BWW Reviews: Postmodern Jukebox Entertains in their O.C. Debut ConcertBWW Reviews: Postmodern Jukebox Entertains in their O.C. Debut Concert
by Michael L. Quintos - Jan 30, 2015

The results? Refreshingly educational, absolutely irresistible, and, most important of all, genuinely entertaining. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Celebrating Release of Her New CD, Jazzy Joanne Tatham's Birdland Debut Never Quite SoarsBWW Reviews: Celebrating Release of Her New CD, Jazzy Joanne Tatham's Birdland Debut Never Quite Soars
by Andrew Martin - Jan 30, 2015

Cabaret in New York has never suffered from a dearth of impressive jazz-oriented chanteuses. These include such past and present delights as Mary Foster Conklin, Laurie Krauz, Sally Mayes, Janis Siegel, Kat Gang, and the late Claiborne Cary. It is therefore most unfortunate that Birdland, an otherwise-impeccable jazz nightspot, had to suffer the recent show of Joanne Tatham (celebrating the recent release of her CD Out of My Dreams). While Tatham drew a very good house indeed, the lady has very little business referring to what she does as 'jazz.' In fact, it's not even cabaret. What Tatham delivers is really more a sad club act that couldn't even take it's place among the bluest of blues. (more...)
