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.

Four-time JUNO Award winner, two-time Grammy nominee, and Officer of the Order of Canada, soprano saxophonist/ flautist Jane Bunnett is known for her creative integrity, improvisational daring and courageous artistry. Her exploration of Afro-Cuban melodies expresses the universality of music and her ability to embrace and showcase the rhythms and culture of Cuba has been groundbreaking. Havana native Hilario Duran is well known as one of the great Cuban pianists. In the 1980s he joined Arturo Sandoval's band as composer, arranger, producer and pianist; it was a collaboration that saw him often sharing stages with musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie and Michel Legrand. Duran toured throughout Latin American and Europe with his own group, Perspectiva, for several years, a period during which he also played piano on Jane Bunnett's Juno Award-winning spirits of Havana recording. Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1921, NEA Jazz Master Candido Camero first began making music as a young child, beating rhythms on empty condensed milk cans in place of bongos. He worked for six years with the CMQ Radio Orchestra and at the famed Cabaret Tropicana. He came to the United States in 1946 with the dance team Carmen and Rolando, and very soon after was playing with Billy Taylor. There is a $20-$25 cover.

Havana native Hilario Duran is well known as one of the great Cuban pianists. In the 1980s he joined Arturo Sandoval's band as composer, arranger, producer and pianist; it was a collaboration that saw him often sharing stages with musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie and Michel Legrand. Duran toured throughout Latin American and Europe with his own group, Perspectiva, for several years, a period during which he also played piano on Jane Bunnett's Juno Award-winning spirits of Havana recording. Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1921, NEA Jazz Master Candido Camero first began making music as a young child, beating rhythms on empty condensed milk cans in place of bongos. He worked for six years with the CMQ Radio Orchestra and at the famed Cabaret Tropicana. He came to the United States in 1946 with the dance team Carmen and Rolando, and very soon after was playing with Billy Taylor. There is a $20-$25 cover.

Four-time JUNO Award winner, two-time Grammy nominee, and Officer of the Order of Canada, soprano saxophonist/ flautist Jane Bunnett is known for her creative integrity, improvisational daring and courageous artistry. Her exploration of Afro-Cuban melodies expresses the universality of music and her ability to embrace and showcase the rhythms and culture of Cuba has been groundbreaking. Havana native Hilario Duran is well known as one of the great Cuban pianists. In the 1980s he joined Arturo Sandoval's band as composer, arranger, producer and pianist; it was a collaboration that saw him often sharing stages with musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie and Michel Legrand. Duran toured throughout Latin American and Europe with his own group, Perspectiva, for several years, a period during which he also played piano on Jane Bunnett's Juno Award-winning spirits of Havana recording. Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1921, NEA Jazz Master Candido Camero first began making music as a young child, beating rhythms on empty condensed milk cans in place of bongos. He worked for six years with the CMQ Radio Orchestra and at the famed Cabaret Tropicana. He came to the United States in 1946 with the dance team Carmen and Rolando, and very soon after was playing with Billy Taylor. There is a $20-$25 cover.

NYC: MATTHEW SHIPP TRIO: TRIBUTE TO DUKE ELLINGTON

The Matthew Shipp Trio will pay tribute to Duke Ellington at DIZZY'S CLUB AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER (33 West 60th Street, NYC - 212-258-9595) on Monday, November 3rd with shows at 7:30 & 9:30 pm. Fascinating things happen when you combine Duke Ellington's compositions with Matthew Shipp's approach to the piano trio. While Shipp and his trio show great knowledge of Ellington's work, they are not afraid to change its original intent to fit their own; in an approach atypical to an Ellington tribute, reverence is not demonstrated though purism or overt tradition. Shipp's expansive adaptations–dense, emotional, and full of quotes and allusions–successfully walk the fine line of rewarding those familiar with Ellington's music, while in no way requiring familiarity to appreciate the thought-provoking journeys they create. Much like Ellington, Shipp draws from the world of classical music, leaning towards a modern dissonance that ranges from playful to aggressive. In both cases, the ensuing moments of clarity and familiarity are all the more cathartic thanks to this contrast. Michael Bisio's almost-telepathic ability to both follow and propel Shipp's challenging improvisations speaks to their extensive joint experience. There is a $25 cover.
