Original show description below.

A proud Bay Area native who happens to be on the short list of the greatest lyrical interpreters in jazz, Laurie Antonioli will be premiering material from her latest project featuring provocative arrangements of music from Nguyen Le, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Joe Henderson, and Branislav Kaper, as well as original songs from her unique repertoire.

As a young singer, studies with the great Nancy King in the prestigious jazz vocal program at Mt. Hood Community College in Portland stoked a fire for improvisation, and regular appearances with iconic singer Mark Murphy at his weekly gigs in Tiburon thrust Antonioli into the scene as a working professional. Since her first tour of Europe with saxophonist Pony Poindexter, she has established herself as a consummate interpreter of standards and American popular song, working with Bobby McFerrin, pianists George Cables and Richie Beirach as well as an extended relationship with tenor sax legend Joe Henderson, with whom she performed for two decades until his death in 2001. An experienced educator as well as performer, Antonioli is Vocal Chair at the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley.

Special Announcement: ECM recording artist and Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist, Theo Bleckmann, will be joining Laurie and her band for both shows. Bleckmann will add his beautiful vocal soundscapes to Antonioli's eclectic repertoire improvising and weaving harmony to the group's contemporary arrangements. They will premiere music from Laurie's latest project that includes songs from Sheryl Crow, Nguyen Le, Russell Ferrante and Neil Young.

Vocalist Theo Bleckmann is one of the most flexible and uncategorizable figures on the New York scene; since the mid-90s he's been doing his thing in a niche of his own invention, somewhere between jazz, cabaret, classical, experimental, and improvised music.
