Amanda Carr: concert & radio interview in LA today!

Praised by veteran jazz historian Nat Hentoff, Amanda Carr, one of my favorite jazz singers in the contemporary scene, appears tonight in Temecula (see details below).
But I woke up earlier today also to tell yoy that this morning she will be at promoting her upcoming CD.

Tune into Pacifica Radio to KPFK at 90.7FM Los Angeles at 10:30am PST (1:30pm EST) for an interview on "Global Village" with guest host Ali Lexa. Amanda talks about her recent and upcoming performances in Southern California and plays preview cuts from her upcoming big band release, "The Common Thread" with the acclaimed Kenny Hadley Big Band.

KPFK is heard at 90.7 FM From Los Angeles to San Diego, on 98.7 FM in Santa Barbara and streaming worldwide live at The show will also be up as a podcast and online archive for one-week after the show at

Tonight, Amanda will do a rare appearance at "JAZZ at The MERC" in Temecula for the last in her Southern California performance series. This intimate venue is a destination spot for music and art lovers. Each Thursday at 7:30pm listeners are treated to a different jazz group in the intimate space known as "The Merc".

The Mercantile, located at 42051 Main Street, is one of Temecula's original buildings and has been beautifully restored. Amanda is joined by the Bevan Manson Trio. Tickets are $15.
