With vocals that hover between a cross-pollination of Edith Piaf and Basia and saxophone shadings reminiscent of Richie Cole, Ireland's Zrazy
are vocalist Maria Walsh and Carole Nelson on alto and soprano saxes and piano
. Churning World Beat, Celtic and Straight Ahead Jazz into a brew they've dubbed "pagan Funk," the duo -- fresh from a win at this year's GLAMAs (Gay and Lesbian American Music Awards) -- will be offering a fresh alternative to the beer-swigging and parking hassles of Jammin' on Main with these two performances at the Greenwich.
Friday and Saturday at the Greenwich.
