Steinway Jazz Cafe Events

“The Art of the Duo”

with Chris Collins & Cliff Monear, saxophone and piano

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 @ 7:00PM

General Admission: $20
Steinway Society Members: $15
Cash or check, payable at the door

One of the most challenging and exposed performance formats in jazz music is the “duo”. What is typically routine in a quartet setting, where drums and bass help make the “pulse” very clear to the jazz audience, the duo must create the illusion of pulse or “swing” through a melodic and rhythmic interaction between the two performers.

Chris and Cliff will present jazz selections using this highly skilled and intuitive approach and will offer a brief explanation of both the freedoms and the challenges of the duo format. We hope you can join us…

with Mark Randisi, vocalist

General Admission: $15

When Andrea Bocelli first heard Mark Randisi sing, he believed he was listening to a Frank Sinatra recording. That’s a common response, but Mark is modest: “I’m flattered when people say I sound like Sinatra. I developed a love for the music and I respect those who created it. However, I am being myself …” Close your eyes or turn your head. You’ll swear the voice you hear is the original Chairman of the Board. It’s really the voice of Mark Randisi, keeping the classic sound and style of Sinatra alive.  Mark’s entertaining personality, sense of humor and rich voice make him an ideal choice for events of all kinds. People who attend a Mark Randisi concert go away smiling, knowing “The best is yet to come.”

FREE ADMISSION – Please plan to arrive closer to 4:00 PM as there are services going on beforehand. 

Many of you know Pierre as a world-class Steinway artist. What you may not know is he is equally adept at the organ.

Pierre will thrill you with beautiful traditional organ sounds and hundreds of orchestral voices that are present in this instrument. Please call Steinway Piano Gallery at 248.560.9200 for additional questions.

Pierre Fracalanza, the son of a concert organist from Italy, began playing the piano and organ at three years old.

At age twelve he was playing at weddings, and by sixteen, he was the Organist and Choir Director at St. Stephen’s Church, Port Huron. Read more …
