Narrow Escape Duo

Roberta Pescow (vocals) has been singing and composing ever since she can remember. She is classically trained in voice, and she brings to her jazz singing a unique background including folk, rock, and the music of Broadway. Roberta has appeared at numerous venues both in and around New Jersey. In addition to singing and teaching voice, she also plays guitar and piano, enjoys photography, and has a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

Jim Baldessari (guitar, vocals) has been performing music since the age of 7. He plays several instruments, including bass and mandolin. Over the years he has played rock, folk and bluegrass, and has appeared on several independently produced CD's by other musicians. Jim also writes his own songs and enjoys drawing and painting.

Since 1999, Roberta and Jim have focused their talents and energies on performing jazz, blues, swing, and standards from the 1930's and 40's plus their own compositions and a few surprises. They bring warmth, elegance and a touch of humour to the music of the American Songbook.
