“VJ knows how to sell a song and the obvious joy he has in performing is appealing!”– Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene (March 2019)
“Janusz has made a name for himself as a modern cabaret-style singer and skilled pianist with a flair for the dramatic…His richly expressive voice displays a debt to Sinatra as well as Elvis Costello”– Andrew Luthringer, Earshot Jazz (2016)
Opening the night is THE KLEIN PARTY: TKP explores the Top One Million songs from all the Old Countries. This clarinet-saxophone-accordion-ukulele-bass quintet brings a jazz sensibility to klezmer freylachs and bulgars, gypsy dance music, sentimental Italian tunes, novelty Americana, country-and-western favorites, Yiddish theatre music and the occasional opera aria. Sabrina Pope, clarinet; Brandon Campbell, saxophones; Mark Lutwak, accordion; Eric Ray Anderson, ukulele & vocals; and Joe Casalini on the the contrabass.
