I’m thrilled to celebrate my NPR show Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired—now in its 17th year—in the new, gorgeous Steinway Hall in Manhattan. My association with Steinway is long: They honored me as a Steinway Artist 30 years ago! Yes, I’ve been a Steinway Artist since the piano was invented. Well, not quite.
Steinway and Sons was one of my initial underwriters for Jazz Inspired and they continue to support me in multiple ways. One of the ways, is an elegant champagne PARTY and recital at their new location and you’re invited! I’ll have my quartet with Harry Allen, Chris Flory and Pat O’Leary and special guest pianist, conductor, composer, arranger (for Diana Krall and other fab folks) ALAN BROADBENT. I’ve been a fan of Alan since his days with Charlie Hayden’s Quartet West and was thrilled when he agreed to play a tune or two at our event.
Many of my past guests will be there so you’ll hear some wonderful music, drink champagne, eat hors d’oeuvres and meet some wonderful people, all in Steinway’s new state of the art theater. It only seats 70 so it will be an intimate crowd.
Please join us and if you can’t, please include us in your end of year donations. Jazz Inspired is funded primarily through individual donors like you. No gift is too small and we can’t do it without you.
Thanks so much and here’s to a wonderful holiday season!
