Singer/Songwriter and Pianist Jon Regen will open for world-renowned trumpeter Chris Botti on New Year's Eve at The Blue Note in NYC.
Regen, whose last CD Almost Home received critical acclaim around the globe, will front a band featuring Jonathan Sanborn on bass, and Sunny Jain on drums.
All Music Guide awarded Almost Home four stars, and Variety proclaimed, Regen takes cues from forebears like Randy Newman ... both in the sardonic bent of songs like the wry 'Only My Credit Card Remembers Where I've Been' and the laconically elegant tenor of 'Hold Out Your Heart.'"
Regen is currently recording Let It Go, the follow-up to Almost Home with producer Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson).
