Jeremy Kahn 2/9-15
Jazz pianist Jeremy Kahn proudly states that he’s played with everyone from Joni Mitchell and Dizzy Gillespie to Aretha Franklin and Alvin and the Chipmunks, not to mention Barbara Cook, Charlie Haden and Max Roach. After a few years in New York City, Jeremy is back in his native Chicago and divides his time between his own concerts, teaching and playing in pit orchestras for theatrical productions. Jeremy enjoys it all and talked to me about how each facet of his creative life feeds the others.
Susan Glatzer 2/16-22
After spending years as a film executive at Paramont and other studios--on the production and acquisition side of things--Susan Glatzer has taken on directing with her uplifting documentary on the swing dance craze, Alive and Kicking. Susan has been an avid swing dancer herself for years and has seen the popularity of this joyful art form grow and expand throughout the world.
Danny Bacher 2/23-3/1
Saxophonist/vocalist, Danny Bacher is a jazz musician who is proud to call himself an entertainer, a label that is often shunned by the jazz community. Danny and his brother were a touring comedy team for years and Danny proudly mentions his membership in the New York Friars Club in all of his press materials.
Danny Bacher draws on his in acting and comedy experience and his love of American Standards with his latest CD, I’m Still Happy, which celebrates his positive take on life.
Spencer Day 3/2-8
Singer/songwriter, Spencer Day grew up in a small town in rural Arizona dreaming of the glamorous, sunny, Hollywood life and the noir New York equivalent he saw in the movies. This fantasy informed his writing, along with his love for jazz, musical theater, cabaret, soul and pop music. With his latest CD, Angel City, Spencer explores thoughts on love, fame and narcissism, and how an artist can maintain integrity and authenticity in a world that so often values neither.
Mark Winkler 3/9-15
Singer/songwriter, Mark Winkler is a happy guy and wants to spread that attitude around. He loves a good ballad but entertaining with a sense of fun is a high priority. Mark considers himself a jazz singer in the tradition of cool sophisticates like Bobby Troup and Hoagy Carmichael, and also loves Barbra Streisand and Laura Nyro.
His latest CD, Eastern Standard Time, brings together Mark’s wide musical focus and pairs him with his favorite musical partner, Cheryl Bentyne.
