AS IS Featuring Alan & Stacey Schulman
Event on 2017-07-29 19:00:00
AS IS brings its signature jazz interpretations of the Great American Songbook to Rockwood Music Hall this July. The duo has been busy this spring recording their upcoming sophomore CD with Grammy-nominated producer, James McKinney, expanding their signature intimacy with the talents of many special guest artists including drummer, Marcus Baylor; acclaimed saxophonist, David Binney; harmonica virtuoso, Gregoire Maret; bassists Rashaan Carter and Matt Geraghty, Latin percussionist Alejandro Lucini, vocalists Christie Dashiel and Carl “Kokayi” Walker, and members of the Kennedy Center orchestra.
Alan Schulman is a noted jazz guitarist from Cincinnati, Ohio who studied with the late great guitarist Cal Collins (formerly of the Benny Goodman Orchestra) and has appeared with noted jazz artists Anita Baker, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis & Michael Feinstein. A jazz vocal stylist, Stacey Schulman’s voice reminds the listener of both the distinctive character of Garland and the soaring emotion of Streisand. A native of the New York City area, she has lent her signature sound to numerous radio commercials, television series and movie soundtracks. Together, the jazz duo has developed a reputation for their intimate interpretations of the Great American Songbook as well as re-arrangements of more contemporary Top 40 classics. Deemed “nothing short of enchanting” by All About Jazz, the duo’s debut CD, A Love Like Ours, hit #1 on the Amazon jazz vocal charts in its first week of distribution and was featured on Jonathan Schwartz’s Great American Songbook broadcast on WNYC in New York City, NPR-affiliate, KASU’s Something Blue and the Oliver Sean international radio show across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Ardent advocates for Lyme Disease research and support, the duo donated all proceeds from their debut effort to the Global Lyme Alliance and lent their CD’s opening track, “Summertime” to the organization's PSA campaign, which ran over 3500 times on commercial radio stations across America in 2015.
