Jazimina and Gordon team up for a concert of songs from the American Songbook. Beloved jazz standards and show tunes from the early to mid 1900’s represent a golden age of melody, and continue to be interpreted in many different styles by a wide range of musicians, including many contemporary singers.
The unique flavor of this concert program is suggested by the diverse backgrounds of the musicians. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, Jazimina has sung at Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood, the Aspen Music Festival, and Marlboro Music Festival. Locally she has sung with Music on Norway Pond, Electric Earth Concerts, Ashuelot Concerts, and the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music. She has also put together creative new programs interspersing classical songs with poetry and original stories.
Gordon’s musical background is more in the folk arena, with some seasoning from rock and roll and blues influences.
The American Songbook, which includes classics from Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, and others, is a temptation hard to resist. Audiences are delighted by the many ways that the familiar songs can be interpreted.
With the sophistication of art song and the freedom of folk music, the American Songbook is a perfect musical meeting place for MacNeil and Peery, and a treasure trove for all.
Doors are at 7pm, music will begin at 8. The kitchen is open until 8pm.
