Sheila Jordan | Rosendale Café | October 21 

sheila_jordan_rosendale_cafe.jpg

October 21. At 88, Sheila Jordan is the last living lady singer from the golden age of bebop. A friend and collaborator of none other than Charlie Parker, she was married to his pianist, the great Duke Jordan; studied with Charles Mingus and Lennie Tristano; and, besides recording for Blue Note, has sung with such legends as George Russell, Roswell Rudd, Lee Konitz, and Carla Bley.

Her band for this rare Rosendale Cafe gig is first-rate: saxophonist Rob Scheps, bassist Cameron Brown, and drummer Tony Jefferson. Not a night to miss if you at all dig classic jazz. (The Lucky Five lay it down October 14; Deni Bonet drops by November 4.) 8pm. $20. Rosendale. (845) 658-9048.
