Event Date:

Donny Hathaway

Monday, October 3, 2011 - 7:00pm

Rolling Stone called him “a major new force in soul music.” His collaborations with Roberta Flack scored high on the charts and won him a Grammy Award. Six years later, his body was found outside his hotel in New York City; his death ruled a suicide. Celebrate the life and music of a soul legend with host Tom Shaker. It starts at 7pm this Monday!

Sara Serpa

Vocalist-composer-bandleader Sara Serpa is “the magical voice” according to pianist Ran Blake, who knows a thing or two about singers. Her unadorned, vibratoless delivery has been described as “smooth as glass” and her ability to sing complex vocalese lines on an equal footing with instrumentalists marks her as one of the most innovative singers of recent years. Praised by All About Jazz as “the freshest vocalist on the scene at the moment,” the 31-year-old Serpa has risen from the Hot Clube Jazz of her native Lisbon to New York’s Village Vanguard in a surprisingly short time.

Florencia Gonzalez Big Band

In her Big Band she mixes all Duke Ellington, Gill Evans, Bella Bartok, and many other great masters’ arranging techniques with her eclectic musical background which makes this big band stand out from other standard big bands.

Her band incorporates extra woodwind colors, such as flutes and clarinets, and other instruments from the classical orchestra, such as French horn, and of course, some candombe drums here and there, all which bring the traditional big band to another level.
