      Happy New Year all! 
       
      We're back and just eased back in with 2 amazing funhouse mirror shows with Leslie Kritzer as Patti Lupone (final show this Saturday night), and Steve Cuiffo as Lenny Bruce, and now we kick into high gear with the NY Times Emerging Artist Series featuring old favorites and new - keep your ears out for Christina Courtin on WNYC's Soundcheck on Friday afternoon, and make special note that Morley will be doing something brand new for Sunday - bringing the Sirius String Quartet as part of her show, which will be a real treat. But more favorites old and new continue after the weekend, including current Grammy nominated NY stalwarts the Groove Collective, recently added double bill with Holcombe Waller and Jay Brannan, and more.
       
      You'll want to make note of a plethora of special shows just added before the holiday break that you may have missed, including a Sunday night Kiki & Herb late night run, the return of Jackie Hoffman in a brand new show, Jackie with a Z, a second Amy Winehouse show added at 11:30 on January 16, since the first one sold out so quickly (though check for a handful of tix that will soon be released for 9:30 also), a jam-packed show of downtown luminaries assembled by Sxip Shirey of Luminescent Orchestrii ame, and a bunch more that you'll find listed below.
       
      Keep your eyes out for a very serious string of killer jazz shows coinciding with the IAJE (Internat'l Assoc of Jazz Eeducators) conference - and then an eclectic mix of some of the biggest shows of the year the following week coinciding with the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference.  Since so many industryites are in town for both events, many shows are close or already sold out so definitely plan ahead.
       
      APAP is also the inspiration for what has been one of the true highlights of my year, and one of my proudest co-creations, globalFEST, which we produce along with World Music Institute and World Music/Crash Arts, with support from the Cultural Services Department of the French Embassy and many other partners listed below.  This year's line-up is going to take things to a new level, as we expand into a new, larger venue, Webster Hall on Sunday, January 21, with thanks to the Bowery Presents.  It's coming up soon, and tickets generally sell out in advance, so consider this your growing drumbeat of a warning....buy your tickets now before all the press starts hitting. We'll be announcing set times soon, but the line-up is amazing, even to those of us who put it together....
      Lenine, Lila Downs, Dengue Fever, Babylon Circus,
      Le Trio Joubran, Les Primitifs du Futur, Julia Sarr & Patrice Larose, Andy Palacio & The Garifuna Collective
      Sara Tavares, Boom Pam,
      Carolina Chocolate Drops, Lucia Pulido & Palenque
       
      Wanna try before you buy???  Check out videos of globalFEST artists online at Youtube with our new playlist:
       
      Or listen to audio samples at www.globalfest-ny.org
       
       
      You'll start seeing me say this alot, but DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW (unless you are at Joe's Pub for Phil Kline's Zippo Songs and John the Revelator with Theo BleckmannTodd Reynolds, David Cossin, ETHEL and Lionheart, or for Diamanda Galas.)
       
      Alright...time to hit send.  Look forward to welcoming 2007 with you at the Pub sometime soon.

      Chicago based Singer Songwriter Nicholas Barron is the new deal. He has been recognized as having one of the most unique and soulful voices since Macy Gray.  Mixing Organic Rock with Poetic lyrics, The Nicholas Barron Band play with a rare abandon and passion and is the heartland equivalent as the E Street Band.

      Friday, January 5
      ADRIANO SCHIAVO
      Born in Brooklyn and raised in New Jersey,  Adriano was the winner of VH-1's "Best Unsigned Artist Award".   Adriano's music has drawn comparisons to Sting, James Taylor, David Gray and has been featured on the WB Network's hit show Dawson's Creek as well as NBC's Passions and Strong Medicine.  Adriano was a finalist in the Starbucks/NEMO Emerging Artist Competition; he also performed at both the NEMO Music Festival (Boston, MA) and the Woodstock Film Festival (Woodstock, NY).
      7:30pm, $12

      Friday, January 5
      TAYLOR MCFERRIN
      Taylor McFerrin is a one-man show. Combining his skills as a producer and performer, Taylor McFerrin is making music heads around the world take notice as he seamlessly builds songs from scratch with his ambitious live show. Fender Rhodes, Synths, Samples, Vocals and Beatboxing are meshed together as Taylor builds from his roots in 60s Soul to his vision of future Hip-Hop. Gaining attention from his first single "Broken Vibes," which debuted on Gilles Peterson BBC World Wide Radio, Taylor keeps the buzz on high for his debut album with his undeniably intriguing solo performance.
      9:30pm, $15

      Saturday, January 6
      ROB GONZALEZ
      Wisconsin-raised singer-songwriter and pianist Rob Gonzalez is a "Do-It-Yourself" and "American Dream" success story all wrapped into one. Over the past five years, Gonzalez has conquered the US college circuit, performing over 250 shows coast to coast, steadily building his legion of devoted fans. Gonzalez's self-made story and genuine talent lured an incredible line up of A-list producers and musicians; including England's legendary arranger/Grammy winner Paul Buckmaster (Elton John, The Rolling Stones) and guitarist Brian Ray, current touring guitarist for none other than Sir Paul McCartney.
      7:30pm, $12

      Saturday, January 6
      MARTIN LUTHER
      Music extraordinaire, Martin Luther is now being called one of music's next big movements. Exactly where do you fit an artist that can belt out a gospel hymn that will make you catch the holy ghost, strike the chords of a guitar like Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, and pen a bit reminiscent of Earth Wind and Fire, Prince and Sly and the Family Stone all rolled into one? The truth of the matter is that Martin Luther is just one unclassifiable, genre -defying artist who dares you to step up and take a look at the future of music.
      9:30pm, $15

      Sunday, January 7
      MORLEY with The Sirius String Quartet
      Urban-folk artist Morley exudes radiance and warmth, with hints of mystery, intrigue, and hidden emotional undercurrents. Her cosmopolitan songs, heard on her latest album, Days Like These, are simultaneously spiritual, sensual and down-to-earth, with a soulful, internationalist bent.  Reflective of her diverse influences as a poet, dancer, choreographer, and singer, her voice and music are a distinctive hybrid of a range of artists from Roberta Flack to Sade to Annie Lenox to Joni Mitchell, with a sound that is all her own. Sensuality, soul, intellect, and relevance are qualities she shares with these artists, and Morley carries on their legacy of writing and performing music from the heart (and mind) for the heart and mind in a sound that is all her own.   Recently licensed to Universal France  and just released in the US on Circular Moves, Days Like These has earned stellar reviews from Rolling Stone, Vibrations, and Musiq magazines, leading to concerts with superstars Amadou et Mariam, Simply Red and Raul Midon.
      7:30pm, $15

      Sunday, January 7
      CHRISTINA COURTIN'S RUNNING KICKS
      A singer-songwriter in the grand tradition of the Young New York Songstress, Christina Courtin has a few extra tricks up her sleeve.  She has a vocal chutzpah that instantly disarms an audience.  She forsakes the solo act, in favor of playing with a full band including guitar, percussion, stand-up bass and, on occasion, violin, which she's been playing since age 3.  She has an uninhibited performance style, which Time Out New York describes as "a fearlessness that most vocalists reserve for the shower."   Her songs are peppered with her wry humor, and while she can deliver mid-tempo ballads like the best of 'em, Christina can also rock out.   Together with her masterful band, The Running Kicks, Christina genre-hops from blues to soul to rock, blending in elements of jazz and classical music.  Guitarist Kyle Sanna and percussionist Mathias Kunzli's intricate musical flourishes adorn Christina's self-penned songs on subjects like break-ups, discarded photographs, winter months, soap and blue collar men.

      HOLCOMBE WALLER / JAY BRANNAN
      Monday, January 8 at 9:30 pm, $12
      HOLCOMBE WALLER
      Portland based singer Holcombe Waller's unearthly voice harkens back to Donovan or a young Chris de Burgh, complimenting lilting melodies with his emotionally and politically charged lyrics and set within intricate arrangements of warm acoustic guitars, rumbling electric keyboards and the occasional banjo. With smartly written lyrics and an unparalleled voice, charming young troubadour Jay Brannan, "Ceth" in John Cameron Mitchell's Shortbus, deftly blends folk and rock with a slight touch of pop in a night of original music that will leave you singing along.
