Eric Comstock (piano/voice) and Barbara Fasano (voice) bring their singular, soulful showmanship home to Birdland for this June residency playing June 11, 18 and 25. Drawing from eclectic influences – Sinatra and Cole Porter classics to singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Carole King – the married musical couple’s electrifying combination of warmth, wit, swing, and sensuality have made them the nightclub world’s most celebrated team. Their performances have taken them from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to Saratoga Jazz Festival, Music Mountain Twilight Jazz, London’s Pizza Express, Italy’s Monteverdi Tuscany, and nightclubs and music festivals across the country. Their new CD, PAINTING THE TOWN, featuring tenor saxophone legend Houston Person, drops later this year.

7 pm – Leslie Ayvazian: MENTION MY BEAUTY at Pangea

Tickets available here.

MENTION MY BEAUTY is a one-woman performance piece of Leslie Ayvazian reading from her memoirs.  She speaks candidly about navigating the anti-war movement, the women’s movement, and the sexual revolution. There’s also the heartbreak of the expectations of Armenian parents still reeling from the Genocide of 1915.  Leslie tells decidedly unsentimental, often hilarious stories of her life as a young woman surviving the cultural revolution without a plan.

Price: Tickets online are $20. Tickets at the door, if available, are $25 (Cash Only). There is a $20 minimum per person (food or beverage).
