$20 (includes 1 beer or wine selection)

The Boiler House Jazz Series at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation continues its series of duo concerts with vocalist and tap dancer Jenny Herzog and bassist Jim Guttmann in a concert of original songs, jazz standards, and bossa novas.

Jenny Herzog is a classically trained, jazz-loving tap dancer, vocalist, and improvisational musician based in Boston. She grew up on the Great American Songbook, musical theater, Thelonious Monk, and the Nicholas Brothers. Her belief is that the voice and body are intertwined; voice informs body informs voice. Improvisation is an essential ingredient to who she is and what she does.

From smoky dives to Carnegie Hall, Jim Guttmann’s career spans 40 years and many musical idioms. As a founding member of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, he has toured the world and has performed & recorded with Itzhak Perlman and Joel Grey. In 2010 he released his first album as a leader, “Bessarabian Breakdown” a culmination of his experience to date, playing traditional klezmer music with small and large ensembles, and creating fusions of klezmer with traditional Afro-Cuban guajira and guaguanco, a nod to Tower of Power and calypso, a swinging jazz trio and a brief hip hop interlude.
