Live at Vitello’s: Kevin Axt, Cheryl Bentyne and Wayne Johnson
Some great new reviews came in! The first is of a recent show at Vitello’s. Here’s an excerpt:
“Up Close & Personal” was the title Cheryl gave her performance. And it was right on target: Kevin Axt on bass, Wayne Johnson on guitar, and Cheryl in the center. No drums, no piano, no horns. None of which were needed in two sets of exquisite songs performed with intimate lyrical and musical clarity. One couldn’t have asked for more.

I also got some good ink on my latest record, “Let’s Misbehave – The Cole Porter Songbook.” In his review in The International Review of Music, Brian Arsenault wrote:
With that cultured, shining voice that sparkles like late summer sun setting on a rippling sea, she brings us all the varied and rich life of those songs. Life — romance, passion, love, misbehavin’ — is at the core of Porter. And Bentyne as well.

That’s it for now. Back to work!

Hey, Gang… My show on New Year’s Eve with the The Elliot Deutsch Big Band had to be postponed (but I’ve been told that New Year’s Eve will still be on December 31st). Speaking of the calendar… Heads-up for a gig on September 18, 2012 at The Rrazz Room in San Francisco.
I am temporarily off the road to deal with a surprise illness… please support Margaret Dorn, who is filling in with The Manhattan Transfer. She is doing the impossible, learning all our shows and doing a great job with my partners. Love to you all, and thank you for all the wishes of love and recovery… I shall return!!!
New show on December 30th at Old Town Temecula Community Theater in Temecula, CA with the Elliot Deutsch Big Band! Visit the Upcoming Shows page for details and tickets.
