Vocalist Anna Mjoll will be accompanied by Tom Ranier on piano, Chuck Berghofer on bass, and Ray Brinker on drums.

Jazz singer Anna Mjoll, native of Iceland, has performed with Julio Iglesias and co-wrote and performed three songs with CJ Vanston in the film “For Your Consideration”. Anna has recorded two C.D.’s, “The Shadow of Your Smile” and “Christmas Jazz Mazz”. Anna’s sweet voice is light and jazzy, and her stage presence brings out a humorous touch as she likes to interact in dialogue with her audience. Her style is quite distinct and highly personal, and all her own. Mjoll’s appeal and melodic style evokes resemblances to Peggy Lee, Astrud Gilberto, Julie London, Blossom Dearie, and Madeline Peyroux. Anna interprets the Great American Song Book with the best of todays’ jazz singers in a very entertaining live performance.

Multi-instrumentalist Tom Ranier has played piano and multiple woodwinds as  a leader and sideman on over 150 recordings since the mid 1970’s. Tom has four recordings as a leader and has been prominent in film, TV, and the music recording industry for over 40 years. Ranier has played and written music for the Grammy, Academy, Emmy, and Golden Globe shows. Tom has won awards for artists that include Barbara Streisand, Michael Finestein, Christina Aguilera, Joe Pass, Placido Domingo, Barry Manilow, Natalie Cole, and others. Tom’s style as a pianist and jazz artist mixes Bud Powell’s complexity, Oscar Peterson’s ardent swing, and Bill Evans exploratory harmonies. Ranier lists Benny Goodman and Charlie Parker as his main influences. Tom has played with 100’s of great music artists, and enjoys projecting his thoughts and feelings deep from within when improvising in live performances. Ranier has done studio work for many TV and movie soundtracks, and has worked extensively for Disney and CBS. Tom takes pride and enjoys studio work that he feels keep him fresh and a better musician because different projects and composers broaden his scope. Ranier has taught jazz composition at Fullerton College and has contributed to several successful school recordings. Tom has taught in the jazz program at UCLA under guitarist Kenny Burrell. Ranier has authored a jazz education book titled “Piano in the Rhythm Section”.

Bassist Chuck Berghofer has a distinguished career as a jazz player, studio musician, and work in TV and films. He is known for his huge rich tone, and sense of relaxed power on the bass. Chuck has worked at the famous Shelly’s Manne Hole, and Donte’s Jazz Club as a house musician for many years. Berghofer’s bass influences include Leroy Vinegar, Paul Chambers, Ray Brown, Scott Lafaro, and Red Mitchell. Chuck has played with the Skinny Ennis Orchestra, Bobby Troup, Pete Jolly’s Trio, and most of the best west coast jazz players since the 1960’s. He has worked with names like Zoot Sims, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Stan Getz, Peggy Lee, Gerry Mulligan, Art Pepper, The Everly Brothers, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughn, Merle Haggard, Glenn Campbell, Seth McFarland, and a long list of others. Chuck has worked on over 400 film soundtracks, and won the National Academy of Recording Art & Sciences Award as the Most Valuable Bass Player 4 years in a row.

Drummer Ray Brinker, graduate of North Texas State University, and a member of the 1 o’clock Jazz Lab Band, Ray started out with the Maynard Ferguson Band. Brinker’s longest stint is playing for over 20 years with the Tierney Sutton Band, for whom he has co-arranged and recorded 9 CD’s. The band has been nominated 4 years in a row for a Grammy as Best Jazz Vocal Album. Brinker has performed or recorded with over 40 diverse jazz and music greats, and has played on a dozen TV/film soundtracks.

Price: Kr. 2500

ANNA MJÖLL grew up in one of her country's leading musical families, eventually representing Iceland in the famed Eurovision Song Contest. She then joined the band of Julio Iglesias, touring worldwide before setting out on her own career as a jazz singer and songwriter. Mjöll has quietly built a following around L.A. over the past two years, becoming one of the only vocalists to be a regular at the classy Vibrato supper club. Mjöll's striking beauty and often-breathtaking dresses combine with singing talent that's recently drawn praise from jazz luminaries including George Duke, Don Heckman and Dave Weckl. Add Mjöll's penchant for offbeat humor and a running dialogue with the audience, and you might find yourself wondering how long it'll be before she's headlining somewhere in Las Vegas — Sir Tom Jones is already a frequent guest at her shows in town."
-Tom Meek, LA Weekly

LUCA ELLIS built his foundation as a crooner in the lounges of fine dining chop houses and mansions for Hollywood’s elite. Mr. Ellis has worked with master pianist Llew Matthews (Nancy Wilson), monster pianist Michael Thompson (The Eagles), and guitarist Jim Fox (Frank Sinatra Jr.). Luca has performed with the Gene White Orchestra at the Las Vegas Hilton and played Frank Sinatra in Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show at the Sahara in Las Vegas under the Musical Direction of Joey Singer (Debbie Reynolds). His recording credits include You Can’t Help Who You Love for songwriter Diane Warren. Luca performed the role of Frank Sinatra in the hit musical Louis & Keely, Live at the Sahara: A Vegas Holiday. Most recently Luca sang with the Les Brown Band of Renown for the 25th Anniversary Fundraising Gala for the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center. In the 100 Year Anniversary celebraHon of the Beverly Hills Hotel, where, as it happens, Mr. Ellis can be heard every week at Bar Nineteen 12.

The American Jazz Institute's Jazz Supper Club Series with Anna Mjoll at Vicky’s of Santa Fe in Indian Wells

Event Date/Time

Feb 27, 2012
5:30 pm until 9:30 pm

Description

 

The American Jazz Institute's Jazz Supper Club Series with Anna Mjoll at Vicky’s of Santa Fe in Indian Wells

Vicky’s of Santa Fe in Indian Wells is the locale for the most exciting jazz series in the Desert presenting 6 Jazz Programs by The American Jazz Institute, proceeds of which benefit The American Jazz Institute’s in-school mentoring and music scholarship program in the Coachella Valley.

These unique Supper Concerts headline international jazz personalities exclusively at Vicky’s, some of whom have never before appeared in the Coachella Valley. This season features celebrity performers, both instrumentalists and vocalists, as well as tributes to famous songwriters and the musicians who record and perform their songs, all in an intimate and elegant setting.

Third in the Series, Icelandic jazz diva Anna Mjoll evokes Peggy Lee, Astrud Gilberto and especially Blossom Dearie, but fascinates with her highly personal interpretations. She knows how to caress a melody and seduce the listener. Mjoll seems very comfortable on stage, comfortable in her own skin and very comfortable with her inimitable delivery of her material. She has a barely detectable accent, but it does make her sound just a little different from everyone else, in a charming way.

It all starts at 5:30PM in the Supper Club Lounge with no-host cocktails, followed by a specially planned 3-Course dinner and show. Cost includes all tax, tip, dinner and entertainment. To view dinner menu visit www.vickysofsantafe.com Pre-Paid reservations only. 760-345-9770.

Cost $75 per person

-------------------------------------------------

"Sunday night, Santa Monica. Last Sunday night I was having a really good time, sitting in the Baked Potato, halfway between Hollywood and the Valley, and listening to jazz singer Anna Mjoll perform with her really good band. I wish I could be doing the same thing tonight, but it’s a much longer drive to her gig. She’s playing in Reykjavik. Yeah, Iceland. She’s closer to the ocean there... than she was in the Valley. But she’s a lot closer to the Arctic Circle too.

Why in the world would a jazz singer book herself into a small club in an island nation with one fifth the population of the San Fernando Valley?

Because she’s home for the holidays.

Anna Mjoll is not much of what you usually picture as a jazz singer. Few of her performance photos show her in a dress. More likely you’ll get what I saw at the Potato: strategically very torn jeans, punkish spiked bracelets, stylish “armlet” tattoo, leather half-vest and a thin leather headband holding in place her long golden (really, really golden) locks, white-toed black tennies (but no candy cane-striped knee socks this time), and centerfold-class beauty and figure. Her idea of patter is to regale you with odd and gory anecdotes (decapitation, burger breath). I wonder if she dresses up a little at home? Keeps the stories a little more conventional, with mom and dad in the crowd?

Probably not.

Mjoll seems very comfortable on stage, like she was born there (almost true), comfortable in her own skin and very comfortable with her material and her inimitable delivery of it. She has a barely detectable accent, but it does make her sound just a little different from everyone else, in a charming way.

I was somewhat disappointed in her show last Sunday in that I had come for what was billed as her “Christmas Jazzmaz” show, named after her just-released CD of Christmas songs, but she was mostly ignoring that by the time I came in for the late show, and I heard only two holiday numbers, “Jingle Bells” and “Sleigh Ride,” the latter with a verse in her native tongue thrown in, as on the album. I’ve got to admit: I love hearing jazz standards or even Christmas songs sung in Icelandic. You really should try it.

Her band was absolutely stellar. She always seems to attract really good players. (“Jazzmaz” features an enviable cast in Vinnie Colaiuta, Don Grusin, Luis Conte, Charlie Bisharat, and the late and very missed Dave Carpenter, as well as Mjoll’s talented father Olafur Gaukur producing, arranging and on guitar.) At the Spud she had Mike Miller on guitar, John Gilutin on keys, Ian Martin on bass and Gerry Brown on drums, impressive chops-meisters and cookin’ this night. A real treat was provided when Reggie Hamilton sat in for a few on bass, even though he had literally just flown in from Europe and went straight to the club. His solo excursions alone were worth the price of admission.

Her show was very similar to the excellent one I saw a few weeks earlier at Charlie O’s, including the stories, but it nagged at me that there was some missing piece this night. Then she gets to the very last number, “Blue Skies” (except for an ill-advised bowing to a persistent request for “Route 66” – ya gotta end high and leave ‘em wanting more). She goes to town with energized scatting throughout, and it jumps out that this was the one, where Anna Mjoll was in her element and shining. She had done some scatting in previous numbers, but not much, not as much as at Charlie O’s. I don’t think it was just the scatting that made the difference, but it was definitely tied to that.

**********************
You don’t listen to Christmas music for weeks before the day now, do you? The last week before Christmas is prime time for me, enough to get the spirit but not to OD. So the timing is perfect to download Anna Mjoll’s “Christmas Jazzmaz,” at CDBaby.com. I like the last four songs the best because they’re sung in Icelandic, and the “Santa Baby” is probably the sexiest and most fun version you’ll ever hear."

She had done some scatting in previous numbers, but not much, not as much as at Charlie O’s. I don’t think it was just the scatting that made the difference, but it was definitely tied to that.

**********************
You don’t listen to Christmas music for weeks before the day now, do you? The last week before Christmas is prime time for me, enough to get the spirit but not to OD. So the timing is perfect to download Anna Mjoll’s “Christmas Jazzmaz,” at CDBaby.com. I like the last four songs the best because they’re sung in Icelandic, and the “Santa Baby” is probably the sexiest and most fun version you’ll ever hear."
