Singer Julia Gottlieb and her band of renowned jazz players in concert on February 18th, 2011. The first set is at 9 p.m. and the second set will begin at 10:30 p.m. at the Blue Whale in Los Angeles, CA. Guitarist Larry Koonse, bassist Kevin Axt, and drummer Ray Brinker are some of the best players in L.A. and will be backing Julia as she performs standards and originals alike. She will be singing tunes from the upcoming CD and will also be showcasing some new material.
Julia has the power to interpret classic jazz standards with fresh emotion and effortless delivery. Her voice is soothing and smoky, evoking chanteuses from eras past while simultaneously conjuring a new style all her own. Most recently, she's ventured into the world of songwriting, penning her own material in an effort to explore more personal territory.
Julia began classical piano and voice training at such a young age, she is unable to remember a time before music. After attending New York's New School for Jazz and Contemporary music, she toured extensively with both a guitar trio and a swing group, respectively. Though passionate about touring, the self-professed homebody has enjoyed living in Los Angeles while recording her album.
The Blue Whale is located at 123 Astronaut E S Onizuka St, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Call (213) 620-0908 for additional venue information.
