**KPLU 88.5FM hosts Connie Evingson and Pearl Django live in studio Tuesday, April 29th around noon. Tune in!
KPLU 88.5 NPR and the Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley present vocalist Connie Evingson with Seattle’s own gypsy jazz band Pearl Django. Band members include Connie Evingson (vocals) Neil Andersson and Ryan Hoffman (guitars), Rick Leppanen (bass) Michael Gray (violin) and David Lange (accordion). Set times on Tuesday and Wednesday are at 7:30pm.
Connie Evingson returns to Jazz Alley in support of her eighth and most recent CD, Little Did I Dream and plans to do a few tunes from the new release. “Evingson scored a coup when she cajoled St. Paul-bred songwriting legend Dave Frishberg to play piano throughout the recording. Having Frishberg’s lifelong buddy Dave Karr play sax and flute is soulful icing on the cake. Toss in a great rhythm section, intimate voice/piano duets and a vocal turn by Frishberg on his should-be-a-hit “snowbound” and Evingson’s latest is the pick of the litter.” – Tom Surowicz, Star Tribune
