Lynne Arriale, one of the best and most exciting jazz pianists around today is coming to the Redstone Room for a workshop, a concert and a cd release party this Sunday, May 20th. I have to admit, I got a copy of her new cd "Give Us These Days" early and I can't get enough of it. It opens with a smokin version of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" and contains a version of the Beatles' "Let It Be" that makes you feel like you're in a smoke filled Paris jazz club and a Sunday morning church service at the same time. For tickets to either the all ages workshop or concert or both call 309-373-0790 or pay at the door. Meanwhile, let me whet your appetite with her take on Lennon & McCartney's classic, "Blackbird."
