SAN FRANCISCO, CA: RENOWNED JAZZ VOCALIST, PAULA WEST, RETURNS TO FEINSTEIN'S AT THE NIKKO FOR FOUR-WEEK ENGAGEMENT

After a sold-out engagement last February, renowned San Francisco Bay Area jazz vocalist, Paula West, returns to FEINSTEIN'S AT THE NIKKO (222 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA - 866-663-1063) for a four-week engagement starting Thursday, February 11th and running every Thursday through Sunday, through Sunday, March 6th. Known for her rich, powerful contralto voice, West will present an all-new show featuring an eclectic range of songs by Bob Dylan, Glen Campbell, Pearl Bailey, Ethel Waters, and more! Accompanied by her four-piece band, West will take San Francisco audiences on a musical journey through the ages. Born into a Marine Corps family in San Diego, California, Paula West was initially exposed to classical music. It wasn't until college that West began listening to jazz singers such as Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn. After college, West moved to San Francisco, unsure of what she wanted to do with her life. Buying old records from thrift shops, she studied them and then began singing classes. As she became more secure in her talent, she ventured into jam sessions, places where an open mike gave her a chance to perform before an audience. It was at one of these sessions that she met a pianist who would join her in the climb to her own musical identity and her musical success. His name was Ken Muir, and he continues as her accompanist today. West went on to study with Faith Winthrop, developing her unique tone and delivery. She learned how to sustain a note without a vibrato, which is now almost a Paula West trademark. West's critically acclaimed debut CD, "Temptation," was released in 1997, and included classic songs she grew up with, including "You'll See" by Carroll Coates and "Peel Me A Grape" by Dave Frishberg. It was followed by "Restless" (1999) and "Come What May" (2001). West's most recent release is "Live at Jazz Standard" (2012).West has honed her talent, finding audiences from coast to coast and internationally. The recipient of three New York Nightlife Awards for 'Outstanding Female Jazz Vocalist,' West has shared the bill with such luminaries as Rosemary Clooney, Jimmy Scott, Oscar Brown Jr., Freddy Cole, Mose Allison, Mavis Staples, and Dave Frishberg. West has been the featured vocalist with The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, performed at The White House and had a sold-out debut at the Maison de la Musique in Paris. Paula West's band includes Adam Shulman on piano, John Wiitala on bass, Ed Cherry on guitar, and Jerome Jennings on drums. Showtimes vary day to day - see http://www.ticketweb.com - there is a $40-$60 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

NEW VINTAGE JAZZ SINGER LAURA AINSWORTH SIGNED BY GRAMMY-WINNING PRODUCER FOR NATIONAL LABEL DEBUT

Dallas-based retro jazz singerLaura Ainsworthis back in the studio, cutting a sultry 1940s torch song for her third album,New Vintage.Like her first two releases on her indie label Eclectus Records, Keep It To Yourself and Necessary Evil, it reteams her with renowned pianist/ producerBrian Piperand an array of topTexasjazz players.But album #3 marks a turning point for the redheaded chanteuse, whose sequined gowns and long silk gloves are as much a trademark as her silky, three-octave voice that's earned comparisons to such mid-century songbirds as Rosemary Clooney andDinah Shore. After the Dallas sessions are complete, Ainsworth and Piper will fly toNew York, where Grammy-winning producerJack Kreisbergwill add finishing touches forNew Vintageto becomeLaura Ainsworth'snational debut on his American Showplace Music label.Jazz icon Kreisberg managed the famed Blue Note Jazz Club, producing a series of acclaimed live albums, and launched the Half Note jazz label. He pegged Ms Ainsworth as a talent worth signing after New York Blues Hall of Fame guitaristMichael Packer raved to him aboutNecessary Evil.Prior to releasingNew Vintagethis summer, Kreisberg will also rereleaseNecessary Evilnationally.

Ms Ainsworth has been building a worldwide following by reimaging standards and reviving long-forgotten obscurities in a style she calls "new vintage," a term that's since become its own genre with her as a leading figure.She mixes her own modern touches with classic big band, Vegas lounge and cocktail jazz of the 1930s-'50s, styles she grew up loving as the daughter of the late sax and clarinet master,Billy Ainsworth. She released her indie debut,Keep It To Yourself,in 2011 with little fanfare, but word slowly spread among DJs and critics. The film noir-inspired follow-up,Necessary Evil,attracted even better reviews and influential music industry fans. Ms Ainsworth started 2015 touringIndiaandDubaias part of the WOA International Music Festival and ended inCharlotte, nominated for Best Female Vocalist and Best Mainstream Artist at the nationally-televised Artist Music Guild Awards, sharing the stage withMelba Moore,Martha Reevesand other stars.In between, she hitNew Yorkto perform on TV, sing at Birdland and tour Kreisberg's studio, home to both jazz artists and rock legends such asEric ClaptonandKeith Richards. Now, 2016 is shaping up as a breakout year.While finishingNew Vintage, she's preparing for a Grammy week trip to L.A. to perform alongside several of this year's nominees atThe Soiree, a major industry eventFebruary 13that the Whiskey A-Go-Go.She released a video of "Necessary Evil" shot inIndia, and Grammy-winning producer Ricky Kej is creating a techno-dance remix of the big band tune.She will also appear on the hot cult CD series,This Is Vintage Now.

NYC: GAY MARRIAGE MUSICAL "THE ENGAYGEMENT" RETURNS

"The Engaygement," a new chamber musical by David Auxier-Loyola, returns to THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) monthly (except March) starting Wednesday, February 10th at 7:00 pm. Additional performances are set for Thursday, April 21st; Tuesday, May 24th; and Wednesday, June 22nd - all shows at 7:00 pm. The witty and romantic gay-marriage cabaret show has been testing the waters at the Metropolitan Room since last year in a series of sold-out previews. With music, lyrics and book by Auxier-Loyola, "The Engaygement" is directed by Duncan Pflaster, with arrangements by music director Mark York on piano. The show is a penetrating exploration of a relationship melding two busy New Yorkers into a partnership, works on many levels - social, personal, sexual, not to mention wedding planning. Though it purports to NOT be a story about the battle for marriage equality (which Pflaster slyly points out would make it "a period piece") the socially aware story does glory in the novelty of gay marriage as a new strand in the social fabric. Joining the Bistro Award-winning Auxier in the cast of six are Seph Stanek, Chris-Ian Sanchez, Elliott Mattox, Jason Whitfield and Colleen Harris. The show's creators hope for transition to an Off-Broadway stage and an Off-Broadway premiere. A principal performer, choreographer and co-director of the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players, Auxier-Loyola is the creator of the 2009 Bistro Award-winning Gilbert & Sullivan revue "I've Got a Little Twist," which continues to tour the country. He also received a 2007 MAC Award nomination for special musical material. York is the executive producer of The Ziegfeld Society and music coordinator for Jerry Herman. Pflaster is a playwright, director, composer and actor. There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

NYC: JEFF MACAULEY MWAH! THE DINAH SHORE SHOW

Cabaret Life Productions presents cabaret veteran Jeff Macauley at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) on Saturday, February 13th at 7:00 pm. Macauley, who over the past few years has scored with two highly praised shows paying tribute to songwriter Norman Gimbel and composer Henry Mancini, is bringing back his 1998 Backstage Bistro Award Winner for "Outstanding Theme Show" - MWAH! THE DINAH SHORE SHOW - during the month of the legendary singer and TV show host's 100th birthday. Daryl Kojak will be on piano. Macauley's Dinah Shore tribute debuted in 1997 at EightyEights in New York's Greenwich Village and had a long run before moving to Los Angeles' Cinegrill at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. "MWAH!" is an affectionate and humorous look at the life and career of Dinah Shore as seen through the eyes of one of her most ardent fans, someone who sat transfixed in front of his TV during the 1970s watching the "Dinah!" show almost daily. Macauley presents many of Dinah's 92 pop chart hits, ranging from million selling songs to lesser-known standards. One of cabaret's best raconteurs, Macauley offers entertaining and informative tidbits about Dinah's professional and personal life in this fun, slightly skewed, but always warm look at the life and career of one of this country's less examined pop icons. There is a $25 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

SWEET LIFE - A NEW CD BY JIM SPEAKE

This recording had a long gestation, starting when Jim was born in Florence Alabama in1945. This was very close to the place where musical magic was to be made, the famous recording studios in Muscle Shoals. By coincidence, Percy Sledge was born in the same little town where his family and Jim lived, Leighton, Alabama. He had a major hit with his first recording in 1966, and the "Muscle Shoals Sound" was firmly established. Jim Speake had music in his life from an early age, because he sang along with his mother when she played the piano and sang. A track of his first recording session at four, can be found on Jim's first CD, "Jim Speake Sings My Generation." It was expected that he would go into the family business of farming. Instead, when Speake went to college, he earned degrees in Business Administration, University of Alabama and ultimately Landscape Architecture, University of Georgia. If he had followed my heart, he would have studied music. That was a road Jim did not take seriously until he moved to New York City in 2000. There, while studying acting and voice, Jim was lucky enough to meet some key people who have been vital to his development as a singer. At H.B. Studio, he met KT Sullivan. KT introduced Jim to Eric Michael Gillett. Eric Michael introduced him to Patrick DeGennaro. Patrick introduced him to Lennie Watts and Steven Ray Watkins. 2015 marked the tenth anniversary of his collaboration with these two talented men. Most of the arrangements on this recording were developed working with this same team. It is not a stretch to say thatSpeake would not have made this recording had he not met Lennie and Steven. He especially appreciates Lennie's support through this journey and also introducing him to Paul Rolnick.

NEW BOOK BY DAVID FRIEDMAN RELEASED - NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

David Friedman, author of "The Thought Exchange", has announced the release of his latest bool "The Healing Power of Negative Thoughts and Uncomfortable Sensations" now available on Amazon.com. In his revelatory new book, David Friedman, author of the best selling book THE THOUGHT EXCHANGE - OVERCOMING OUR RESISTANCE TO LIVING A SENSATIONAL LIFE, looks directly at our "NEGATIVE" thoughts and "UNCOMFORTABLE" sensations and reveals them not as things to be feared or ignored, but rather as messages from our past, tools we can use to heal any long-avoided traumas that may arise when we try to "think positive." How many times in the course of our New Thought studies have we heard phrases such as "Think POSITIVE", "CANCEL those NEGATIVE thoughts" and "Don't think NEGATIVE thoughts or NEGATIVE things will happen!" And how many times, as students and seekers of health and happiness, have we found ourselves unable to stay with that "Think Positive" philosophy and ended up thinking, "There's something wrong with me, I'm just not doing it right." Could it be that by trying to get rid of our "NEGATIVE" thoughts and "UNCOMFORTABLE" sensations, we are, in fact, suppressing, ignoring and avoiding one of the greatest tools we have for healing and living a full life?

Please remember, if you have a cabaret event coming up, to send in your press release to me at stuhamstra@svhamstra.com - do not assume the venue will do it for you. Some venues send it items just a few days before show date, and skip some shows completely. And please do not rely on an announcement on FaceBook to be received by all on your "friends" list. Send your release by e-mail, directly. If your release is complete & appropriate and received at least a week before your event, and it will be published on the website. Releases fron advertisers and members are posted first. To see the type of press release information I am looking for CLICK HERE
