Betty Buckley and her Jazz Quartet

The legendary Betty Buckley, or Miss Betty Lynn, as she is affectionately known by her of fans, gathered up her Jazz Quartet - Clifford Carter (Keyboards), Billy Drews (Sax), Tony Marino (Bass), and Anthony Pinciotti (Drums) and spent 5 nights at Birdland on West 44th dazzling and mesmerizing all those who flocked to see her.   

An important warning to all those show tune crazy fans out there - she warns right at the outset - NO SHOW TUNES!  (fear not, she'll be packing them in at Feinstein's at the Regency in February with an all-show-tunes review!).

The songs were varied - melodic, jazzy, sultry, strong, and a little rock and roll thrown in.  She's got a range like no other.   Don't worry - she'll be back.  And if you can't wait to see her, check out her new CD - Quintessence
