||The Washington Post praises Karla Chisholm’s debut CD: “Chisholm's songs - which carve out a niche for themselves somewhere in that ambiguous territory between R&B, jazz and folk - will wriggle their way into your head and stay there for the foreseeable future.” She’s joined by Eli Staples, piano; Jeff Reed, bass; and Sean Rickman, drums.
||Micah Smith is an astonishing singer, songwriter, composer and musician who has shared the stage with world-renowned artists from Roberta Flack to Wynton Marsalis. He’ll appear with Chris Grasso, piano; Zack Pride, bass; and Mark Prince, drums.
