As part of our year-round commitment to ‘live’ jazz, we are planning a special event on May 4. This exciting double bill will feature NY-based vocalist Elli Fordyce, plus the Boston-based Jazz Tuber Trio. It will take place in the intimate setting of the backroom at Baba Louie’s, where we presented Armen Donelian in October, 2011, in one of our most memorable concerts ever.
Originally from Manhattan, Elli Fordyce is a highly accomplished vocalist and actor. She has performed all over the New York Metro area and throughout North America, including appearances in the New York Cabaret Convention and in festivals. She will be backed by a trio headed by pianist Andy Jaffe.
Headed by Eli Newberger, who was a founder of the New Black Eagle Jazz Band. The Jazz Tuber Trio comprises leader Newberger on tuba (and occasionally keyboards); vocalist/banjoist Jimmy Mazzy, and reedman Ted Casher.
The performance will start at 8pm, in Baba Louie’s Backroom, home of the best pizza in Berkshire County, 34 Depot St., Pittsfield, Mass. You can pay the $20 admission in advance here:
