Released on: November 2, 2009, 5:32 am
Author: Bellalua Records – a division of New Performance Group
Industry: Entertainment

San Francisco, November 2, 2009 – Fresh from a success in Paris and a sell-out debut of her new show, French Connection, at San Francisco’s Rrazz Room, internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist Lua Hadar appears with music director Jason Martineau in the Bliss Bar’s Sunday Afternoon Jazz Series: The Art of the Duo, curated by Yugoslavian-born jazz great, Larry Vuckovich. Multi-lingual vocalist Hadar and pianist Martineau play three sets of internationally-flavored jazz with some surprise guests. The Bliss Bar, in the heart of San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood, is stylish, yet unpretentious, like the Paris jazz bistro-caves of the ’50s. Sunday, November 22, from 4:30-7:30 pm, $10 cover. Bliss Bar, 4026 24th Street, San Francisco. (415) 826-6200. Free Parking.www.blissbarsf.com

Lua Hadar sings “jazz without borders,” influenced by pop, funk, Latin and international cabaret. This astonishingly talented, Broadway-influenced performer has garnered raves for her soaring range, her charming, swinging delivery, and her ability to interpret lyrics in several languages. Hadar’s love for The Great American Songbook, her appreciation for new songwriting, and her fascination with world cultures influence her music. Lua’s style as a vocalist has been molded by exchange experiences in places as diverse as Bali, Russia, Switzerland, Japan, Thailand, France and Italy. Her interest in world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for her high-octane band, TWIST. The multi-lingual singer and her band were presented at the 10th International Festival of Dance & Music in Bangkok, Thailand, a year ago, following the successful New York City debut of their latest CD, Lua Hadar with TWIST, at Broadway’s Iridium Jazz Club.

Paramore, the 2009 MTV European Music Awards Nominee Releases “Brand New Eyes” Album

Released on: October 8, 2009, 3:46 am
Author: The Grammy-nominated band Paramore
Industry: Entertainment

The new album by Paramore, “brand new eyes” is a monumental milestone in the progression of alternative music.

Hollywood, California October 8th, 2009 – Paramore The album, “brand new eyes” by the alternative band sensation Paramore was released September 29, 2009. Fans have lined-up all over the world for the newest ground-breaking and innovative Paramore CD. With a beautifully foreshadowing performance on MTV’s Unplugged, this album is certain to be Paramore’s biggest hit album to date. The official music video for the first single from the album, “Ignorance” aired on MTV on August 13, 2009.

Paramore has presence. With a nomination for Best Alternative for the 2009 MTV European Music Awards, it would seem that this band knows no bounds. It is evident from the “Brand New Eyes” album that the band has grown considerably to become more experienced musicians and deeper human beings. The sound is all Paramore with increased depth, feeling and candor.

Each of the eleven songs not only helps one see Paramore in a different way, but also alternative music in a whole new way. It is as though the Paramore Album has been able to induce a state of auditory synesthesia transforming every note and vocal expression into a visual array of bliss with a fresh alternative twist. It is clear that the Paramore CD is born out of profound reflection, faith and growing-up fast. There is still the hard hitting and soft contrast that has defined Paramore in the past done only with greater balance and refinement.

Linda Kosut & The Max Perkoff Band “The Newness of You”

Released on: April 24, 2009, 6:12 am
Author: Ruth Lyon, Jizel Music & Design
Industry: Entertainment

BISTRO/BMI AWARD WINNER and NEW YORK MAC NOMINEE, LINDA KOSUT is back in New York for this ONE NIGHT ONLY performance at New York’s prestigious Iridium Jazz Club. Linda will be backed by a stellar JAZZ QUARTET headed by bandleader Max Perkoff on piano & trombone, Tom Hubbard on bass, Scott Latzky on drums and “Sweet” Sue Terry on saxophone & flute. The Iridium Jazz Club is located 1650 Broadway @ 51st Street in New York City. Doors open at 6:00pm and showtime is 6:30pm. Tix: $20 + $15 food/drink minimum. Reservations: 212.582.2121 or www.iridiumjazzclub.com.

In this new show “The Newness of You”, award-winning vocalist Linda Kosut headlining the Max Perkoff Band, will explore the standards – ones that are and ones that should be – including such songwriters as Hoagy Carmichael, Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, as well as never before heard tunes by current composers such as New York-based bob Levy and Sue Terry, as well as Max Perkoff.

Linda is a vocalist with strong acting chops who effortlessly weaves through differing genres with an ability to touch your heart or have you tapping your feet.

Growing up in New York City and transplanted to San Francisco over 20 years ago, Linda only began pursuing her dream of performing a few years ago as she approached “boomer” status, and she has not stopped since. “I am sure that I am not alone in my journey to satisfy a creative bug I’ve had my whole life; but one that up until nearing ‘retirement’ status, I did not pursue,” says Linda. “My excitement of doing my dreams translates to my audience. I have nothing to give but myself and I know that I give that to them. They tell me how I have inspired them. It is my sheer pleasure to do so.”

Her recent national tour – a deeply heartfelt tribute to the late jazz great Oscar Brown Jr., celebrated her sophomore CD and garnered packed houses, awards and national recognition. The Los Angeles Times’ Don Heckman said of her, “… a style of her own with its warm, dark sound and articulate, theatrically trained phrasing, deserved a far longer run.” And the San Francisco Bay Times wrote, “[She] is the real thing. Multi-talented Kosut knows just when to play it small and quiet and when to let ‘er rip … A perfect accompaniment to dinner with friends.”

Last year, Kosut received BackStage Magazine’s 2008 BISTRO/BMI AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING RECORDING. She also received nominations for BEST FEMALE JAZZ VOCALIST and BEST JAZZ RECORDING from MAC, Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs; plus the Cabaret Hotline 2008 MEMBERS’ CHOICE AWARD.
