Shelley Neill Group - The Currency is Heat CD Release

For ArtWeek Boston!

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

8 PM


For ArtWeek Boston this Fall, the Jazz Club presents the CD Release of Shelley Neill’s The Currency Is Heat. The evening will be made even hotter with sizzling BBQ and fiery exotic libations from East Coast Grill. From Jazz Times Magazine “Neill is a shadow-enfolded high priestess, enticing passers-by to surrender before spell-binding song.” Her newest project The Currency Is Heat will be performed with her recording partners: Laszlo Gardony on piano, Ron Mahdi on bass and Yoron Israel on drums, and promises to both surprise and delight the listening audience with startlingly original takes on familiar tunes.
