With his "Pandeiro Jazz" project Scott Feiner has expanded the possibilities and perception of the Brazilian pandeiro worldwide - an instrument not normally spoken of in the same context with American music. Feiner has walked a fascinating road from the jazz world of Manhattan to the nightlife of Rio de Janeiro. Born in New York City, and formally a guitarist, Feiner received a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies/Guitar at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, Connecticut, where he studied with the legendary saxophonist Jackie McLean. During the early '90s he was a respected guitarist on the New York jazz scene, playing with some of the city's finest musicians. In 1999, during his first trip to Brazil, Feiner discovered the pandeiro, the percussion instrument that would become his passion and new means of musical expression. He moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2001 and after only a few years became a respected pandeirista, playing in the traditional settings of Rio. In March 2014 Feiner released his fourth album, "A View From Below", which also highlights his talents as a composer. There is a $25 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

Over the course of a multifaceted career spanning four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. Ever the fearless voyager, explorer, pioneer and keeper of tradition, the 3-time Grammy-winner won the 2011 GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): TO BILLIE WITH LOVE FROM DEE DEE. Bridgewater's career has always bridged musical genres.

After a foray into the pop world during the 1980s, she relocated to Paris and began to turn her attention back to jazz. Signing with the Universal Music Group as a producer (Bridgewater produces all of her CDs), Bridgewater released a series of critically acclaimed titles beginning with Keeping Tradition in 1993.

Its 11 songs seamlessly weave all three genres into a highly original approach defined by nakedly honest storytelling and the live-wire emotionalism of Magness' two-and-a-half octave range, buoyed by arrangements that effortlessly blend traditional sounds with edgy experimentation. Magness had much to overcome in making this adventurous album. But Original finds the Los Angeles-based artist undefeated - turning in her finest recorded vocal performances, co-writing a majority of tracks for the first time and testing herself by taking risks along with her production foil Dave Darling, whose credits include Glen Campbell, Brian Setzer, Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx and Stray Cats, and whose instincts compelled Magness to tap her deepest creative powers and led the songs to sonically unpredictable places.

King is initially known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop. King reached a whole new audience with his film debut in the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack, but establishing himself as a serious dramatic actor as well. Chris Thomas King has been a determined progressive, hoping to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach and adamantly refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation. King eventually modified that approach to a certain degree, attempting to create a more explicit link between blues tradition and the general musical present. Call for cover/minimum information.

NYC: DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER AT THE BLUE NOTE

Iconic jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Friday through Sunday, August 29th through 31st with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. Over the course of a multifaceted career spanning four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. Ever the fearless voyager, explorer, pioneer and keeper of tradition, the 3-time Grammy-winner won the 2011 GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): TO BILLIE WITH LOVE FROM DEE DEE. Bridgewater's career has always bridged musical genres. She earned her first professional experience as a member of the legendary Thad Jones/Mel Louis Big Band, and throughout the 70's she performed with such jazz notables as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Dizzy Gillespie. After a foray into the pop world during the 1980s, she relocated to Paris and began to turn her attention back to jazz. Signing with the Universal Music Group as a producer (Bridgewater produces all of her CDs), Bridgewater released a series of critically acclaimed titles beginning with Keeping Tradition in 1993. All but one, including her wildly successful double GRAMMY Award-winning tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Dear Ella - have received GRAMMY nominations. Bridgewater also pursued a parallel career in musical theater, winning a Tony Award for her role as "Glinda" in The Wiz in 1975. Her other theatrical credits include Sophisticated Ladies, Black Ballad, Carmen, Cabaret and the West End Production of Lady Day, for which Bridgewater received the British Laurence Olivier Nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. She is currently starring in the lead role as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at the Little Schubert Theater in New York City. There is a $20-$35 cover.

WASHINGTON, DC: CHRIS THOMAS KING AT BLUES ALLEY

King is initially known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop. King reached a whole new audience with his film debut in the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack, but establishing himself as a serious dramatic actor as well. Chris Thomas King has been a determined progressive, hoping to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach and adamantly refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation. King eventually modified that approach to a certain degree, attempting to create a more explicit link between blues tradition and the general musical present. Call for cover/minimum information.
