Hilary Gardner
“Hilary Gardner, like the great ‘girl singers’ of decades past, brings elegance and wit to every song she sings.  She lends a touch of vintage cool to new material and makes the old songs sound fresh again.”

Souleymane Badolo With Cynthia Oliver
“Souleymane Badolo was born in Burkina Faso, and started his dance career with a traditional African troupe. Since moving to New York in 2009, he has worked with the contemporary choreographer Reggie Wilson, but his own pieces draw strongly from his history and heritage. In “Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO,” he looks at the cultural legacy passed from his own great-great-grandfather. And his new “Barack,” is, press materials say, an acknowledgment of the people who have helped him in his move to New York. Opening the evening is a duet by Cynthia Oliver, persuasively titled “BOOM!” — (ROSLYN SULCAS, NYT)

Elegant Ellington
“Ignoring for a moment that the title is a lesson in redundancy, this jazz-cabaret program should access the Duke Ellington songbook from a variety of angles. The singers on deck almost ensure that outcome: along with the scholarly Michael Feinstein, they include the literary crooner Kurt Elling, the bluesman Blind Boy Paxton and the up-and-comer Brianna Thomas.” — (NATE CHINEN, NYT)
