One of the premier interpreters of vintage pop music, Carole J. Bufford, and one of the top boogie-woogie pianists in the world, Arthur Migliazza, join forces to bring you a knock-out musical road trip as refined and elegant as it is lowdown and sexy. Carole and Arthur combine their love and command of classic American music styles into an evening filled with delightful stories, rich education, and utterly irresistible music. Come find out why Carole has been hailed as the new “Last of the Red Hot Mamas” (Wall Street Journal) and why Chuck Berry’s piano player describes Arthur as “The New Master.”
Carole J Bufford has become one of the most sought after performers on the New York City jazz & cabaret scene. She recently completed an unprecedented 10-month run at Birdland Jazz Club and her shows, ‘Speak Easy’ (featuring the Grammy Award-winning Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks), ‘Body & Soul’ and ‘Shades Of Blue’ earned her rave reviews in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The Times (UK) called Carole’s latest appearance in London “the best thing we’ve ever seen!”. Carole has been featured in Michael Feinstein's Songbook Series at Jazz at Lincoln Center and is the recipient of a Nightlife, Bistro and BroadwayWorld Award for Outstanding Vocalist.
Arthur Migliazza began playing the piano professionally at the age of 13 and has since performed on some of the world’s greatest stages, including Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Benaroya Hall in Seattle, as well as on National Public Radio in the US. In 2010 Arthur was inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame and in 2014 he received the Best of the Blues Award for Best Keyboardist in Washington State. As a star of the critically acclaimed Off Broadway show BOOGIE STOMP!, Arthur performed in Times Square, NYC for four months in 2015. His album, Laying It Down, earned Top 20 spots on blues radio charts in the US, France and Australia.
