CASEY ABRAMS “JAZZ” CD RELEASE @ Upstairs at Vitello’s Supper Club
May 31 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$25 – $40
Casey Abrams is getting Serious about Jazz. His new CD, from audiophile recording label, Chesky Records, is simply, purely, entitled — JAZZ, the inimitable CaseyBassy’s first full jazz standards recording.
This CD Release Party promises to be an intimate celebration. This unique, quirky singer/bassist, will be delivering his own takes on tunes from Cole, Sinatra, Monk, Jobim, and Miss Peggy Lee, up through a little Joe Cocker and the Beatles, while jamming along with some very special surprise musical guests from the West Coast jazz world.
Casey studied throughout high school at the acclaimed jazz program at Idyllwild Arts Academy, in California. Much more recently, he’s been a prominent member of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, on tour and as star of many of PMJ’s viral videos, totaling over 85,800,000 views.
Since Casey’s introduction to national TV audiences as the first upright jazz bass finalist on American Idol, he’s written, arranged, and performed on his 4 albums, and played to crowds of all ages and cultures on 5 continents, including getting to blend and bond with Ethio-Jazz greats in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Now, even after performances at Carnegie Hall with the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and LA’s Catalina Jazz Club with Jack Black & Tenacious D, Casey looks forward most of all to a return to his own jazz foundations in the up-close and welcoming atmosphere of Vitello’s, creating and sharing some of the musical magic of this new album right before your eyes and ears.
