CLEAR YOUR CALENDARS: BECKY, HARRY, and FRIENDS in NEW YORK CITY (TWICE!) October 2012

Miss Kilgore (who answers to Becky or Rebecca) and Mister Allen (Harry to one and all) will be performing in New York City in the very near future . . . don’t miss these rare appearances!

On Friday, October 5, beginning at 7 PM, Rebecca and the Harry Allen Quintet will be having a good time with their tribute to the music of Marilyn Monroe, SOME LIKE IT HOT, at the New York Historical Society (170 Central Park West at Richard Gilder Way [77th Street], New York, NY 10024.  Phone (212) 873-3400.)  As I understand, this program is free with admission to the museum, and admission is by donation.  Details here.

On Monday, October 8, Harry will be creating another of his Monday night music parties at Feinstein’s at Loew’s Regency — featuring our Becky and singers Lynn Roberts, Nicki Parrott, pianist Mike Renzi, bassist Joel Forbes, drummer Zach Campbell.  There is, I believe, a $20 music charge and a minimum: the Regency is located at 540 Park Avenue (at 61st Street), New York, NY 10021.  Phone: 212-339-4095.  Details here.

Since Miss Kilgore and Mister Allen make wonderful music together, and since our Rebecca lives on the other side of the continent in Portland, Oregon, might I suggest most gently that you see these musicians in action?

May your happiness increase.

DON’T FORGET THIS SUNDAY DATE: HARRY ALLEN and FRIENDS at FEINSTEIN’S (Sunday, June 10, 2012)

I’m writing this post in delighted anticipation . . .

Harry Allen and his gifted friends have had a wonderful series of Monday night musical soirees at Feinstein’s at the Regency in New York City for more than a year now.  The June 10, 2012 evening promises to be just as much fun.  Harry will be there from 7 to 10 PM, performing two sets.  The first will be with his quartet: Rossano Sportiello, piano; Joel Forbes, string bass; Chuck Riggs, drums.  Then, after a short interval, the quartet will be embellished by Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet, Joe Temperley, baritone saxophone, and perhaps a surprise guest.

If you haven’t been to Feinstein’s before, the drinks are large; the staff is friendly; the room is comfortable; the sight lines and the acoustics are first-rate.

Now here’s the part where readers have to — in the words of Jake Hanna — PAY ATTENTION.

Harry’s Monday night party is taking place on SUNDAY, June 10.  Just this once.  Feinstein’s is otherwise occupied on Monday, and no one wanted to miss a Harry Allen gig.  So mark it down, check it twice, and join us!

Feinstein’s at Loews Regency is located at 540 Park Avenue (at 61st Street) on the East Side of Manhattan: call 212-339-4095 for information / pricing / reservations.  Visit feinsteins for details.

And in case you haven’t heard Harry and Rossano recently, here’s a sample (recorded in duet at Smalls in mid-April):

May your happiness increase.
