Duchess is so happy to be returning to the Jazz Standard! We will be joined by our trio: Michael Cabe on piano, Matt Aronoff on bass and Jared Schonig on drums. Come hear some new material that we're working on, maybe a holiday tune or two (more if I win the vote) and have a Duchess cocktail to celebrate the season! Tickets available now!
I'm looking forward to ringing in 2018 at one of the loveliest listening rooms in town with some of my very favorite musicians, led by the wonderful Harry Allen. Details coming soon!
The renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to Damrosch Park to perform one of its signature pieces, Company B, a pacifist masterpiece that questions some of the American myths that emerged out of times of war. Originally set to nine songs performed by the Andrews Sisters, tonight’s performance will feature live music by the charismatic New York vocal trio Duchess. Duchess opens the evening with special guest, rising South African jazz singer Vuyo Sotashe. Taylor’s Airs, another celebrated classic of his repertoire with music by Handel, rounds out this sparkling evening of song and dance.
Duchess will be joined by Patrick Bartley on clarinet and tenor sax, Mike Sailors on trumpet, Josh Brown on trombone, Michael Cabe on piano, Matt Aronoff on bass and Jared Schonig on drums.
