SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: The Judy Roberts-Greg Fishman Duo
February 24 @ 7:30 PM
The Chicago Tribune awarded pianist/singer Judy Roberts the title “Chicago’s Favorite Jazz Woman;” but she is recognized as a worldwide jazz star thanks to the success of her international recordings and concert performances. Judy is best known for her fun-loving approach to an eclectic and extensive repertoire, her hard-swinging piano playing, her ability to combine lush and sensitive vocals with rapid-fire scat singing, and for her unique ability to communicate with her audience in a relaxed and intimate style. A multiple Grammy nominee, Judy’s twenty-plus recordings include the “The Other World,” whose hit single Señor Blues was number one on the jazz charts and in radio airplay; the album “Trio,” with Ray Brown and Jeff Hamilton; the song Twilight World, co-written with piano diva Marian McPartland (on whose NPR show “Piano Jazz” Judy has guested twice); and her international hit rendition of Dave Frishberg’s My Attorney Bernie.
