NYC: BLUE NOTE SUNDAY BRUNCH: MARLENE VERPLANCK TRIO

The Marlene Verplanck Trio featuring Tedd Firth - Piano, Jay Leonhart - Bass and Ron Vincent - Drums, will perform at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Sunday, February 1st with shows at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm as part of the clubs Sunday Jazz Brunch series. Throughout her career, Marlene VerPlanck has stuck to her guns, paying loving care to the great standards and new songs from our finest composers, while ignoring mediocre pop tunes. Millions of people first heard Marlene's crystal-clear voice anonymously, on radio and television, when she espoused the merits of dozens of commercial products, among them: "Mm-mm good, mm-mm good, that's what Campbell's Soups are..." But, actually, she got her start in the big-band business, as a very young vocalist with Charlie Spivak and Tex Beneke. During a brief stint with the last Dorsey Brothers Orchestra, she met her future husband, musician-arranger Billy VerPlanck. In time, Marlene became one of the nation's busiest studio singers, backing up vocalists ranging from Frank Sinatra and MelTorme to Kiss. Following appearances on Alec Wilder's historic National Public Radio series, "American Popular Songs," in the 1970s, Marlene emerged as a leading solo performer. Appearances at Carnegie Hall, Michael's Pub and the Rainbow Room brought rave notices, and national TV shows, including "Entertainment Tonight," "The Today Show" and CBS's "Sunday Morning," featured profiles of the increasingly popular singer. Today, Marlene performs across North America and much of Western Europe, while a growing roster of solo CDs continues to win critical acclaim. The albums feature exciting arrangements scored by her husband, Billy VerPlanck, with accompaniment by many of America's finest musicians. There is a $29.50 cover. **Price includes brunch, music and a drink.**

NYC: THE BLUE NOTE PRESENTS CHRISTIAN SCOTT

Edison Award winning trumpeter/ composer/ producer/ bandleader Christian Scott performs at THE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592) on Thursday through Sunday, January 29th through February 1st with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. Scott stands tall among a handful of talented young jazz artists who are expanding their artistic vision beyond the strict confines of the genre's tradition. Throughout his career, Scott has been an intrepid explorer, from his Grammy nominated debut Rewind That to his genre stretching last album Yesterday You Said Tomorrow. Scott ups the ante on his compelling new double album, Christian aTunde Adjuah, an inspired and provocative two-CD, 23-track collection that spans a range of beyond-jazz influences as he continues to make strides into uncharted jazz territory. Scott's band consists of guitarist Matthew Stevens, drummer Jamire Williams, bassist Kristopher Keith Funn and pianist Lawrence Fields, with guests including tenor saxophonist Kenneth Whalum III, alto saxophonist Louis Fouche IIII and trombonist Corey King.

NYC: PHAROAH SANDERS AT DIZZY'S

Sanders first rose to fame in the 1960s after joining the Sun Ra Arkestra and John Coltrane's later ensembles. An essential (and essentially divisive) component of free jazz's early days, Sanders was first recognized for his notoriously aggressive and huge tenor sound. Without losing any of his raw power - or his ability to quite literally make his instrument scream - Sanders quickly began to further expand upon and refine his craft into a more patient, melodic, and spiritually peaceful sound, working a unique beauty into the psychedelic spaciousness of Sun Ra, alongside the improvisational chops and compositional courage of contemporaries like John and Alice Coltrane. Virtuosic, harsh, and one-of-a-kind, Sanders still has the rare qualities that propelled his career for half a century, plus more tricks up his sleeve than ever. There is a $45 cover.
