It has always been a goal to share the music to as many as possible. Well I'm taking the show on the road. I'll be heading down to Hollywood's MBar with my sistah, colleague and great friend Linda Kosut.

We're calling the show "A Taste of San Francisco."
It's a sampling" of the material for which Linda and I are each known - a wonderful contrast in styles - from my soulful R&B-influenced jazz to Linda's "swingin' and intimate jazz/folk" style. And we finally get to sing together in some cool duets..

So if you happen to be in the area or have friends down that way be sure to spread the word. Two of San Francisco's finest are coming to town.
