NYC Icon Joey Arias and the delicious Charly Zastrau team up together to fan the flames of love, desire and change. This evening they share original songs, jazz and pop-classics, and a special nod to the work of film composer Bernard Hermann. Drawing on his life-long affinity for music, Arias & Zastrau take you on a journey across musical genres (jazz, pop, rock, experimental) that spans his earliest musical influences; his days at Capitol Records; his tenure as the lead singer of Strange Party (an influence on the Talking Heads); and his original songs from Jazzo~Lozzo, an album that quite literally made Arias big in Japan Arias revives this rich backlog of musical history, with Zastrau, as medium and muse, reflecting on the roots of his career and redefining, deconstructing his own musical language and history.
More than most, Mr. Arias understands the risks and rewards of playing with fire. Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Joey Arias is a demigod of the demimonde. Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
The shock is not in the imitation of Holidays sound but in the intensity of Mr. Arias feeling. John Lahr, The New Yorker
Eat your heart out, Madonna.Ben Brantley, The New York Times
