Tuesday September 20 8pm and 10pm Sweet Rhythm 88 7th Ave and Bleecker St., NYC reservations: (212) 255-3626

Lisa Sokolov - Vocals and keyboards, with Cameron Brown on bass, John DiMartino on piano, and Gerry Hemingway on drums.

Lisa premieres new material from her upcoming recording as well as selections from her widely acclaimed CD “Presence"

“Presence" won 15 Best CD of 2004 citations including Downbeat Magazine “5 Star Masterpiece".

“As far removed stylistically from the reigning royalty of female jazz vocalists as John Coltrane is from Grover Washington, Lisa Sokolov fills every moment of Presence with just that. Exceptionally expressive, dramatic, and ecstatic... a tour de force, masterful and life-affirming. This is jazz vocalizing filled with passion and commitment." DownBeat

“The most impressive single song I've heard this year, or damn near any other year, is Lisa Sokolov's brighter-than-a-thousand-suns detonation of “Oh What a Beautiful Morning." [Sokolov] defines a dimension in vocal performance that hardly anyone ever dares to enter: dramatic, visceral, blood chilling." Village Voice - Best of 2004

“This is music moving at the velocity of a bullet, creativity and invention years ahead of its time. Ms. Sokolov is changing the face of jazz vocals" All About Jazz

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
