Sink into the autumn-colored, nostalgic world of singer-songwriter, Molly Jewell, where moody arrangements cradle her lilting confessions about the complications of human relationships, heartache of many kinds, and wandering through it all. Her new EP, "I Wish You Loved Me Like You Started To" will be available everywhere this fall--"an electronic synth-led push and pull of percussion and rapid-fire piano...recalling the electric energy of Regina Spektor, Angel Olsen and Fiona Apple."-Billboard Magazine, 2017.
Two full sets of music, with the first set dedicated to The James Taylor Songbook, featuring Bossa Blue, led by acclaimed singer-songwriter Brad Cole! The concept behind Bossa Blue is the group’s unique stylistic blend of Bossa/Samba, Cool Jazz, Dub, Soul and Blues interpretations of the songs that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Brad Cole will be accompanied by an extraordinary group of players that includes Sarah Kervin, Andy Mac and Julia Adamy (plus some surprise guests!).
“All great things make a comeback. Or at least, they should. In terms of great music, nothing strikes the heart...more than jazz, and nothing inspires artist Brad Cole more than old school, jazz-inspired, bossa nova. Looking for an outlet to explore the sounds of bossa nova, Cole started Bossa Blue, a smoky quartet covering a wide range of classic rock tunes and jazz standards” -Listen Live and Local
“[Brad Cole’s] Lay It Down masterfully takes listeners from the familiar spaces of reflective, lyric-driven folk music to the expansive reaches of bossa nova jazz. It’s a beautiful album.” -No Depression
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.
With Nick Horner Family, Jake Blount, Ginny's Kitchen, Dave Dersham and your host, Jeremy Aaron
Nick Horner's artistic voice can be heard on over 20 recordings and films ranging from folk to rock, jazz, and pop where he has worked on creative teams with including grammy-winning producers/engineers Ron Allaire and Jon Rosenberg. He is also a founder and producer of the Porch Stomp. Jake Blount is a fiddler and banjo player who has studied with modern masters of southern music including Bruce Molsky, the High Ridge Ramblers and the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and he centers and venerates his racial and ethnic heritage through his unique approach to the music. He recently released an album with Tatiana Hargreaves titled "Reparations." Ginny's Kitchen are an all-female old time band recently featured at Jalopy and on the Clearwater Sloop. Dave Dersham is a nationally touring folk songwriter with a warm voice of gold.
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.
