Vocalist Rip Crystal will performing with jazz guitarist John Chiodini at the Gardenia Supper Club in Hollywood, Ca on Monday nights - June 11th, 18th and 25th. Call 323-467-7444 for more information.

Crystal's favorite music has always been the West Coast jazz of the late fifties and early sixties featuring artists like Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, Bob Brookmeyer and Clifford Brown. A few months ago Rip heard John Chiodini play the guitar and John heard Rip sing. They knew at that moment they had to make music together. Their versatile styles blend into one rich sound and explore a wide gamut of genres--from swing to bebop to blues to Latin to pop.

Rip Crystal's father produced jazz concerts and managed the legendary Commodore Music Shop in Manhattan. His uncle, Milt Gabler, created the Commodore Jazz label and went on to head Decca Records for thirty years.

John Chiodini toured, wrote and recorded with Peggy Lee. He has also toured and recorded with Natalie Cole, Maynard Ferguson, Shirley Horn, Hubert Laws, Nina Simone and Johnny Mandel.

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.
