TUESDAY’S TONE — 4 WEEKS FROM TODAY

image

Good day all!

Four weeks from today I will be in the wonderful world of islandology known as Japan. It is with childlike delight that I look forward to my 2nd trip there this year! I have found a home away from home; a place that truly resonates with me on many levels including the spiritual. Japan, specifically the places I visited and performed in, Osaka, Kyoto, Ohara, and Tokyo touched me profoundly. The people that I met and performed for gave me much more than I gave to them. It is truly a gift to return to this place.

The newly designed poster by my friend Kouichi Sugioka, announces the first stop on my tour: LIVE SPOT RAG KYOTO. This marks the first of many DUO performances for guitarist Kazunori Koga and I. We hope to see you there on the 10th of October, Thursday evening in the lovely historic city of Kyoto, the land of 300 temples. How uniquely beautiful it is!

Stay well and stay tuned for my 20th album release of “SKY” coming September 24th, both digitally and on CD!! Go to my page on FaceBook http://facebook.com/jeannenewhallmusic to get your free sneakpeek download from “SKY” on Sunday….all my best,

Jeanne

PRESS RELEASE CATALINA BAR & GRILL SHOW

For Immediate Release

CONTEMPORARY JAZZ PIANIST AND
VOCALIST JEANNE NEWHALL MAKES HER
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED RETURN TO CATALINA
BAR & GRILL IN HOLLYWOOD MAY 23 WITH
A MULTI-CULTURAL BAND FEATURING
ABRAHAM LABORIEL, KAZUNORI KOGA AND
WALTER RODRIGUEZ

Equally acclaimed as a contemporary jazz composer, vocalist and pianist throughout her two decade plus recording and performing career, Jeanne Newhall (www.jeannenewhall.com) makes her triumphant, highly anticipated return to the stage at Catalina Bar & Grill Thursday, May 23 at 8 p.m.
The show marks her first at the renowned Hollywood jazz club in nearly five years.
The charismatic, multi-talented artist will be joined by a powerhouse multi-cultural quartet featuring legendary bassist Abraham Laboriel (whom Guitar Player magazine has called “the most widely used session bassist of our time,” with over 4,000 credits), drummer Walter Rodriguez (a protégé of percussion great Alex Acuna who has toured with numerous artists, including Yanni) and guitarist Kazunori Koga, who first played with Newhall last fall when she performed several shows in Japan.
The weekend following her set at Catalina, Newhall and her band will head to the studio to start work on the vocalist/pianist’s next project, a jazz/blues/folk/soul influenced recording that will, like many of her previous projects, be released on her independent label Marzipan Records.
They will be performing more recently recorded vocal songs from Newhall’s albums Glide (Deluxe Edition) and Wild Blue (2006), in addition to popular cuts from some of her 1990s albums when her focus was on instrumental contemporary jazz.
After taking some time off from her whirlwind recording and performing schedule upon the passing of her brother in 2008, Newhall—who last performed at Catalina in 2008—has emerged with some of her most dynamic and successful projects ever.
A year after releasing Glide, her comeback album, in 2010, she put out the Deluxe Edition of the collection that included a cover of The Wallflowers’ “6th Avenue Heartache,” which was featured on the ABC mystery-drama series “Happy Town.”
A devoted practitioner of Ashtanga Royal Yoga for more than 10 years, Newhall recorded and released her first yoga-centric album Blossom of Transformation in 2011; she dedicated the healing-based recording to her late brother. Last year, she added a second career spanning compliation, Spacious, Peaceful and Quiet, to her extensive discography.
“Since I began performing again late in 2012, I feel like I have shed an emotional and spiritual skin and am enjoying a sense of healing, rebirth and transformation,” says the Phoenix born and raised, Los Angeles based artist. “There comes a point with every musician where you feel a unique call to share your gift and emotions with both the people who have helped support your career and others who are new to the experience.
“All of this is like emerging from a cocoon and rising on what I can only describe as ‘butterfly wings,’” she adds. “I feel a burden lifted and am now flowing with a newfound sense of melodic and rhythmic freedom. I’m really excited to be performing at Catalina’s again with these great musicians I have had the pleasure of working with in the past.” ….Jonathan Widran
