|Happy New Year 2011|
|1/23/2018 8:00:11 AM - Happy new year (well, we did JUST get through the Chinese new years!)! I hope 2011 is starting off well for everyone.|
year was a busy year for me with a lot of lives including a memorable
one with my mother's big band which she revived for a tour through China
last October, as well as several guest appearances on other artists'
projects. Last June also saw a new release of mine, "Alter Ego" which
features remixed works from my "Nexus" project, largely from the Spanish
producer Soulfeenix' XtraSolar collective.
This year, I am
happy to report that there will be a new release entitled "Don't Disturb
This Groove" coming out in May in Japan from my friend Yasushi Ide's
label Grand Gallery featuring reworked covers. I will soon post it in
my discography/music section with a list of the songs covered.
for performances, the first one of the year is coming up soon --
February 26! For all of you in the New York area, I encourage you to
come out to my end of the State, in the North Fork of Long Island where
every year the wineries host the Long Island WinterFest Jazz Festival. I
will be performing at the same winery as last year, Laurel Lake
Vineyards, at 3:00 p.m. Great band as well, with Dave Gilmore (guitar),
Boris Kozlov (bass), Nate Smith (drums), and I'm sure we can convince
my husband, Alex Sipiagin, to come sit in with promise of a local oyster
feast at the end. Cover charge is a mere $10 which includes a glass of
the Winery's wine.
Other performances are coming up, including
a tour to Japan in June -- the dates that are fixed so far are June 15
at Osaka Billboard, June 16 at Nagoya Blue Note, and June 18 at Tokyo
Billboard. More dates TBA.
More announcements to come soon so please check back -- I promise to be better this year about updating my website :-)
