Tom Lemczyk

Tom is a musician/songwriter presently on piano/keyboards/chromatic harmonica and vocals. He is a native of Canada, born in Kitchener, Ontario. He has a Masters engineering degree and is self-taught on all things music. Having lived for over 20 years in the US, he now resides in Arizona. "I started out playing mostly folk and blues harmonica, with piano joining in on whatever I could figure out, and of course singing everyone else's lyrics eventually drove me to write my own. Then the chromatic harmonica just blew everything wide open for me - there's a whole big world of music out there waiting for exploration! Being research oriented in training, I think in hindsight it was only natural that I would eventually expand into jazz and uninhibited musical journeys". Four earlier albums, recorded in Canada 1994-1996, are available on Tom's website

Sara Filipova

For years, Sara Filipova has been one of Vienna’s best-kept secrets. Her voice – capable of both whispered intimacy and full-throated acrobatics – has supported a wide variety of artists in recent years. With her solo debut, Black And White Café, Sara takes center stage for the first time. The five songs on the EP draw liberally from her experience in R&B, jazz, and classical music, but are closer in spirit to great singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon. Accompanying herself at the piano, she reflects on the transience of life and the human condition; the result is an intimate, moving portrait of a young woman sung in her own words

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
