Pianist Richie Beirach and flautist Jamie Baum are performing at the Kitano. This performance will be great for (a) those who like intimate, solo and duet performances with piano and (b) work in, or able to get into, Manhattan. The concert begins at 8:00 and we can meet at 7:30pm for those wanting to eat together.
Richie Beirach is considered one of the top 5 premier solo jazz pianists (similar to Fred Hersch whom we've seen). He rarely plays outside Europe, except this week. Jamie Baum is Downbeat's #1 rising flautist, with a "best of 2013" CD. We heard her with septet earlier. The Kitano is one of the top locations for jazz in the city; at Park & 38th. You don't buy tickets in advance but do make reservations. ~ a week before the event I'll hold a table for the # interested in attending. I realize this is an NYC, not a suburb gig, but I'll definitely be there and welcome company! Cover $30 + $15 minimum food/beverage.
