May 26, 2013 to Jun 9, 2013
If it's Sunday afternoon, it's JazzTime at Vicky's. When talented studio and recording musicians who also love jazz combine their talents a kind of synergy happens based on a deep understanding of music that results in a spontaneous musical conversation. This is the case with JazzTime, the newest group swinging the jazz standards at Vicky’s. Don Shelton vocalized with the Hi-Lo’s and Singers Unlimited and is amazing on clarinet, sax and flute. He recently played with Barbara Cook and the LA Phil. He worked with Clare Fischer in sessions for Prince, Michael Jackson and Robert Palmer, plus the Clare Fischer Latin Jazz Quintet and Bob Florence band. Drummer Allen Goodman brings years of experience from NY’s supper clubs to Carnegie Hall to NBC TV as a performer and studio drummer, as well as accompanying singers such as Dinah Shore, Johnny Mathis, Peggy Lee, Liza Minnelli, Vikki Carr, Bobby Troup, Billie Holiday & others. Larry Holloway, who recently moved to Palm Springs, brings depth of experience and a unique approach to bass as exemplified by virtuoso bassist Red Mitchell and, in fact, was the first recipient of the “Red Mitchell Scholarship Award.” Regular pianists such as Chip Smith, Andy Langham, Joe Bagg, Jeff Colella, Josh Nelson & Jon Mayer bring their distinctive musical gifts to the group. Hal Linden joins the band when his schedule permits. Each performance is a singular thing, a shared afternoon of the magic of jazz. So don’t miss a single Sunday...you never know what great thing can happen, just that it will! A new guest joins the band each and every week.

JUNE 2, 2013 - DOLORES SCOZZESI w/ ANDY LANGHAM on piano. Jazz critic Don Heckman says about Dolores Scozzesi: “As a painting tells an artist which direction to take, as the characters in a novel can inform a writer of their hopes and desires, so, too, can a song find its own way through the voice of an intuitive, receptive singer. . . her warm contralto illuminates dark passions as well as bright spirits.”
Pianist Andy Langham is one of the most in-demand musicians in Los Angeles and around the world today. His fresh takes on jazz standards from all eras, coupled with intriguing new tunes, make every performance unique.
SEASON FINALE! JUNE 9, 2013 - Guests DEBBY BOONE w/ CHIP SMITH on piano. Debby Boone appears in program of pop/jazz tunes as only she can do them. Debby Boone earned instant fame when her first single, “You Light Up My Life”, was an overnight hit. The tune claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard charts for 10 straight weeks. Debby has won three GRAMMY Awards and seven GRAMMY nominations.
Debby’s new EP Album and show titled “Swing This” was inspired by her childhood years immersed in the Las Vegas “Swing” culture of the ‘60’s while traveling with her father, Pat Boone. “Swing This” is a reflection of the music, glamour, and pure exhilaration that led Debby to become a performer in the first place. In Debby’s own words, “Swing This” is “the party I’ve been waiting to throw my whole life.” Debby has just completed a successful two week run of her new show at New York’s Café Carlyle.
It has become a “tradition” for Debby to honor outstanding music students at her appearances; this year under the sponsorship of The Los Angeles Jazz Society and its President, Flip Manne, the widow of the great and world famous drummer Shelly Manne. The mission of the LAJS, founded in 1985, is “to excite, educate and engage students with the vibrant rhythms and sounds of the only indigenous American music – jazz.” / $15 Cover.
