What Are You Doing New Years Eve? Here’re some Yoko-approved Shows!
For the first time since I can’t even remember when, I won’t be performing on New Years Eve. There will be plenty of livestreaming jazz though! Here are four different performances, any of which I would recommend. First is one of the greatest jazz singers of this generation, Kurt Elling. Second is one of the most talented pianists around who happens to be a fellow Ellora Management artist, Hiromi. Third is the amazing pianist Emmet Cohen with special guests Houston Person and Samara Joy. Last but certainly not least is the fabulous singer Marianne Solivan!
I wish everyone a Happy New Year! I very much look forward to seeing you in 2021, until then please stay safe, healthy, and happy. I’m sending my love to you all.
Happy New Year! I’ll miss ringing in the New Year at Monkfish with you like I’ve been lucky enough to do for the past 3-4 years!
If I’m not mistaken, you’re the photographer that I’ve chatted with at the Poli Jazz Club and the Litchfield Jazz Festival. Indeed, circumstances have been most unfortunate. I hope that you’ll have better luck next year. I’m still photographing by shooting the computer screen during on-line performances. High ISO. If you haven’t tried this, why not do so? I’ve had some surprising results. Are they good? Not neccessarily, but it’s been fun. Here’s to a better year. Don Logie
Hi Don! Yes indeed, that’s me. I spotted you on Yoko’s holiday show on Facebook and said hi to you there too but I don’t know if you saw that amid all the other comments on that video. Like you, I’ve been starved for live music and have taken to snapping screenshots of livestreamed shows. Not as fun but it’ll have to do for now. Kinda funny that we’re both taking pictures of the computer screens in the meantime! Hope you’re doing well otherwise! -Janice
Nice to hear from you, Yoko.
Hi Toby, I hope you had a wonderful holiday! Wishing you and Jerome a healthy and happy new year ❤️
