Tuck & Patti or Lee Ritenour or 4 Generations of Miles
- Tuck & Patti: In 1978, a young singer came into audition for a band. As she sang, the guitarist in the corner had a realization: “Within a few seconds of hearing her sing, I knew that I had found my musical soulmate.” Over three decades later, Patti’s velvety voice still blends seamlessly with the delicate strums of Tuck’s guitar.
- Lee Ritenour: The Grammy-winning guitarist’s early exposure to jazz, rock, and Brazilian music helped him to create his smooth sound, while his remarkable dexterity and speed led fans to bestow him with the nickname “Captain Fingers.”
- 4 Generations of Miles: Four musicians came together to celebrate two things they all have in common—first, that they each played in a different edition of the iconic trumpeter’s bands, and second, that none of them plays the trumpet. Omitting Davis’ chosen instrument, the quartet pays tribute to the late, great jazz artist in sets that consist almost exclusively of the remarkable music he created in the 1950s.<p>
Dubbed the “nation’s finest jazz and supper club” by The New York Times, Blues Alley is a feast for ears, eyes, and bellies. The venue treats music lovers to jazz, blues, and soul from the who’s who of the music scene—the18th-century red brick building has soaked up the notes of luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Nancy Wilson, and Grover Washington, Jr. In keeping with the tradition of the jazz clubs and libraries of the 1920s and ’30s, patrons are asked to keep their conversations to a whisper to ensure that everyone enjoys the show. Ears are usually too full of tunes and mouths too full of Creole cuisine to leave room for interruption, anyway. Blues Alley’s menu makes sure of that with dishes such as jambalaya and barbecue ribs.
