Vicky Mountain - our busiest girl in local show business has yet another performance coming up. This time part of the TC Jazz Society - "Jazz From J To Z" series. Jimmy Van Heusen was a prolific composer who worked mainly with lyricists Johnny Burke & Sammy Cahn. Many will know his tunes from the On the Road To ... movies with Bing, Bob & Dorothy Lamour. He was also a go-to guy for Frank Sinatra. Moonlight Becomes You, Swinging On A Star, Here's That Rainy Day, High Hopes, All The Way, ... a huge and impressive list will be featured as long with fellow TCCAN members Arne Fogel & Phil Mattson in guest starring roles - who will be Bob and who will be Bing?? Come see @ Bloomington Arts Center Black Box Theater on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 8:00 PM..... Incidentally - Vicky will be the first artist featured on our new TCCAN podcast Cabaret Conversations in the next few weeks in case you are not able to make the show.
Sheridan Zuther - our 2nd busiest gal in town is also taking the stage. She will be at Jazz Central with her solo show “For the Cats, By the Cats.” Anyone who has seen Sheridan knows she brings tons of personality as well as talent to the stage. And this will be a Live Recording gig, so she would love to have that extra energy in the house. She promises a world premiere of a song or two by jazz sax legend Richie Cole and also some great R&B on the B3 organ - which is finally fixed up and waitin’. At Jazz Central - our familiar haunt @ Thursday, January 10 at 8:00 PM. $5-10 donation. BYOD (wine, beer, tea, whatev ~ Jazz Central ain’t a bar, it’s about the music)
And not to be upstaged - our grand dame Dorothy Doring will be doing her thing at the Artists Quarter in St Paul. She is releasing a new CD - "Compositions by Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn" that night. And also sharing the stage with Phil Mattson who must be a very in-demand kind of guy! It is a duo project and will be on Friday Jan. 18th @ 9:00 PM with a $10 cover for the late night crowd.
