MJ Territo: "Strictly For The Birds"
"Strictly For the Birds"
Cole Porter. Dave and Iola Brubeck. Abbey Lincoln. George Shearing. The Beatles. These are just some of the composers and lyricists whose bird-inspired tunes jazz vocalist MJ Territo sings in Strictly For The Birds. MJ herself was inspired to put this set together as a tribute to one of her principal influences, the incomparable Carmen McRae, and Carmen's delightful 1958 album, Birds of A Feather. Please join MJ and her trio for a high-flying evening of song and fun. #tweet. #tweet.

"MJ Territo is a veteran singer who is very much a storyteller. With a calm delivery and ear for poetry, she sticks to the lyrics of songs while giving them a gentle swing." Scott Yanow, Downbeat
"[Ladies Day] is a collection of finely composed songs expertly delivered in a thoughtful and compelling production. Well done!" --C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
"Ms. Territo is one of the most mellow jazz singers on the scene today, and her new release is the essence of coolness." Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
