Aids Emergency Relief Fund Christmas Dinner

My friend and producer, Kathy Holly, invited me to join her and pianist David Baioni and perform at the Aids Emergency Relief Fund Christmas Eve Dinner the afternoon of December 24th.  We were the first act of the show and were introduced  by none other than a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence!  The event took place at the War Memorial Veterans Building and had about 1000 people in attendance.  It was a heartwarming experience and  gift  for me to be able to participate in this way.  Thanks, Kathy!

Performing and celebrating a birthday with friends make for a great combo

I want to thank all who came out to the November 1st show at the Villa D’Este. We had Monday night football, the World Series and Dancing with the Stars to compete with but many people came out that night and I so appreciated it.

A week of Jazz immersion

Just back from a week at my first Stanford Jazz Residency. Studied with Madeleine Eastman, Dena De Rose and Fred Harris. I sang a lot and listened more. Every night there was an amazing concert with people like saxaphonists, Joshua Redman and Andrew Speight, pianists, George Cables and Taylor Eigsti, bassists, Larry Grenadier and Reuben Rogers, and drummers, Eddie Marshall, Clarence Penn and Eric Harland.

I was lucky enough to be able to join the Latin Jazz big band under the direction of the great flutist, John Calloway and after three days working really hard to memorize Dos Gardenias Para Ti, which most remember from the Buena Vista Social Club film, I performed it in the courtyard outside of the Stanford cafeteria and coffeehouse. Holding one’s own in the midst of about nine horn players, two drummers, marracas, piano, and bass really required focus and determination. Glad to have had that experience and look forward to trying that again one day soon!

I’ll be singing tonight at the Villa D’Este and am curious to see what the experience is like after a week of intensive immersion in the music of Jazz.

Singing in the garden one lovely autumn afternoon

I was invited to sing at Deborah Tabroff’s garden jazz party this past Saturday at her lovely home in Mountain View.  Deborah is a landscape artist as well as a talented vocalist, and the gardens are sweet.  There is a coi pond, trompe l’oeuil mural of Cabo San Lucas, lovely trees and flowers and a great stage set up under redwood trees.  I sang Autumn Leaves because I always think of that song this time of year  and Alright,  Ok, You Win, a new dance song I’ve been working on after hearing it recently when I took the Free Linda Hop class in Golden Gate Park.
