Havana Carbo @ Saint Peter's Church, NY, this afternoon, Dec 30

Join us today for JAZZ VESPERS at Saint Peter's Church
54th & Lexington Avenue
Sunday, December 30 - 5pm
This afternoon, sublime singer Havana Carbo will be performing songs from her impeccable new album, "Through a a dream", backed by Cliff Korman (piano), Sean Smith (bass) and Vince Cherico (drums). I hope the setlist will include "Nuages", "Pecado", "Dream Waltz", "Solamente Una Vez". "Invitation" and "La Puerta", among other gems from Carbo's repertoire.

"The Jazz Ministry at Saint Peter's Church was founded in 1965 by the late Reverend John Garcia Gensel who developed its most important form of worship: Jazz Vespers ... featuring a wide range of jazz styles and musicians ... held each Sunday at 5:00 PM. Jazz Vespers is a Worship Service in jazz featuring famous jazz artists"
