Rebecca Parris to Perform at Danny's Skylight Room

	Boston chanteuse, Rebecca Parris, will perform at Danny's Skylight Room in New York on Saturday, February 7, for two shows at 9:15 and 11 pm.  Called "the Etta James of jazz," Ms. Parris has shared the stage with Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Wynton Marsalis, Carol Sloane and Dizzy Gillespie, among many other jazz luminaries.  Gifted with a formidably rich voice, Rebecca Parris has the ability to engage audiences with her passionate vocals, witty humor and wealth of musical knowledge of songs, composers and performers.
	In the intimate, accessible cabaret setting of Danny's Skylight Room, Rebecca will perform selections from her wide-ranging jazz and cabaret repertoire (recently opening for Shelly Berman in Boston), accompanied by pianist, Brad Hatfield, and her celebrated sense of humor.  A Boston-area native and consistent winner of New England jazz awards, Rebecca is known for approaching a song head-on and creating a generous feeling of bonhomie for her audience.  Her style has been called "warm and vibrant" by Joe Williams, "confident and flawless" by Leonard Feather, and her voice "a mood that transcends the ordinary, that in one moment exudes warmth and is poignant, in another driving hard and swinging," by Shirley Horn.
	Showtimes on Saturday, February 7, are 9:15 and 11 pm.  Tickets are $15.  Danny's Skylight Room is located at 346-348 W. 46th Street in New York.  For reservations, call 212-265-8130.
