FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed “Best of New York” by New York Magazine, and “an invaluable New York institution” by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the debut of critically acclaimed vocalist, JUDY WEXLER as she celebrates the release of her latest CD, Dreams and Shadows with songs by Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern to Oscar Brown Jr., Bob Dylan, Burt Bacharach and Abbey Lincoln. The show, which features Jeff Colella on piano, Bill Moring on bass, and Anthony Pinciotti on drums, runs Thursday and Friday, August 13 and 14 at 8:30 PM at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
JUDY WEXLER has sung at the Blue Note in New York, Blues Alley in Washington, DC, Jazz Alley in Seattle, the Tel Aviv Jazz Festival, the San Jose Jazz Festival, and the Temecula Valley International Jazz Festival.; she has also headlined in venues as diverse as Montreal, Istanbul, Vancouver and , Miami, the Sundance Film Festival, and the 2006 IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) conference in New York, garnering rave reviews.
A natural storyteller, with a distinctive voice, full of shadings, Judy is also one of the most focused, unpretentious, no-nonsense, bop-oriented jazz singers around," according to Harvey Siders in JazzTimes, with an instinctive ability to bring out the best in each song, often taking it into unfamiliar territory," wrote Ken Dryden in All Music Guide. Her 2005 debut, Easy on The Heart, made radio waves and introduced her to a wide jazz audience; now comes the follow-up… debuting at #2 on the national JazzWeek chart, Dreams & Shadows, confirms her ability to find great songs and effortlessly bring them to life. Dreams & Shadows was the #2 new release for 2008 on KKJZ's (L.A.'s jazz station) Top 88 List, #51 in all new releases for 2008 on the national JazzWeek chart, and was named on several Top 10 lists for 2008.
