For over two years, the David Raleigh Quartet and Charles R. Hale took their audiences on a journey…a musical journey, incorporating story and song called "Jazz in the City." The show has been performed at the Duplex Piano Bar, The Cell, Lehman College, The American Irish Historical Society and the Triad.
The show featured the stories and songs of the artists and composers who for the past 375 years have paid homage to city they call home. Many of their songs were popularized in New York’s venues like the Village Vanguard where Miles, Mingus and Monk performed and venues that are long gone, such as Cafe Society where Billy Holiday debuted “Strange Fruit.” And then there were the stories and songs that Charles associates with New York through ancestral, familial and personal recollections.
Now a second edition of the show is ready to be premiered. It's called "The Blues Meet Jazz...in the City" and it will again feature David Raleigh, Charles R. Hale and their great quartet....but "The Blues..." will also include Grammy nominated singer Nicole Zuraitis.
The first performance of this new work will be performed at Lehman College's Lovinger Theatre on Thursday, April 4, 12:30 pm. This is a free event sponsored by the City and Humanities Program and Joseph McElligott.
