I think the appearance of Ms. Rebecca Kilgore, a/k/a Becky, is cause for sustained celebration . . . so CARPE THE SWING DIEM.
Ms. K is making a flying visit to the New York / New Jersey area for what seems like two choruses, although in reality there will be two evenings of delightful music. Since TEMPUS FUGIT (that’s the last of the Latin for today), please mark your calendars, wear comfrotable shoes, and get ready for beauty.
On Sunday, April 28, 2013, Rebecca will be appearing at Smalls, 183 W. 10th Street, New York City, with Ehud Asherie and Dan Barrett, from 7:30-9:30.
On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, she will grace Shanghai Jazz, 24 Main Street, Madison, New Jersey (973.822.2899) with Mark Shane, Dan Barrett, and Joel Forbes.
And here’s our Becky — at the Jazz Bash by the Bay in Monterey 2011 — with Dan Barrett, Carl Sonny Leyland, Eddie Erickson, Joel Forbes, and Jeff Hamilton:
May your happiness increase.
