Out & About - Judy Roberts and Greg Fishman
Chicago Sun Times- 8/ 20/ 2004

Judy Roberts and Greg Fishman will team up to present an evening of cabaret jazz on Wednesday at Maxim's: The Nancy Goldberg International Center in the Gold Coast.

Although Roberts and Fishman perform in several other successful groups, including their Grammy-nominated jazz quartet and Fishman's internationally renowned duo, Two for Brazil, the entertainers say their favorite format is their intimate jazz duo.

The interplay between Roberts' piano and Fishman's saxophone showcases their "musical mind-reading," and features everything from lush ballads to free-wheeling Bach-like inventions. Roberts' unique vocal interpretations of jazz standards and bossa novas, complemented by Fishman's intense yet sensitive saxophone and flute, give a fresh new sound to classic material. Their program will feature selections from the songbooks of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, and Duke Ellington.

Maxim's is at 24 E. Goethe. Admission is $20. Reservations are recommended. Call (312) 742-1748. The program is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs as part of the Play on Cabaret series which salutes the Great American Songbook.

Parking is $10 at 1350 N. Lake Shore for patrons of Maxim's.
