of a tabla drum, the muted trumpet of Miles Davis, the insistent twang of a berimbau, the ethereal call of a flute, or the distortion-laden Stratocaster licks of Jimi Hendrix. There is a $25 cover.

Carly Ozard brings her show 'Divine Miss M' to STAGE 72 (158 West 72nd Street, NYC - 212-362-2590) on Tuesday, October 7th at 7:00 pm. Since moving to New York City two years ago, Carly Ozard has headlined distinguished cabaret venues including the Laurie Beechman Theatre, the Duplex, and the Iridium. Carly is raising the stakes even further with her personal and powerful new show 'Midler on the Roof' - which she describes as "a musical journey of Divine intervention." Midler on the Roof is directed by Kristine Zbornik, a noted cabaret and Broadway performer and teacher, who has added extra zing to Carly's characteristically candid humor. Growing up in a small Northern California town that offered few artistic opportunities, Carly was severely bullied because of her flair for theater, singing, and sequins. Her mother introduced her to the Divine Miss M at age 6, and Bette Midler's music soon became the soundtrack of Carly's adolescence-a source of comfort and "musical therapy." In 'Midler on the Roof', Carly portrays her younger self from elementary through high school as she faces her fears, finds her voice, and gradually learns to embrace her unique identity as a budding performer. There is a $25 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

Her writing is remarkable for its creativity, stylistic range, emotional depth, and whimsical spirit. Her storied career does indeed invite parallels to Picasso; like the great visual artist, she has consistently defied convention, remaking herself and her art many times over.

Few musicians share the ability of saxophonist/composer Rudresh Mahanthappa to embody the expansive possibilities of his music with his culture. What has materialized is a sound that hybridizes progressive jazz and South Indian classical music in a fluid and forward-looking form that reflects Mahanthappa's own experience growing up a second-generation Indian-American.
