On Tuesday, March 11, 2014, I will be away from my computer, but for the best reasons: the Beloved and I will be at the Rossmoor Jazz Club (in Walnut Creek — details here) for a comfortably warm evening of hot music provided by Stephanie Trick, Paolo Alderighi, pianos; Marty Eggers, string bass; Danny Coots, drums. I have been told by the trustworthy Robert Burch that the theatre where all this takes place is comfortable, it seats 500, and dancers are welcome. Admission is $10 (members) and $15 (non-members), and one can become a member with an annual payment of $30. The concert begins at 7:30, but you’ll want to get their earlier.
And just in case you haven’t heard Stephanie and Paolo, I offer these four beautiful performances from their November 2013 appearance at the San Diego Jazz Fest. The room was dark; the sounds were glowing.
THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT:
TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE (and why not? The rewards are evident):
Their mock-battle, all in fun, on BILL BAILEY:
See you there. And check out the bill of fare for the rest of 2014: excellent music is on the menu.
May your happiness increase!
