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, February 8th, 15th & 22nd 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.

Miles Davis' career as a trumpeter, composer and bandleader is synonymous with the stylistic evolution of jazz. His ensembles and recordings are the benchmarks for cool, post-bop and fusion as evidenced by these four-generations of artists who first gained recognition under Davis' leadership. Drummer Jimmy Cobb appeared on one of the most popular and influential recordings in history, "Kind of Blue" (1959) while guitarist Mike Stern ("We Want Miles," 1981), bassist Buster Williams ("Directions," 1960s) and alto saxophonist Sonny Fortune ("Big Fun," 1974) have the post-bop and fusion bases well covered.

King, the Kronos Quartet, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, and Bobby Timmons.

Seraphine is a founding member of Chicago. Worldwide the iconic group has sold over 122 million albums, and, just domestically, earned 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. In 1990, after 23 years in the group, Seraphine and Chicago had a jarring parting of ways, and he left music behind for 15 years. But a call to play a benefit show for a fellow drummer pulled him out of seclusion and sparked a creative rebirth. Today, Seraphine looks forward with Sacred Ground (Street Sense), the sophomore record from his jazz-rock powerhouse group CTA - often described as "Chicago on steroids" - and he makes peace with his past with the refreshingly candid memoir Street Player: My Chicago Story (Wiley). There is a $40-$70 cover plus a $15 food/drink minimum.

Terry Gibbs' career included tours and performances with leaders like Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Max Roach, Dizzy Gillespie, and Tito Puente, to name a select few. In addition to his prestige as one of the greatest vibraphonists of all time, Terry Gibbs was especially recognized as a bandleader, winning Best Quartet, Best Big Band, Best Band Leader, and of course, "Best Band in the World" in major polls. Gibbs' compositions have been recorded by icons including Cannonball Adderley and Count Basie, and the top-shelf musicians featured in this tribute will maintain this ongoing legacy. Featuring modern giants, including Tom Harrell, Nicholas Payton, Paquito D'Rivera, and many more, we can't think of a better way to honor this quintessential member of jazz history. There is a $30-$45 cover.

In the heyday of Tin Pan Alley songwriting and Broadway musicals, working songwriters would toss their unused songs into a trunk. They would pull one of these songs out when a musical was in need of one more number, changing it as needed for the new use. Milano will perform the original versions of many familiar songs. Few people know that Judy Garland's famous torch song "The Man That Got Away" was originally written as an upbeat love song 12 years before she sang it in "A Star Is Born," or that "Tomorrow" was actually used, with different lyrics, in a shirt commercial years before it was heard on Broadway in "Annie." And who knew that a straight-laced composer wrote X-rated lyrics to "You're The Top" that topped any double entendres Cole Porter ever wrote? Mark Milano has tracked down the original arrangements and lyrics of many familiar songs, offering a truly unique cabaret offering. Tickets benefit HealthGAP, an organization working to widen access to HIV/AIDS treatment. Call for cover/minimum information.

Originally a piano singalong night at The Pink Pony Cafe on Ludlow Street in lower Manhattan, The Loser's debuted at The Fez Nightclub with A Tribute To Burt Bacharach. House band The Kustard Kings joined the show in june 1994 for The Mancini Tribute and have been the backup band ever since.

Sometimes famous people stop by to sing (Nellie Mckay, the late Joey Ramone, Andy Richter, Parker Posey, Debby Harry, Fred Armisen, J Mascis and They Might Be Giants) but it's the talented group of regulars that consistently bring the house down. After 10 years of sold out shows at Fez, Losers Lounge now packs 'em in regularly at JOE'S PUB. There is a $25 cover.
