Judy Carmichael in "Let's Swing! Celebrating Music that SWINGS & Peggy Lee's Centennial"

Judy Carmichael in
“Judy Carmichael is a great entertainer.  Her playing is masterly and her linking material show her to be a raconteur in the Ustinov mold.”  -BBC Radio

“ . . . astounding, flawless, captivating.” -The New York Times

“. . .is a major figure in keyboard jazz performance.” -The San Francisco Examiner

“Carmichael exhibits a truly remarkable ability to channel Peggy Lee''s breathy invitingness and her befogged insouciance.” -JazzTimes

First things first. Grammy nominee, Judy Carmichael, is one of the greatest interpreters of stride and swing piano in the world. We hate to brag (well, actually we don’t) but it’s true.

Count Basie nicknamed her “Stride,” for conquering this technically and physically demanding early jazz piano style, and jazz writer, Gary Giddins, sagely observed--about Carmichael’s place in the historically male-dominated world of swing piano--“How ironic that the last man standing is a woman.”

And standing she is. Outstanding. Pianist. Singer. Raconteuse. Judy is 100% proof that you can take this infectious style of music (and her equally infectious personality) anywhere--from a posh nightclub in London, to Carnegie Hall, to a stage in front of ten thousand Brazilians, to a drafty castle in Scotland at the behest of fan, Cameron Macintosh, who insisted Judy be the main event for the annual fundraiser for the National Trust of Scotland.

After a sold-out show in August 2019, Judy returns to Martinis Above Fourth | Table + Stage with multi-Grammy winner, guitarist, Larry Koonse for an evening of joyous, swinging music, celebrating the Great American Songbook and Judy’s own witty compositions.

Let’s swing!
