New York, NY, September 24, 2015– The New York Jazz Workshop proudly presents Jazz duo Ric Frank and Gordon Radford who will be performing at the Lexington Hotel in New York City on Friday, October 2nd, 2015 from 6:00-8:00pm.
At the Lexington Hotel, the musical collaboration of Ric Frank and Gordon Radford will lead you into a dreamy magical Manhattan state of mind: Jazz at Sunset and after dark when the City starts to unwind and their music lifts you onto a cloud of melodies and rhythms. Enjoy such beloved tunes as Autumn Leaves; I Love You; A Child is Born; Willow Weep for Me; plus new favorites. Revel in the expressive piano and horn solos and hear the call and answer of the instruments as they tell you the stories of the songs.
