Richard Cortez Duo with Tyler Henderson Cover

Tickets: $15 - $45 (price includes 10% vendor ticketing fee) 7:00 show: Doors @ 6:00 A leader in the new crop of vocal talents emerging from the New York City jazz scene, Richard Cortez’s golden voice handles the Great American Songbook with deep emotional intelligence, an unbridled passion for song, and rare and moving an activist’s relationship to both his material and his audience. Splitting his time between a number of weekly residencies at iconic venues across the city-among them Club Cumming, owned by actor Alan Cumming, Cortez has focused and refined his artistry while growing his wide fan-base. Recent performances in distinguished productions such as Live at Emmet’s Place with the Emmet Cohen Trio or Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz at Pride with Tony/Grammy Award winner Bryan Carter have marked the vocalist’s career for success. Band lineup: Richard Cortez, vocals Tyler Henderson, piano
