December 13. Jazz and cabaret vocalist Michelle LeBlanc has been performing her repertoire of evocative songs on New York City and Hudson Valley bandstands for almost 20 years, working alongside such consummate players as bassist Bill Crow, saxophonist Ed Xiques, guitarist Joe Puma, and jazz polymath David Amram. Her commissioned shows "ELLA!" and "Women in Jazz" have celebrated the art of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, and others. This cozy duo gig at the Division Street Grill pairs LeBlanc with one of her more frequent accompanists, the noted pianist Hiroshi Yamazaki. 7pm. Free. Peekskill. (914) 739-6380; Divisionstreetgrill.com.

  • CD Review: "The Poughkeepsie Jazz Project"

    If you want to catch some of the best jazz in the Hudson Valley, head over to the Derby bar and restaurant on Main Street in Poughkeepsie. Since 2013, the duo of pianist John Scanlon and bassist Ben Basile has held court there every Tuesday, jamming with an array of local talent each week and establishing Po-Town as a rising force in local bop.
