NYC: KAREN WYMAN RETURNS WITH PERFORMANCES IN MARCH AT THE MET
In her first major engagement in 25 years Karen Wyman continues her exciting and decisive return at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM

The Bronx-born Wyman was just 16 when she astonished Dean Martin and his national television audience in 1969. In short order she made appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and on shows hosted by Carol Burnett, Jim Nabors, Glen Campbell, Dick Cavett, David Frost, Merv Griffin and Mike Douglas. She performed in nightclubs and recorded two albums and several singles for Decca Records, and had another on the way. Then circumstances changed and in 1989 Wyman opted to start a family. Still possessed of a rocket-fueled voice, and, now with the life-wisdom she admits she lacked as a teenager, Wyman couldn't be more ready and willing. There is a $25 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

Fox in the Henn House has taken these songs from David Lynch's soundtracks, along with dialogue extracted from his screenplays, and arranged them to tell a new story (using Lynch's dark, Film Noir style) of two people, haunted and tortured by love.

The Joey Arias Experience revives this rich backlog of musical history with Arias as medium and muse.

NYC: SPYRO GYRA AT THE BLUE NOTE
Spyro Gyra will perform at THE BLUE NOTE
(131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592 - http://www.bluenote.net/ ) on Tuesday through Sunday, March 11th through 16th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. During its career, the band has performed over five thousand shows, released 29 albums (not counting "Best Of" compilations), and sold over 10 million albums, while also achieving one Platinum and two Gold releases. As the band celebrates 35 years since its first release and looks forward to celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2014, it slows little sign of slowing down, gaining Grammy nominations for each of its last four albums. The first few years saw the group's identity split into a dynamic live act and a producer-centric recording process, borne out of the rotating cast of characters springing from the band's jazz jam beginnings. The group's early albums were the product of the core band and a great number of the top session players in New York. In 1983, Beckenstein made the decision to make the albums the work of the band members he shared the stage with night after night, only supplementing with occasional guests. Although the band underwent several personnel changes in the '80s, these shifts slowed down about 20 years ago. Julio Fernandez became the group's guitarist in 1984, Scott Ambush assumed the bass chair in 1991, and Bonny Bonaparte took over the drums in 2006, making him the "new guy" at just over five years with the band. After stretches releasing albums on the MCA, Amherst, GRP, and Heads Up International imprints, Spyro Gyra returned to Amherst for its latest release, 2011's A Foreign Affair. There is a $20-$35 cover.

He is dedicated to the great tradition of jazz drumming as conceived by artists like Max Roach, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Billy Higgins, and Arthur Taylor, with whom he studied. Farnsworth was introduced to jazz at the age of 12 by his brother, trombonist and saxophonist John Farnsworth. Since then, he has become one of the most respected drummers in the scene, appearing on more than 70 CDs with musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Cedar Walton, Pharoah Sanders, Eric Alexander, and Benny Golson.

SAN FRANCISCO: BEN TAYLOR AND THE LADY CROONERS
Ben Taylor plus The Lady Crooners will perform at YOSHI'S
(1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-655-5600) on Wednesday, March 12th at 8:00 pm. Ben Taylor listens and thinks. A lot. In fact, the word Word is something Ben mulls over daily. It is, when you think about it, the only word that IS what it means. The meaning of word connects us - in any language - and this idea of communication is very important to Ben, as is the paradox of an individuated consciousness (think: ego) versus collective unconscious, that which unifies us all (happiness, fear, hate, love). Heavy? Not really, just a part of the ever evolving, highly intelligent, vulnerable, loving brain of Ben Taylor, musician, son, brother, friend and deep believer. Not only has Taylor spent the past few years thinking, he has also spent a lot of time LISTENING. Listening is Ben Taylor's first album in four years, the last being the critically acclaimed The Legend of Kung Folk Part 1. As a successful and eclectic independent artist for the past ten years, it isn't just anyone who takes four years to put out their next album. There is a $25 cover.
