Live at Studio5: CHRISTY BENNETT'S FUMÉE GYPSY PROJECT
Christy Bennett, vocals
Art Davis, trumpet
Don Stiernberg, mandolin
Don Stille, accordion
Christian Dillingham, bass
Lovely vocalist Christy Bennett is full of interesting ideas and is backed by a unique, fabulous band. The last time she performed at Studio5 she presented an evening of Django Reinhardts vocal music (!) and it was a near sellout. This performance is a preview of the groups upcoming recording that features the music of Irene Higginbotham. Higginbotham was a composer in the 40s whose music is rarely heard today. Her most famous tune, "Good Morning, Heartache" is a great example of her unique sound and has proven to be just the tip of the iceberg from her body of work. I cant wait to hear what Fumée has cooked up for us this time!
Join us. We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience!
Cash bar, light snacks, free parking right outside. Doors open for cocktails at 7:30.
