LONDON: JUDY CARMICHAEL AT THE CRAZY COQS
Grammy nominated American pianist, vocalist, songwriter, Judy Carmichael, will debut some of her new compositions, along with gems from the American Songbook, in an evening of swinging piano, sultry vocals and sassy humour at THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL(20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888) on Tuesday throughSaturday, May 10th through 14th, at 8:00 pm. Count Basie nicknamed Judy "Stride" in reference to her mastery of that early piano style popularized by Thomas "Fats" Waller and James P. Johnson. A favourite at Crazy Coqs, Judy Carmichael plays to sell-out crowds every visit. Her concerts in June 2015 at the City of London Festival and Ronnie Scott's were sold out weeks before the events. Judy's frequent musical partner, guitarist Colin Oxley, will join her, as well as some surprise guests. Judy Carmichael appears frequently on radio and TV throughout the world and maintains a busy international touring schedule. She is popular with both jazz and cabaret audiences with her soulful, swinging interpretations of the Great American Songbook, and equally impressive hilarious, improvisational anecdotes. Her wit and musical knowledge come together on her weekly radio broadcast Judy Carmichael's Jazz Inspired, now in its 17th year, where she talks with celebrated creative people about their love for jazz and how it inspires them, everyone from Seth MacFarlane and Chevy Chase to Robert Redford and Billy Joel. Call for reservations and cover/minimum information.
LONDON: SWING NIGHT WITH THE SILVER GHOSTS
The Silver Ghosts, a London based seven piece swing ensemble (trumpet, trombone, clarinet, banjo, double bass, drums, vocals) will appear at THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888)Friday, May 13th, at 10:30 pm performing numbers that evoke the hot, breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s, 30s and 40s as part of the club's Swing Night Series. Remaining faithful to the smart sartorial spirit of the period of the music, their look is considered an important part of the ensemble's performance. The dapper band has performed at renowned jazz venues and swing dance club nights all over London. Some of them even know a few period partner dance moves and are liable to swing out on the dance floor for the Charleston or Lindy Hop! Founder member Mark Aguera (trumpet/piano) had been inspired by the energy and style of several swing dance club nights around town where the DJs play nothing but antique 78s on period equipment modified for modern speakers, while passionate patrons dance to riotious, hedonistic music from that heroic era. Over subsequent months the outfit settled as a seven piece ensemble, gigging at swing dance club nights and hallowed jazz venues all over town. Call for reservations and cover/minimum information.
