"Balance lies at the heart of the most effective jazz-leaning cabaret acts. Insuring the right amount of overt charm, reverence for the past, instrumental bravura, and in-the-moment connection with an audience is an art carefully perfected with experience. The pianist and singer Comstock has the goods, and, in tandem with the superb bassist Smith, he will offer expert musicianship and joie de vivre in equal measure."
~ Steve Futterman
"Knowing all the songs he does, Comstock changes his material everytime he sits down anew at a club. What doesn't alter is his tongue-in-cheek charm as he plays, sings and/or speaks ... Be there or be very 21st-century square." ~ David Finkle
SATURDAY SUPPER @ 5:30PM
ERIC COMSTOCK & SEAN SMITH
BIRDLAND JAZZ CLUB
315 WEST 44th STREET, NYC
Hailed as "a dispenser of cabaret caviar" by Stephen Holden in
The New York Times,
pianist/singer ERIC COMSTOCK returns to Birdland with songs by everyone from George Gershwin to George Harrison. Bassist/composer Sean Smith cut his teeth playing with Gerry Mulligan, Peggy Lee and Rosemary Clooney. Sean's newest CD, TRUST, is a collection of his compositions & has received rave reviews. "Poise is such an apt word in describing Sean Smith. He has an unlimited future straight as the crow flies" (
). Joining them is vocalist Barbara Fasano, praised by
The New York Times
as "a lyrically sensitive intepreter with a special affinity for Joni Mitchell" and by
The New York Post
as "a gorgeous, soulful singer who has an actor's intensity in whatever she sings." Her most recent CD BUSY BEING FREE won the MAC Award for Major Recording of the Year.
“Suave, smart, funny and utterly delightful ...
A connoisseur's connoisseur of pop-music esoterica,
Mr. Comstock is the truest heir to the much-missed Bobby Short.”
~ Stephen Holden
