Concert at Joe’s Pub
I was very happy indeed to be invited to give a concert at Joe’s Pub, an amazing venue in New York City where so many of my musical heroes have performed, from Eartha Kitt to Youssou N’Dour and more recently celebrated artists such as Norah Jones and Nellie McKay. This concert was the first step I took in developing my new musical project named, for the time being, “a musical tableau of Paris in the 1940s”. It combines American swing and French jazz with a slight Eastern European influence in the arrangements. I am very lucky to have assembled such a great cast of musicians for this show, with Adrien Chevalier (violin), Vinny Raniolo (guitar), Adrian Cunningham (clarinet, saxophone & flute), Brandi Disterheft (bass) and Kevin Congleton (drums). I was also very pleasantly surprised that we sold out our show and had such a lovely audience there to support us and enjoy our music.
