John Chin and Sasha Masakowski wrap up their From Mardi Gras to Carnival show on Nov 25 (last minute tickets here), but there's barely a break before Canadian trumpet starlet Bria Skonberg and her quintet take over. From Nov 27 to Dec 2, they've got a special show entitled My Ideal: Honoring Chet Baker, paying homage to one of the greatest jazz trumpeters and vocalists of the 20th century. Tickets for that right here.
That's followed by something a bit different: New York Swing Jazz Night on Dec 8, where they clear out the tables to make a dance-floor. Expect Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman and Frank Sinatra, performed by Bria's Quintet. Do you have two left feet? No problem. They're including a masterclass in the ticket price, which'll teach you the basic swing dance moves, and they throw in some liquid courage. Tickets here.
Going into December, we've got rumors of American jazz composer and big band leader Dominick Farinacci with English-American vocalist Lucy Woodword. For January, it looks like multi-Grammy Award winner Ulysses Owens Jr., known mostly for his work with Christian McBride and Kurt Elling, is leading a quartet in support of Shane Jones.
Stay tuned for more!
