Dennis Lichtman Hottet with Tamar Korn @ Iridium

Dennis Lichtman Hottet with Tamar Korn
The Iridium
1650 Broadway
Tuesday March 12

Calling all jazz fans who like to go to bed at a reasonable hour. Clarinetist (not to mention bandleader and occasional violinist) Dennis Lichtman is the factotum behind the remarkable late night jam sessions that have been transpiring at Mona’s, way down on the Lower East Side, for over a decade now. While those wee-small-hours sessions are a must catch event (at least once in the lifetime of every jazz lover), this primetime gig at the Iridium is a must for those who prefer to stay in midtown and make it home in time for Stephen Colbert. Mr. Lichtman is a distinctive and expressive player, on all of his instruments, and always puts together first-rate bands; his taste in musicians and tunes is superb, ditto for vocalists. Tamar Korn most often aligns herself with the nascent Hot Jazz movement, but as a singer she blurs boundaries and confuses all categories; let’s just say she’s one of the most compelling voices singing today, with a sound like no one else’s - at least, not in the human race.
