PALM SPRINGS, CA: JULIE ESPOSITIO COMES TO PALM DESERT

Julie Esposito will perform her new cabaret show entitled "Open Your Window" at THE ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATRE at the JOSLYN CENTER (73-750 Catalina Way, Palm Desert, CA - TKTS: 760-325-2731) on Sunday, October 19th at 2:00 pm. Critics have called Ms. Esposito an eclectic singer based on her use of a wide range of both musical styles and composers in her previous shows, and this new latest one is no exception. Joining Julie will be musical director and pianist Andy Howe. The show is part of Less Michael's Sundays in the Summer series. Julie Esposito began singing professionally at the age of 16 back in her hometown of Chicago where she acquired the music bug from her father, the late jazz pianist and musical director, Gene Esposito who worked with many of the big names in music. For "Open Your Window", Julie took a cue from her own life, choosing songs that reminded her of her childhood growing up in the 1960's up through today, a happily married attorney by day - cabaret singer by night. She's appeared at major clubs around Los Angeles and New York and is known for her pure, warm tone and artful phrasing with a unique style characterized by a mixture of jazz, popular, Broadway and The Great American Songbook. This show is also the title of her latest CD, which has earned much praise from reviewers and critics, as did her previous CD, "Unsung Hollywood", which features lessor known gems from the silver screen. Both CD's are available on line at Amazon, CD Baby and of course after her show. There is an $11 cash cover.

PALM SPRINGS, CA: JULIE ESPOSITIO COMES TO PALM DESERT

Julie Esposito will perform her new cabaret show entitled "Open Your Window" at THE ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATRE at the JOSLYN CENTER (73-750 Catalina Way, Palm Desert, CA - TKTS: 760-325-2731) on Sunday, October 19th at 2:00 pm. Critics have called Ms. Esposito an eclectic singer based on her use of a wide range of both musical styles and composers in her previous shows, and this new latest one is no exception. Joining Julie will be musical director and pianist Andy Howe. The show is part of Less Michael's Sundays in the Summer series. Julie Esposito began singing professionally at the age of 16 back in her hometown of Chicago where she acquired the music bug from her father, the late jazz pianist and musical director, Gene Esposito who worked with many of the big names in music. For "Open Your Window", Julie took a cue from her own life, choosing songs that reminded her of her childhood growing up in the 1960's up through today, a happily married attorney by day - cabaret singer by night. She's appeared at major clubs around Los Angeles and New York and is known for her pure, warm tone and artful phrasing with a unique style characterized by a mixture of jazz, popular, Broadway and The Great American Songbook. This show is also the title of her latest CD, which has earned much praise from reviewers and critics, as did her previous CD, "Unsung Hollywood", which features lessor known gems from the silver screen. Both CD's are available on line at Amazon, CD Baby and of course after her show. There is an $11 cash cover.

NYC Cabaret/Jazz icon Barbara Carroll performs at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Saturdays in October 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.

McBride's large sound and expertise, both with plucked and bowed solos, recall Ray Brown and particularly Paul Chambers. He actually started on electric bass when he was eight and took R&B gigs in high school, but by then he was getting more interested in jazz and playing the acoustic bass. McBride studied at Juilliard (starting in 1989) and then played briefly in the bands of Bobby Watson, Benny Golson, Roy Hargrove, and Freddie Hubbard. He toured with the Benny Green Trio, played duets with Ray Brown at the 1994 Monterey Jazz Festival, and recorded his debut as a leader for Verve before touring with his own group in 1995. Beginning with Family Affair in 1998, McBride opened up his sound and incorporated more of the pop, funk, and fusion styles he grew up with. This approach continued through such albums as Sci-Fi and Vertical Vision. Having jumped labels from Verve to Warner in the early 2000s, McBride made yet another label change, releasing the more straight-ahead New York Time on Chesky in 2006. In 2009, McBride returned with an equally straight-ahead set of mostly original tunes, Kind of Brown. Two years later, he offered The Good Feeling, his first turn as leader of a big band. The duets album Conversations with Christian followed in 2011. In 2013, McBride returned to working with his Inside Straight quintet for the album People Music. Also in 2013, McBride released the trio album Out Here. There is a $20 cover.

Famed Guitarists Bucky Pizzarelli, Howard Alden and Vocalist Jeanne Gies will perform at THE CABARET AT THE SQUARE (525 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, VA - 540-373-9601) on Saturday, October 18th at 9:00 pm. Bucky Pizzarelli is a legend on the seven-string jazz guitar. Having played with the Vaughn Monroe Orchestra, the Benny Goodman Orchestra, The Tonight Show Band, and•for Frank Sinatra, most recently he recorded with former Beatle Paul McCartney on his new Grammy Award winning album, "Kisses on the Bottom". At the age of 88, he still tours and performs all over the world. The critics all agree about Howard Alden, jazz guitarist, proclaiming one of the best of this generation. Jeanne Gies made her vocal debut in 2011 with George Wein's Newport All-Stars on the Jazz Cruise. Jeanne's spring tour of England, Scotland, and Germany led to a 2012 nomination for the Scottish jazz awards. In between tours, Jeanne performs weekly at Joe G's Restaurant, an intimate local treasure with exquisite Sicilian cuisine located in the heart of Manhattan.

If one were attempting to design a prototype for the quintessential contemporary musician, trumpeter/ fluegelhornist/ composer Russell Gunn is the model. A certified member of the hip-hop generation, Russell's early aspirations in the world of rap music took precedence over the trumpet that he began playing in fourth grade. When he reached sixteen, his dedication to the art of jazz took shape Rather than abandoning the music he loved, he simply applied its energy, spirit and fiercely proud intellectual rage to the jazz idiom, creating a synthesis that is truly contemporary and singular. Gunn has developed his music from a wide variety of musical influences. In his case, Gunn weaves together elements of Cuban, Brazilian, African,"Go Go" music, and Hip-Hop into an adventurously progressive jazz style that pays tribute to its tradition while also extending the form. As a recording artist James can be heard on such labels as Atlantic, Impulse, Motown, High Note, Fresh Sounds, Innerscope, Reservoir, Enja (Germany), Polygram Polydor (France), Red Records (Italy), Pi Records, Sony Music (South Africa), Small Records (NYC), DreamWorks Records and Adam Rudolph's Meta Records. In 1995 Bruce Lundvall signed the Sherman Irby Quartet after hearing at their Smalls Jazz Club late night residency. Afterwards James recorded and released Dark Grooves Mystical Rhythms on the Blue Note Records label in 1999. James recorded on Grammy nominated albums for Antonio Hart (Here I Stand), Abbey Lincoln (Wholly Earth), and Russell Gunn (Ethnomusicology Vol. I). There is a $10-$20 cover.
