MAY 1

Janet Klein & Parlor Boys

At Hotel Zoso, Palm Springs

Janet Klein | vocals, ukulele
Benny Brydern | violin
Tim Gill | cornet
Randy Woltz | piano
Marquis Howell II | bass


With her sleek bob haircut (usually with a flower placed just so), vintage fashion sense, strikingly beautiful looks and artfully customized ukulele, Janet Klein might seem at first to be a simple novelty act, a 21st-century hipster "ironically" recreating the subtly naughty looks of a fin-de-siecle French postcard. Then she opens her mouth to sing. There's no Betty Boop hiccups or Mae West-style brassiness in her charmingly original voice. And when she starts to play her ukulele, it's clear that this oft-ridiculed cousin of the guitar is neither prop nor gimmick, but a delightful and under-utilized musical instrument.

Bearing an ever-expanding repertoire of, as she puts it, "obscure, lovely and naughty songs from the 1910's , 20's and 30's,"
Janet Klein is a musical archeologist hiding in the body of an F. Scott Fitzgerald heroine. Destined to be a sell-out, this show welcomes the return of Benny Brydern on violin and Marquis Howell II on bass. These fellas tore up Jazzville last November with the Benny Brydern Hot Club!

Sandra is highly respected for her virtuosic scat ability, impeccable timing, crystalline tone and irrepressible musicality, she continues to push the musical envelope to create a style and sound that is her own. Her deep Southern roots and razor-sharp musical intuition are ever present in her interpretations of standards, covers and original compositions.

Lily Hernandez | vocals

Juan Moreno | congas

Bob Lawrence | trombone

Jazzville welcomes the return of the Calixto Oviedo Sextet with Lily Hernandez. Their show last year sold out fast! This is Afro-Cuban jazz at it's best...

Calixto Oviedo is a living encyclopedia of Cuban drumming and percussion. His innovative and brilliant techniques have made him the in-demand drummer for The Afro Cuban All Stars, Buena Vista Social Club, and Arturo Sandoval. Calixto's wife, Lily Hernandez, is vivacious and delivers Cuban canciones with a captivating voice and radiant stage presence.

✨JAZZVILLE✨presents the VDE Quartet featuring Kim Richmond. Kevin van den Elzen is a young, talented jazz drummer originally from the Netherlands who now resides in Los Angeles. I could name all of the big jazz drummers that Kevin has studied with, but he's come into his own...

Paired with Kim Richmond on sax this will be a memorable nite of straight-ahead jazz and swing grooves. For more than four decades, Kim has played on countless sessions with an astounding crop of A-list jazz giants.

This show also features Jazzville fave Adam Hersh on piano, and Daniel Massey, a young upright bass player whose talent defies his age.

Justo Almario | sax

Kenton Youngstrom | guitar

 

Margo's show at Jazzville Palm Springs will focus on music from her "Roots of Rey" album, which embraces her roots as an accomplished Latin jazz musician, presenting a modern American & Latin American songbook reimagined for the times.

 

Performed in English and Spanish, and arranged by multi-Grammy-winning pianist, Oscar Hernandez (Spanish Harlem Orchestra) who will be her pianist and musical director at Jazzville.

 

Fans of Nora Jones and Sade have much to celebrate because Margo's rich and sensual voice evokes these figures but in Rey’s case, her phrasing adds a personal and modern twist.

 

This show will be 90 mins with no break.

 

Margo is offering a limited Meet & Greet with photo op after the show, which includes and autographed CD. This backstage option can be added-on at $15 when you buy your ticket.
