Dim the lights, let the wine breathe and be swept away by the "Gotham Lush" (def. NYC Opulence) jazz stylings of vocalist/violinist Pamela Hamilton. The Ohio native has co-opted the term "Gotham Lush" to describe her style that ranges from rich traditional jazz to neo-soul. Consequently, she has lovingly endured some well intentioned expressions of concerns from some misinformed people for her to consider embracing a more temperate lifestyle. "Gotham Lush" is also the title of her soon to be released debut EP independent recording featuring a compilation of live recordings from various venues in New York City.

Pamela's music is a tantalizing buffet of sumptuous sounds seeped in the richness of blues, traditional jazz, cool jazz, fusion, R&B, neo-soul and everything in between. The end result is just like your favorite home cooked comfort food on a dreary cold day taking your blues away. It feels so good. Can I say that? Imagine Sarah Vaughan meets The Stylistics, Steely Dan, Erykah Badu and Stephanie Grapelli.

Pamela Hamilton has performed and shared the stage with a variety of music luminaries from the Jazz, R&B and Gospel worlds such as Mark O'Connor, John Blake Jr., Derol-Anger Turtle Island Quartet, Oscar Peterson, Louie Bellson, Earl Klugh, Spiro Gyra, War, Al Green, Dazz Band, Bette Midler, Kim Burrell, Hezekiah Walker and Donald Lawrence. She's also an instructor at various music institutions and enrichment programs in New York City including Jazz at Lincoln Center Middle School Jazz Academy, The Harlem's Children Zone, The Harlem School For The Arts and The Mark O'Connor School

Pamela will be performing LIVE at Five Spot on July 20th and 23rd!!!!

The Youngbloodz Jazz Quartet is a performance collective that was started by Christopher S. Hall and Shanelle D. Jenkins, in an effort to bring a greater acceptance and understanding of jazz music and it's historical figures to a younger audience in Harlem, NY.

The group has a performance style of framing traditional jazz standards with contemporary music. The YJQ has been the subject of a documentary produced by New Sandhouse Productions ("The Youngbloodz Jam In Harlem", click to see trailer--www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yDgk6mZyoY) that was featured at City College and supported by the NYWIFT. Several of their members are also arts educators and have performed all over New York City, from Webster Hall and The Apollo Theater, to Tavern On The Green and the Rainbow Room. Some samples of their music can be heard on their website www.myspace.com/youngbloodsjazzquartet

They perform each and every Saturday along with a special guest and this month they will be live at Five Spot on May 14th and 21st. Music will be provided by eclectic DJ Nocentelli.
