Brad Cole / Dimitri Landrain: Mostly Standards

Caffe Vivaldi veterans pianist Dimitri Landrain and singer songwriter Brad Cole team up for a set of Mostly Standards: offering a new twist on many old and not so old favorites. 

 

The music of Brad Cole address the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insight. As a nationally touring artist, Cole has shared the stage with Chris Stapleton, Shovels and Rope, Ingrid Michaelson and The Kink’s Dave Davies and in 2015, Brad was named Winner of The 2015 Great American Song Contest. Along with Mostly Standards, Cole’s numerous side projects include: the jazz / blues cover project Bossa Blue and the acclaimed singer/songwriter trio Cole, Nakoa & Treacher.  Brad splits his time between Nashville and New York City and tours extensively both as a solo acoustic performer and with his full band.  Find Brad on Spotify, iTunes and at Bradcolemusic.com

 

Dimitri Landrain is a French-Norwegian pianist and composer living in New York City. He splits his time between jazz performance, writing for musical theater, and is currently a member of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop. You can find his solo piano jazz album "September, NYC" (including a composition about Cafe Vivaldi - "Cafe At Vivaldi/Tipsy Waltz") currently available on iTunes and Spotify.

    Pete Muller & Friends

    Pete Muller has been a resident artist at Caffe Vivaldi for over 10 years.

    Some people know Muller as a pioneer in quant investing. Not as many know that, while he was emerging as a giant in the financial world, he was also busking in New York City subways, sharing his original and wholehearted songs with harried New York City commuters.

    Muller, trained early in jazz improvisation and honing his skills hosting a songwriting circle in New York City, his music has captured the attention of such varied outlets as The New York Times and Forbes Magazine. Inspired by the likes of Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, and Elvis Costello, Pete's lyrics tend toward the honest and the straightforward and his latest album, Two Truths and a Lie, was produced by the Grammy-winning Rick DePofi.

    Most recently, as a Berklee College of Music Trustee, Muller partnered with the music school and the City of New York to renovate and revitalize the storied Power Station Recording Studios in New York. With an emphasis on “reinventing” music education, the new facility will concentrate on continuing education for school-age children, teacher training, and providing internships to current Berklee students. 

    Do better. Keep going. Muller's message is as simple as it is inspiring.

      Rob Holzer

      Veteran singer/songwriter Rob Holzer is enjoying his second year in residence at Caffe Vivaldi. Born and bred in New York, Rob brings a soulful and intimate writing style to his solo performance, stepping out of the band environment he's enjoyed through the years to dive deeper into his material as a solo artist. Playing songs he's written over the past 20+ years in and out of the city, his music tells the stories of love and loss, isolation and connection, and ultimately revelation in the thoroughly human experience of a life well-lived. Rob is often joined by some of the city's finest musicians for guest appearances. The vibe is laid back with a community feel and is quintessentially West Village ...more akin to a living room performance.
