“…That predicted time of greatness has arrived. Nicole Henry emerges hands down as this generation's First Lady of Jazz. She is the genuine article, the dream at last come true…” – Huffington Post

"A jazz singer of pop instinct and cabaret sophistication." – The New York Times

Since her debut in 2004, Nicole Henry has established herself as one of the jazz world’s most acclaimed vocalists and has captivated audiences in over 15 countries. Her soulful voice and genuine charisma earned her a 2013 Soul Train Award for “Best Traditional Jazz Performance,” three top-10 U.S. Billboard and HMV Japan jazz albums, and rave reviews both domestically and internationally from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Japan Times, El Pais, Essence, and more. Recent albums and performances have featured original arrangements of songs by artists including Percy Mayfield, Anthony Newly, Ramsey Lewis, George and Ira Gershwin, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Joni Mitchell, and more. Nicole Henry knows where the love is, and her shows at Dizzy’s Club always impress.

With "Where Love Is," Ms. Henry dives into her favorite parts of a song: the lyrics and the passion behind what is being expressed.  Some songs featured include gems written by Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Ned Washington, and Jimmy Van Heusen.  Also included will be selections from Henry’s upcoming CD that celebrates the musical legacy of the legendary Miss Nancy Wilson.

Jun-04-19 07:30 PM Kenny Werner Trio

With pianist Kenny Werner, bassist Johannes Weidenmueller, and drummer Ari Hoenig.

Kenny Werner is a world-class pianist and composer whose prolific output of compositions, recordings, and educational publications impact as many artists as they do audiences. Werner’s compositional style makes most pieces more of a meditative journey than a concise tune, and the group members excel at creating varied, extended solos around the twists and turns of each song. Werner’s book and method, Effortless Mastery, is considered a definitive teaching tool for improvisers to “liberate” their musicality and avoid falling back on familiar ideas, and this long-running trio puts these ideals into practice.

Jun-06-19 09:30 PM Hilary Gardner and Ehud Asherie

With vocalist Hilary Gardner and pianist Ehud Asherie.

For one set only, enjoy the elegant vocal and piano duet of Hilary Gardner and Ehud Asherie. Performing classic repertoire including songs written or made famous by Rodgers & Hart, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Nancy Wilson, Fats Waller, and more, Gardner and Asherie evoke a timeless sound well-suited for Dizzy’s Club and its gorgeous views of New York City. Come experience a refined but lively take on early jazz and the Great American Songbook.

Jun-07-19 07:30 PM Dion Parson & 21st Century Band

With drummer Dion Parson, saxophonist Ron Blake, trumpeter Melvin Jones, pianist Carlton Holmes, steelpannist Victor Provost, and sabar drummer/percussionist Alioune Faye.

Grammy Award-winning drummer and composer Dion Parson has now been leading the stellar 21st Century Band for 21 years. Together with saxophonist Ron Blake (of the legendary Saturday Night Live Band), Parson formed 21st Century Band in 1998 to showcase the music of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It has since developed an innovative sound that mixes Virgin Islands traditions, such as Quelbe, and Caribbean infusions, like reggae, calypso, soca, mento, ska, zouk, steel pan, chutney, and funk, with New Orleans and African overtones. This popular group sells out Dizzy’s Club every year, and we’re excited to welcome them back for three nights during Caribbean Heritage Month.
