Hot on the heels of their sensational debut CD Dangerous Liaisons, recording artist Sylvia Brooks and her company of six top West Coast jazz musicians, will again set the standard with a return performance at the world renowned Catalina Bar & Grill on April 15, 2010 at 8:00 PM. "Sylvia Brooks and her musicians carve out a drama and a sound which is its own celebration, a high-art homage to an era that is too often merely made nostalgic."
After setting an all-time record on ALL ABOUT JAZZ.COM, for the "most downloaded song of the day since 2005" with her smoky rendition of Harlem Nocturne, Brooks will once again be featured on ALL ABOUT JAZZ.COM on April 2nd with her new music video Cry Me a River.
Brooks and her musicians capture the drama, the sophistication and the quiet storm of emotions that lie behind the most legendary songs of our time, while reinterpreting and reinvigorating them for a new audience. “I believe there’s a whole new generation that’s hungry for something real…something that has depth. So much of jazz today has lost the heart and soul of what this great music was trying to convey.”
A six time Los Angeles Times Critics Choice in Jazz and World, this is an evening, and a performance that should not be missed.
