Duo 2001

About the Album: About the Artist Mike Strickland was born to a musical family in Jackson, Mississippi in 1953, and has been creating his own music since he was a young child. In Mikes words, (He) simply always liked it. It was easy and natural, never difficult. Formal lessons, as a youngster, were followed by studies at the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, and California State University at Northridge. Mike's professional career originated while he was at college with the discovery that instead of studying for his business degree he was composing and playing music five to six hours a day. He began performing whenever and wherever he could. Venues were as varied as formats. Over the next twenty years Mike played with piano trios, country, rock and jazz bands, and backed up opera performances. He delighted audiences in places as diverse as Rocky Mt. ski resorts and Caribbean cruise ships. He considers versatility his strength as an entertainer and draws on his wealth of musical experience for his recordings. Product Description Classy and elegant, fun and swinging, this newest release from pianist Mike Strickland is full of musical nostalgia and surprises. All the songs are classic jazz standards, and Mike draws upon his Mississippi roots to give each song its own special arrangement. Sometimes relaxing, sometimes just plain toe-tapping, this recording is sure to please any piano afficionado. And the addition of bassist Clipper Anderson adds so much warmth and vibrancy to the music. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this duo who have been performing together in the Pacific Northwest for the last seven years.

Review: The Second City's 112th Mainstage Revue
by Rachel Weinberg - June 14, 2024

The Second City’s 112th Mainstage Revue, THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETOURS, promises “weird, sexy comedy” in its opening moments. This ensemble definitely hits on the weird and occasionally hits on the funny. I think this revue, while not always consistently funny, gave this ensemble some real moments to shine. And as with past Second City revues I’ve seen, the show’s mix of sketch and improv has lively energy, and the wide variety of sketches presented made me curious to see what comes next.
