Singer Hilary Gardner and pianist Ehud Asherie have created consistently gratifying music on their appearances — most recently at Mezzrow (163 West Tenth Street, New York City, just east of Seventh Avenue South). I offer evidence below.
That’s cheering news to say the least. But the best news is that they are returning for two performances on Tuesday, September 29, 2015: shows at 7:30 and 9 PM, $20 music charge for each show. You can buy tickets here, and I urge you to do so promptly, because Mezzrow is a small space. (That’s a wonderful thing, by the way: it is the ideal of New York City jazz clubs, with apologies to the others.)
I first heard Hilary and Ehud in duet at Smalls in April 2013 — which seems so long ago that the videos are in black and white: here.
As you can see and hear, their repertoire stretches back to the early collaborations of Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers, and forward to the present. But the beauty they create is always NOW. And you might consider immersing yourself in it, if you can, before it becomes the THEN. See you there.
May your happiness increase!
