    TIME TO CELEBRATE! In her first cabaret show in 2021, Karen Mason will ring in her birthday at Feinstein’s/54 Below! It will be a night of unforgettable music, stories, laughter, and joy, and perhaps a few surprises… because you never know what will happen with a birthday girl! Karen’s all-new show will feature her favorite songs and arrangements, including “Help/Being Alive!,” “Lulu’s Back in Town,” “Now I Have Everything/Married,” including songs written by the songwriters she has known throughout her career, as well as new music chosen specifically for this celebratory night. Birthdays are about spending time with your favorite people at your favorite place, and there’s no place that Karen would rather be than with you and her music on her special night. Don’t miss it!

    Karen Mason is the star of Broadway’s Mamma Mia, Wonderland, Hairspray, and Sunset Boulevard, as well as the first US tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies. She is also the recipient of the 2019 MAC Lifetime Achievement Award. Few performers can transfer as seamlessly between Broadway, recording, concert, and television as has Karen Mason. She has graced the stages of Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Feinstein’s/54 Below, Birdland, and The Drury Lane Oakbrook, as well as Royal Albert Hall in London.

Please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including patter). Please also bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Flash photography is not allowed. Please turn off all noise making devices and give performers your undivided attention.

    Join us in the Birdland Theater to enjoy award winning vocalist Gabrielle Stravelli & the Tim Armacost Quintet!

    Award winning vocalist Gabrielle Stravelli and Grammy nominated saxophonist Tim Armacost make a formidable front line for their hard-hitting quintet featuring pianist Art Hirahara, bassist Pat O’Leary and drummer Eric Halvorson. Gabrielle’s voice and Tim’s sax blend seamlessly whether playing their own original compositions or the group’s adventurous arrangements of songs from pop, jazz, the American Songbook and more.

    Gabrielle Stravelli’s pairing of a jazz artist’s musicianship with an ability to interpret lyrics and connect with an audience has led to a richly varied career. She regularly leads her quartet in performances at the country’s finest jazz clubs and performing arts centers and has headlined domestic and international jazz festivals including the 2021 & 2018 WBGO Jazz on the Mountain Festival in New Paltz, NY, the 2019 Providencia Jazz Festival in Santiago, Chile, the 2016 All That Jazz Festival in Eleuthera, Bahamas and the 2014 Maree Sonore Festival in Venice, Italy. As a US State Department “Jazz Ambassador” she has performed and taught throughout Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and South America. “Dream Ago,” her 2017 release which consists primarily of original material, received a rare 5- star review from Downbeat Magazine and her 2019 release “Pick Up My Pieces: Gabrielle Stravelli Sings Willie Nelson” was featured by noted music critic Will Friedwald in the WSJ and awarded the 2020 Bistro Award for Outstanding Recording.

    After a life of travel and discovery on three continents, Grammy nominated saxophonist Tim Armacost is one of the most important improvisers on the New York scene today, with a big tenor sound and an impeccable rhythmic sense. Tim has worked with a phenomenal number of jazz greats, including Al Foster, Jimmy Cobb, Kenny Barron, Roy Hargrove and Randy Brecker. He has recorded 12 critically acclaimed records as a leader, performed on more than 50 as a sideman, and has composed for Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. A widely respected educator, Tim has lead clinics at universities throughout the U.S., Japan and Europe in addition to teaching and performing abroad with the U.S. State Department’s Rhythm Road program.
