April 19
NEW YORK
IRISH ARTS CENTER  – ‘Tobin’s Run on 51’
Fine and Mellow: Billie and Ella, Side by Side’
Both discovered in the early 1930’s, Holiday, nicknamed Lady Day,
and Fitzgerald, The Lady of Swing had distinct vocal styles but
their personal lives unfolded in very different ways. Holiday
was as famous for her music as she was for her tragic life, dying
prematurely at the age of 44. Fitzgerald famously beat a
disadvantaged childhood and troubled teenage years to become a
13-time Grammy Award-winner. Yet, “they complete each other
somehow, like the two faces of Janus” (The New York Times).
Christine Tobin,
a devotee of Billie Holiday, and charismatic jazz
vocalist Roseanna Vitro, a longtime fan of Ella Fitzgerald, will pay
tribute to these mothers of jazz by singing a special selection from
their repertoire. Vitro will be accompanied by pianist and musical
partner Mark Soskin along with other fine guest musicians, including
Peter Brendler on double bass and David Mason on drums. The
concert will include rare film footage. 553 West 51st Street N\YC

    Hello Christine – I love your voice and your music. And you should know that my daughter – who is now 18 – for the last many years always has put on either Keith Jarrets ” The Melody at Night With You” or “Romance and R” or The Secret Life of ..” when she was in the need for resting and finding peace – A real compliment for you : ) We look forward to listening to Yeats, you and the wonderful band. And hope you will come to Denmark very ! All the best from Ane Ramloese

  3. Judith allen Says:

    we have only just discovered Christine. WOW!! Have just returned from her concert at Terry OTtoole Theatre, North Hykeham. Her voice is breathtaking….didn’t think anyone could do justice to Leonard Cohen songs but I was wrong, very wrong.

  4. Barrie Spark Says:

    My wife and I saw the show at North Hykeham in November and thought it was wonderful. The new CD which I bought on the night is also first class. We were determined to see the show again so have just received our front row tickets for September at The Sage at Gateshead. Looking forward to seeing you again, best wishes from Barrie and Judith.
