More music in November!
Witkowsky & Arteaga Duo. Saturday 15th
Starting this weekend at THE GALLERY / Casa Mezcal, we will bring music for piano & voice to this art space & restaurant downtown NY, Saturday afternoons from 1 to 4.
For this first concert l will be joining the wonderful Deanna Witkowsky and her Brazilian/ jazz piano this Saturday 15th.
Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition and a former guest on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz, pianist/composer/vocalist Deanna Witkowski has been heralded for her “consistently thrilling” playing and her “boundless imagination” (All Music Guide). Moving with remarkable ease between Brazilian, jazz, Afro-Cuban and classical music, Witkowski approaches her work with the heart and technique of a daring improviser. Her most current album, From This Place, features her liturgical jazz and led to a second appearance on National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition Sunday. Her fifth recording, a solo project featuring arrangements that blend Chopin nocturnes with Brazilian and jazz standards, will be released in 2014
If you haven’t listened to her music yet, in this link you can hear excerpts from her new CD: http://www.deannawitkowski.com/recordings.shtml
The concert includes brunch plus one drink for only $ 13.
THE GALLERY is at Casa Mezcal, 86 Orchard St. New York.
