“A Tribute to Irv Tobocman”

with vocalist Susan Tobocman & pianist Cliff Monear

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 @ 7:00 PM

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

Singer/composer/lyricist/producer/arranger Susan Tobocman has been making a name for herself among audiences and musicians alike on the New York jazz scene for a number of years. Whether leading her own gigs at Zinc Bar (where she was the original artist-in-residence), Metropolitan Room, Flatiron Room, Symphony Space, Highline Ballroom, Smalls, The Bitter End, Birdland, Cliff Bell’s, Steinway Piano Gallery, Smoke, or Cleopatra’s Needle (among countless others) — or as the guest of such luminaries as Barry Harris, Al Foster, or the late Doc Cheatham — Susan is equally comfortable working as a leader or sideman. Susan’s extensive repertoire of standards — from the familiar to the obscure — is distinctly enhanced by her inventive arrangements, in addition to her original compositions. Susan’s purpose in writing is “to communicate through the universal language of music, to expand and go deeper, and to lean into the unknown” (Susan Tobocman).

“Sets include a wonderful mix of standards, as well as Susan’s own sophisticated compositions. Any audience is sure to leave wanting more.” – Detroit Free Press

“Susan sings with a warm, smooth delivery, and a genuine feeling for the music. Really soulful…very swingin’.” – Mark Murphy, vocalist
