Acclaimed jazz vocalist Rebecca Kilgore
and the Harry Allen Jazz Quartet
returned to New York with a new show, "I Like Men -- Songs about Men from Tin Pan Alley to Broadway," for five nights at the Metropolitan Room from March 6 to March 10. Kilgore, known in jazz circles for her airborn and erudite stylings, made her Metropolitan Room debut. BroadwayWorld was there and brings you photos from the engagement below!
Portland Oregon based, Kilgore has been a standout in the Northwest jazz scene since the mid '80s, where she has led her own quintet, and performed and recorded with John Miller, Portland's Tall Jazz Trio, and Dave Frishberg among others. With The Harry Allen Jazz Quartet, she has made regular appearances in New York, notably at Feinstein's for the past three years.
Swing Bros. recording artist Harry Allen, tenor sax, is a NY Nightlife Award-winning performer who also records extensively, notably with John Pizzarelli. In 2010 Allen and Kilgore collaborated on "Some Like it Hot -- The Music of Marilyn Monroe," an eye-opening reassessment of screen siren Marilyn Monroe's musical abilities.
Allen's quartet features Ehud Asherie on piano, Kevin Kanner on drums and Joel Forbes on bass.

Stephen's life seems to have always revolved around a camera and a piano. He studied at Manhattan School of Music and performed in the "Borsht Belt" during college vacations, where in the true DIRTY DANCING tradition he met his wife Eda. Stephen was a Board Member of the First All Children's Theater and his wife, a classical pianist, is a Board Member of Barrington Stage Co. In between he made time to be CEO of a multi national machinery company and President of a domestic Textile Mfg. Co. In retirement, he now takes pictures of his 5 grandchildren and various other performers. |
