FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LADIES DAY CELEBRATES FEMALE JAZZ MUSICIANS
Yonkers, NY—Ladies Day, a jazz trio comprised of vocalist MJ Territo, pianist Linda Presgrave and bassist Iris Ornig, will celebrate and honor women jazz composers and lyricists at the Watercolor Café in Larchmont, NY on August 9.
Ladies Day will play a selection of songs by female jazz musicians, such as the trombonist and arranger Melba Liston, pianists Marian McPartland and Bertha Hope, the singer Peggy Lee, and the lyricist and poet Fran Landesman. Ladies Day will also perform their own original compositions and collaborations.
“While excellent women musicians, especially instrumentalists, are increasingly visible on the jazz scene, their equally excellent compositions are not as widely known,” says Territo, the group’s founder. “I’m thrilled to be presenting this program, as it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the contributions of jazz’s female composers and lyricists.”
The Watercolor Café is one of Westchester County’s finest restaurants and music venues, and is justly celebrated for hosting outstanding jazz performances. It is located at 2094 Boston Post Road, Larchmont NY. Reservations can be made at www.watercolorcafe.net or 914-883-2214. The show begins at 7:30. There is an $8 cover charge.
