Marilyn is One Hot Jazz Bombshell September 20, 2008

If you’re going to let Marilyn drag you out, don’t count on getting home anytime early and plan on having the time of your life. Marilyn Kleinberg came of age in New York City’s brilliant West Village ’70s jazz scene  and knows exactly where to find what’s left of it. She knows everyone and is an amazing jazz singer herself. Tonight, we went to the Fat Cat, which to me is about as close to a West Village smokey jazz cave as you’ll get these days. You may not have caught her set the other night at Sweet Rhythm, but you can order her CD here or email her at: Prepare to be blown away.
