Show Description


“Jenkins will knock you flat….I’ve never been so seduced by music completely new to me yet as embraceable as any from the classic American songbook.”
-Bloomberg News’ Jeremy Gerard


“Mr. Rosen’s earthy, tuneful songs…are notable, a continually shifting musical patchwork of blues, folk, jazz and pop ….As Ms. Jenkins sang in a sweet, sunny voice with an undertone of resolve, a poet in touch with her life force smiled through the music.”
-NY Times, Stephen Holden
 The team of outstanding jazz/pop and Broadway vocalist CAPATHIA JENKINS and award-winning songwriter/guitarist and arranger LOUIS ROSEN returns to the Pub to celebrate the release of their third CD, THE ACHE OF POSSIBILITY (Di-Tone). The new album includes twelve new songs, eight with music and lyrics by Louis, and four with words by their favorite collaborator, the renowned poet Nikki Giovanni. These are songs of love and politics and choices; songs that capture the mood and spirit of this moment—THE ACHE OF POSSIBILITY.

Louis (on guitar) will lead their acclaimed band, which includes Rob Moose on electric guitar and violin; Andrew Sterman, flute, saxophone and clarinet; Richie Vitale on Trumpet and Fluegelhorn; Mark Sherman, vibraphone and percussion; Dave Phillips, bass; Gary Seligson on drums, and Aisha de Haas, background vocals.


The concerts will also feature songs from Capathia and Louis’ first two albums, ONE OUNCE OF TRUTH: The Nikki Giovanni Songs (PS Classics, 2008) and SOUTH SIDE STORIES (RoseCap, 2006).
