Kurt Elling and Richard Galliano

Monday, November 25, 2013 - 6:00pm

Vocalist Kurt Elling and French accordionist Richard Galliano transport us from the New York vista of the Allen Room to the cafes of Paris and the plazas of Buenos Aires.  Don't miss this heartfelt collaboration exploring the art of the ballad.  We'll hear classics like Nicht Wandle, Mein Licht, an arrangement of the Beatles' Norwegian Wood, and La Vie en Rose. Wendell Pierce hosts.

Marshall Crenshaw

A quote from Trouser Press sums up Marshall Crenshaw’s early career: “Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, he soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself.” All Music Guide captured Crenshaw’s vibe perfectly: “He writes songs that are melodic, hooky and emotionally true, and he sings and plays them with an honesty and force that still finds room for humor without venom.”

Heather Maloney

“I prefer to start writing like I’m writing about somebody else, and maybe it turns out to be autobiographical,” she says. “Sometimes it even happens long after I’ve written the song and I’m performing it live, and I suddenly feel naked, like, ‘Whoa, this is really about me, isn’t it?’ It’s just that I’m in a room full of people when I realize it.”

JEWMONGOUS, a comedy song concert with occasional guests, is the colicky, uncircumcised brain child of SEAN ALTMAN: the golden-voiced song-writing wiz and former leader/founder of Rockapella (yes - of "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" TV fame).

Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group

New York-based pianist, composer, educator, and author Lewis Porter combines forces with saxophonist and composer Phil Scarff in this dynamic quartet. From jazz standards to contemporary treatments of traditional Indian classical fare, and from melodic originals to free-wheeling improvisation, East emerges from West and the audacious emerges from the contemplative. “Lewis Porter… a helluva piano player.” - Jazz Times “Indian classical music on the saxophone! Phil Scarff… played different ragas with finesse… enthralled the audience… subtle and appealing,” - Times of India
