Elli Fordyce, Jazz Tuber Trio concert May 4, 2012 in Pittsfield, MA

 

 

As part of our year-round commitment to ‘live’ jazz, we are planning a special event on May 4. This exciting double bill will feature NY-based vocalist (http://www.ellifordyce.net), plus the Boston-based Jazz Tuber Trio. It will take place in the intimate setting of the backroom at Baba Louie’s, where we presented Armen Donelian in October, 2011, in one of our most memorable concerts ever.

Originally from Manhattan, Elli Fordyce is a highly accomplished vocalist and actor. She has performed all over the New York Metro area and throughout North America, including appearances in the New York Cabaret Convention and in festivals. She will be backed by a trio headed by pianist Andy Jaffe.

Headed by Eli Newberger, who was a founder of the New Black Eagle Jazz Band. The Jazz Tuber Trio comprises leader Newberger on tuba (and occasionally keyboards); vocalist/banjoist Jimmy Mazzy, and reedman Ted Casher (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc809ojZp-k&feature=player_embedded).

The performance will start at 8pm, in Baba Louie’s Backroom, home of the best pizza in Berkshire County, 34 Depot St., Pittsfield, Mass. You can pay the $20 admission in advance here:

Elli, fresh from the announcement that her 2nd CD, Songs Spun of Gold made the Grammy pre-nomination lists in 6 categories, is ready to go and looking forward to seeing many of you!


The evening was swapped for 1/28/10 and we had a packed house. A terrific article had come out in  LoHud.com a few days before and Ronny had a bunch of folks call and come by that night, along with a huge party of BMW bike riders. The first set was pretty noise with our bike folks, but the second set had calmed down and Joe Tranchina (piano), Ratzo Harris (bass), Jim Malloy and Nicole Pasternak sitting in with vocals, and I, all had a great time musically. We'll be back for my day-after-birthday bash on 4/1 (yup, the big 7 3). See you then.

Elli Fordyce Trio - 6:30-9:00PM

92 Main Street
Yonkers NY 10701
USA (914) 709-1050
Price: No Cover/No Minimum

This is our first gig at The Pizza Place, a block from the apartment I moved to last July from the city. Every Thursday evening, The Pizza Place becomes a musicians'/jazz-lovers' hang where owner Ronnie Masciandaro (himself a Berklee-trained jazz pianist) has created his wonderful shop to, serve the freshest homemade food (WAY more than pizza) around a Spinet Piano, which is displayed prominently in the window. Ronnie loves to give musicians another venue in which to play, folks more to do in Yonkrs' Downtown Waterfront District and, of course, bring new customers in for the tasty jazz and jazzy food. We (Elli Fordyce, vocals, Joe Tranchina, keyboard/piano and Eric Lemon, bass) hope to see you and to return to The Pizza Place often to play as well as for Ronnie's food (check out the salads and soups, Elli's favorites). NOTE: The Pizza Place is CASH ONLY (with bank ATMs next door and across-the-street) and BYOB (if you do so, there will be a $5 corking charge). The Metro North Station is also across-the-street and Yorkers is 1/2 hour from Grand Central, a good part of which is along the scenic Hudson with a great view of the Palisades. So you don't have to be from around Yonkers nor drive to join us on the 21st. Psst, please tell friends.

Ronnie Masciandaro (himself a Berklee-trained jazz pianist) enjoyed the music so much that when I came back after the gig to pick up my stuff and said I was glad he liked it, he yelled across the empty store, "No, I LOVED it!" and kept raving about all the ways he was pleased. Great to hear after we'd discussed my doing something there for 10 months. He even threw in a little from his pocket to pay his max allotment for Thursday jazz and rebooked us for Thursday, June 18th. During the evening, Joe's wife, singer Gabrielle Tranchina, sat in, doing a lovely Brazilian bossa nova in Portugese and when I had to leave 10 minutes early for an interview, rather than the guys playing out the set, she pinch-hit for me on vocals. A lucky "accident."

Price: $15 cover

2 sets of jazz vocals by NY's Elli Fordyce with Ed Ridley, Jr. on piano, Marty Block on bass and Roy King on drums.

The band was great, I had a wonderful time and my son, Tim Collins, long-time resident of Cleveland Heights and busy Cleveland attorney, rallied the troops and we had a terrific evening with an engaged and attentive audience and a happy promotor, Jim Wadsworth. We all hope to play Nighttown again together.
