HOLIDAY JAZZ SHOW
Judy Roberts & Greg Fishman
Jazz In AZ Party
110 East Roosevelt Street
(FROM JAZZ in AZ):
Nothing says Christmas quite like Judy Roberts! The Nash is proud to present Judy and Greg in their uniquely uplifting holiday show at the JiA Monthly Party on Sunday, December 21st at 3 p.m. The show will feature many songs from Judys Santa Baby CD (recorded with Jackie Allen), which The Chicago Tribune described as The most endearing holiday album. The program will include Santa Baby, Let it Snow, Winter Wonderland, Mel Tormes Christmas Song, Vince Guaraldis Christmastime Is Here, and, of course, the paradoxical medley of Hannukah, Oh Hannukah and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
The Chicago Tribune awarded pianist/singer Judy Roberts the title Chicagos Favorite Jazz Woman. Yet she is also recognized as a worldwide jazz star thanks to the success of her international recordings and concert performances. From the Midwest to her new hometown Phoenix to Singapore, Judy is best known for her fun-loving approach to an eclectic and extensive repertoire, her hard-swinging piano playing, her ability to combine lush and sensitive vocals with rapid-fire scat singing, and for her unique ability to communicate with her audience in a relaxed and intimate style. A multiple Grammy nominee, Judys twenty-plus album/CD releases include the The Other World, whose hit single Señor Blues was number one on the jazz charts and in radio airplay; the album Trio, with Ray Brown and Jeff Hamilton; the song Twilight World, co-written with piano diva Marian McPartland (on whose NPR show Piano Jazz Judy has guested twice); and her international hit rendition of Dave Frishbergs My Attorney Bernie.

Fishman has performed with The Woody Herman Big Band, The Louie Bellson Big Band, Slide Hampton, Jackie Cain & Roy Krall, Lou Levy, Marian McPartland, Conte Candoli, Ira Sullivan, Clark Terry, Ralph Burns, and Don Menza. He has been playing and recording with Judy Roberts since 1995 from Chicago to Singapore, as well as with guitarist/vocalist Paulinho Garcia in Two For Brazil, and top jazz musicians in the Chicago area. Fishman has his Masters in Jazz Music Pedagogy from Northwestern University. He is the author of numerous highly respected jazz books that are among the most popular with students and educators worldwide. His latest book, "The Lobster Theory and Other Analogies for Jazz Improvisation" is a groundbreaking bestseller. Fishman teaches students worldwide via Skype. He is also a leading authority on his mentor, Stan Getz, whom he will be celebrating in concert at Kerr this coming March for the fourth consecutive year. Read about Greg at www.gregfishman.com.
