OLETA ADAMS

Friday & Saturday
September 11 & 12
Show: $40
Dinner and Show: $80


Since the runaway success of her 1990 debut album Circle of One (which went Platinum), and the impassioned hit single "Get Here" (the Brenda Russell composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War) Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music. Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy.

Oleta Adams' mahogany alto is so warm and gracious, her interpretations so distinct, that you immediately know her voice, regardless of the tune. - L. Michael Gipson/soultracks.com

Music is a universal language that reaches deeper than words, and connects us all heart to heart.

“Heart to Heart” is a journey in song through the lens of the heart including tender moments, tearful ballads and joyful play. From Barbra to Broadway to “Begin Again” and beyond, spiced with some originals by Linda Marks, this CD includes songs that inspire, touch the heart and make you smile.

"..on a cold night in January this reviewer decided to experience the Jamie Baum Septet at Joe's Pub in the east village. The experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Each tune was gripping, and played to perfection by the ensemble. The best compliment that can be given to such compositional creativity is that all concept of the passage of time was lost I had been transported for what seemed like precious few moments, but it was enough to leave me breathless and wanting more."

John Pizzarelli, the world-renowned jazz guitarist and singer, was called “Hip with a wink” by Town & Country, “madly creative” by the Los Angeles Times and “the genial genius of the guitar” by The Toronto Star. After his recent smash success with the Boston Pops, he was hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” And the Seattle Times called him “a tour de force” and “a rare entertainer of the old school.”

Following a recent Pizzarelli performance at Birdland, George W. Harris of jazzweekly.com had this to say: ” Here at the Birdland club in NYC, Pizzarelli displays not only his musical charms, but his ability to “work a room” by delivering clever introductions or jokes to segue into each tune, turning the jazz joint into a talent show by the camp fire."

JOSE JAMES

NEW CD: YESTERDAY I HAD THE BLUES THE MUSIC OF BILLIE HOLIDAY
