RICKIE LEE JONES AT SFJAZZ Sings in Great Voice But Poor Form in Davies Symphony Gig 5/27
by Mike Ward - Jun 05, 2011

A great premise for an evening of music from an iconic singer, RICKIE LEE JONES AT SFJAZZ brought great vocal chops but undermined her gains with a lack of organizational skills as well as taking out her frustrations on the band in front of the audience. Dressed in attire you might roll out of bed in on your way to making coffee for an early morning lounge-about with the crossword puzzle, the evening became an unintentional pastiche of past history with present disorganization. What could have been a 'win-win' became a 'why-what' for all. (more...)

Elaine Amherd Releases NOW AND FROM NOW ON CD
by BWW News Desk - May 24, 2011

Now And From Now On, the debut American release from the amazing Swiss import singer/guitarist/songwriter Eliane Amherd, introduces US audiences to the freshest new talent to come into the world of jazz, AfroCaribbean and Brazilian music in a very long time.

BWW Reviews: Comic Actor Dan Frischman Turns to Cabaret @ Sterling's
by Don Grigware - May 16, 2011

On Sunday, May 15 comic actor Dan Frischman debuted a cabaret act @ Sterling's Upstairs @ Vitello's to a very enthusiastic crowd. Distinctly different from the normal fare @ Sterling's, which is usually a program of Broadway pop singing, Frischman's eclectic gig included magic, comedy and playing the trombone backed by a six-piece orchestra. There were two talented guest singers on the bill, Lani Shipman and Mitch Lewis, who served as backup vocalists; Shipman also performed a solo of a tune whose lyrics and music were composed by ... Dan Frischman. This is one very versatile man, this Dan Frischman, known to most from the 80s sitcom Head of the Class, He has a unique style of comedy that is at once charming and captivating. During his opening, for example, he made three different color paper flowers appear in a hand-held vase as he moved, swayed and sang 'All I Wanna Do'. What a character! (more...)
