New York City-based vocalist Sarah Lynch will perform with Rick Germanson on piano at the 9pm set tonight, August 8th, at Kavehaz Jazz Café (37 West 26th Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue).
Rick Germanson has been highly in demand as a pianist on the New York City jazz scene for several years now. Rick left his native Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the heels of winning the Grand Prize at The American Pianists’ Association Jazz Piano Competition in 1996. His recent accomplishments have garnered much adoration from the media and led to his being chosen as Best of New Talent in 2004 by All About Jazz NYC.
When “Santa Baby” composer Phil Springer first heard Sarah Lynch sing, he likened her vocal quality to that of a trombone; Springer was the first to call her “a young Peggy Lee.” Since then, with Springer on piano, she has recorded several of his 1940s tunes. At her own gigs, Sarah Lynch combines this unique ‘40s sensibility with her original tunes, along with a fresh take on standards. Tonight's event celebrates those good old days of singer and piano, and will also possibly include the sound of a breaking heart or two.
