Smalls, Barbara Rosene, Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Wonderful Barbara Rosene transformed us back to the golden age of jazz in an intimate setting of Smalls. It seemed we were in someones living room or on a porch and Rosene was singing just for us.

Zinc Bar, Lara Bello, Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Even if the weather is cold and wet, Jazz Nights are always fun and full of surprises. Yesterday I wondered into a Zinc Bar, which wasn’t too crowded and I was lucky to hear the wonderful Lara Bello.  She was dancing and singing and her voice and music were magical. Lara Bello writes her own lyrics and maybe I will be able to use them here. Keep checking for updates!

Smalls, Monday, December 6, Freddie Bryant, The Ari Hoenig Group

Smalls is a great jazz club hidden underground in Greenwich Village. It is a small place that even on Monday night is full of jazz aficionados. Freddie Bryant and The Ari Hoenig Group were playing last night and both were fantastic.
