On Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 we had the good fortune to sit in at the Jack Kleinsinger managed Early Jazz concert  – part of his Highlights In Jazz,
New York’s Longest Running Jazz Concert Series.

The program included:

Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks

Ms. Vinnie Knight

Jonathan Batiste and his New Orleans Stay Human Band.

This was an outstanding program and the big Nighthawks  band is giving some Mid-Manhattan encores at At Sofia’s Restaurant, 221 W. 46th Street (between Broadway & 8th Ave).

Jack Kleisinger’s events continue later with a 40 years  anniversary gala on February 14, 2013.

We learned about these further events coming up for Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks Orchestra in January and February – two evenings in particular: a Vaudeville night with “Three For A Song” on Jan 14, 2013  and Mardi Gras NY on Feb 12, 2013.

“THREE FOR A SONG” Join Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks, Monday, January 14, 2012

On the evening of Monday, January 14, 2012, Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks will be present a very special second set.  Starting at 9 p.m., they will share the bandstand with the Washington, D.C.-based musical trio“Three For A Song”.

Comprised of pianist Alex Hassan, tenor Doug Bowles and soprano Karin Paludan, “Three For A Song” will present “The Greatest Songs You’ve Never Heard” — a revue of quite unknown melodies of 1930s Hollywood and Broadway, including some songs that were written for films that never actually got filmed.  Michael Feinstein calls the revue “One of the freshest and most stimulating shows for lovers of vintage popular music performed by an outstandingly talented trio.”

“The Greatest Songs You’ve Never Heard” has received standing ovations at venues such as the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage Jazz Club, the Coolidge Auditorium at the Library of Congress, the Jonathan Club of Los Angeles, and The Arts Club of Washington, among others.

At Sofia’s Restaurant, 221 W. 46th Street (between Broadway & 8th Ave), 3 Sets: 8:00pm to 11:00pm (Doors open at 7:00pm; Three For A Song’s set starts at 9:00 pm)?$15 cash cover charge at the door covers all three sets + $15 food/drink minimum. For reservations: 212.719.5799

Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks Celebrate the Birthday of Walter Donaldson

From “My Blue Heaven” to “My Baby Just Cares for Me”, Walter Donaldson wrote many of the most well-known jazz standards in the American songbook, and yet today, his name isn’t known like Irving Berlin’s or Cole Porter’s.
