7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Thursday, Jun 8 from 7:00 to 10:00 pm Deb Rasmussen (vocals) and Jon Day (piano) will delight you with their spin on the Great American Songbook and their original collaborations. Hotel Blackfoot
Deb and Jon will be playing some new original music, new arrangements of beloved standards and selections from Deb’s new CD, UNSPOKEN, a musical and emotional journey through the parts and types of love we often leave unspoken. Her CD Unspoken – a collaboration with Jon Day – is receiving high praise from international critics.
“Poignant and powerful, Unspoken is a work of emotional beauty, and a treasure for connoisseurs of dulcet vocals. Highly recommended.” Midwest Book Review
“The vocalist’s excellent, measured singing is well supported by her band in creating and presenting a musical neighborhood where the allegory and simile of the lyrics come to life as soon as they are exhaled. Effortless swing and smart programming make this an excellent vocal recording.” Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
