Join us for a 6pm concert, just one set, of swinging, creative jazz, played by a band of New York's top Jazz musicians! News about my New CD:
"For much of her career, vocalist Judy Niemack has split
her time between Europe and New York. Niemack’s
discography is impressive and her fresh approach to
familiar works and willingness to explore lesser known
songs helped her gain the attention of critics. This
project evolved from her working relationship with
arranger/conductor Jim McNeely, who wrote a series
of charts for her to perform with the WDR Big Band in
Germany in 1993 and 2001. Finally, the opportunity
arose for her to record McNeely’s scores with the
Danish Radio Big Band, McNeely conducting. The title
track is a big and brassy opener that suddenly
downshifts to a funky setting, Niemack adding a
spoken word segment on NYC post-9/11, before the
darkness fades as the city is reborn.
Several of the songs are by Thelonious Monk.
Niemack’s bop chops are on display in “Suddenly”,
Jon Hendricks’ masterful vocal version of “In Walked
Bud”, while McNeely creates an eerie backdrop with
his brilliant scoring of “Misterioso”, retitled “A Crazy
Song To Sing”, featuring Niemack’s descriptive lyric.
Niemack and McNeely take “‘Round Midnight” at
a subdued tempo, with the singer’s expressiveness
complemented by inventive voicings. Niemack’s sassy
rendition of “It’s Over Now” (originally “Well, You
Needn’t”) sells its witty lyric and her engaging scatting
along with the band makes it hard to top. Her earliest
lyric is heard in Clifford Brown’s bop gem “Daahoud”,
recast as “I Should Have Told You Goodbye”. While
Niemack’s powerful vocal gets the mess
