NYC: BARBARA CARROLL SATURDAYS AT BIRDLAND

NYC Cabaret/Jazz icon Barbara Carroll performs at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Saturdays 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. There is a $30 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

NYC: DENA DEROSE TRIO WITH SPECIAL GUEST JEREMY PELT

The Dena DeRose Trio with Dena Derose (piano/vocals), Martin Wind (bass), and Matt Wilson (drums) along with Jeremy Pelt (trumpet) will perform at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Thursday through Saturday, January 22nd through 24th with shows at 8:30 & 11:00 pm. It's no small thing to be called "The most creative and compelling singer-pianist since Shirley Horn," but that's how Joel Siegel, Washington City Paper, described Dena DeRose. It is with great pleasure that HighNote Records welcomes Dena to their roster with her label debut recording "We Won't Forget You... An Homage To Shirley Horn" which features the understated, swinging side of the late, great Horn. As this year would have been Ms. Horn's 80th birthday, it seems only appropriate for DeRose, also a triple threat vocalist, pianist, and arranger, to pay tribute to one of her major idols. Boasting an imaginative set list of some lesser recorded gems and varied use of the instrumental colors available, Dena DeRose's first release on HighNote is jazz singing and playing of the highest order. There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

NYC: BLUE NOTE DOUBLE FEATURE: PAT MARTINO ORGAN TRIO & LARRY CORYELL / VIC JURIS DUO

One of the greatest guitarists in jazz, Martino got his start on the "chitlin' circuit" in the 1960s with organ groups led by Richard "Groove" Holmes, Jack McDuff, Don Patterson, Trudy Pitts and Charles Earland. Having made a full and remarkable recovery from a life-threatening illness in the 1980's that caused him to forget how to play the guitar, Martino relearned by listening to his own early recordings and has re-emerged as a veteran presence on the jazz scene. Today Martino lives in his native Philadelphia and his playing is as fiery and technically brilliant as ever. One of the world's acknowledged guitar masters, Larry Coryell is among the most prominent pioneers of jazz-rock fusion. A true musical polyglot, he's equally capable of shredding screeching rock licks and delivering delicate acoustic gems. He has toured or recorded with virtually every major figure in the jazz world, including Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Chick Corea, Sonny Rollins, Pat Metheny, Gary Burton, and Charles Mingus. Coryell made his debut as a leader in the mid-'60s, blending elements of rock, jazz, and Eastern music with his band The Eleventh House. He unplugged in the mid-'70s and produced a large volume of acoustic music, much of it in duo and trio settings with artists like Emily Remler, John Scofield, Joe Beck, Steve Khan, and John McLaughlin. He returned to the electric sound in the mid-'80s with a guitar power trio featuring McLaughlin and Paco de Lucea. Forever an innovator, he continues to cross boundaries of style and genre with his music. There is a $20-$35 cover. 

NYC: CARLOS HENRIQUEZ AT DIZZY'S

Since performing in the first Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Festival and Competition, Henriquez has taken over the bass chair in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, become a regular member of the Wynton Marsalis Quintet, as well as a celebrated arranger, educator, music director, and entertaining concert host. These sets feature rising star trumpeter Sean Jones, saxophonist Felipe Lamoglia, pianist Robert Rodriguez (of the Rodriguez Brothers), JLCO drummer Ali Jackson, and percussionist Bobby Allende. Henriquez is a gifted performer and composer of both jazz and Latin music, so expect a swinging blend of the two on this celebratory occasion. There is a $35-$40 cover.

An Homage To Shirley Horn" which features the understated, swinging side of the late, great Horn.

One of the world's acknowledged guitar masters, Larry Coryell is among the most prominent pioneers of jazz-rock fusion.

The show will be a night of all-original music written by the artist, with guest stars from stage, screen, and Washington Square Park. Don't expect to hear the story of his life, or a teary wander down ex-girlfriend lane - just an evening of music and merriment. Be there or be "Peter Pan Live" on NBC! (Believe it or not, Haynie's credits include Holler If Ya Hear Me, Wicked, Dogfight, Carrie, and "Peter Pan LIVE!" on NBC.) Haynie will be joined on stage by Andy Mientus (Les Miserables, "Smash"), Taylor Louderman (Bring It On, "Peter Pan LIVE!"), Ben Fankhauser (Newsies), Jason Gotay (Bring It On, "Peter Pan LIVE!"), Alex Brightman (Matilda, Big Fish), Andrew Kober (Les Miserables, Hair), Drew Gasparini (Crazy, Just Like Me), Jeremy Morse (Bloodsong of Love), Julia Mattison (Godspell), Janet Krupin (If/Then, Bring It On), Emily Rogers (Sweeney Todd), Ephie Aardema (Bridges of Madison County), and Charlie Franklin (The Book of Mormon). The evening will feature music direction by Justin Goldner and is produced by Erica Rotstein. There is a $20-$40 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.
