Christiana Drapkin & Mike Gellar Quartet

Christiana Drapkin - Mike Gellar Jazz Quartet, with Tommy Cecil on bass, and Anita Thomas on sax & clarinet.

Vocalist Christiana Drapkin and guitarist Mike Gellar join up with their friends again for another lively evening of swinging Jazz Standards, Scat & Bebop lines, romantic Ballads, and their favorite Ballads with a special nod to the Great American Song Book.

Jazz vocalist Christiana Drapkin has been performing in New York and on the East Coast for over twenty years. She now makes her home in the Washington, DC area, but keeps coming back for gigs in the Big Apple. She is noted for her lyrical and highly personal delivery of ballads and for her abandoned yet artful scat improvisations. Christiana's singing is deeply immersed in the rich traditions of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Carmen McRae, as well as in the vocalese fireworks of Anita O'Day, Annie Ross and Eddie Jefferson. With her focus on Jazz Standards, she highlights improvisation and harmonic development, carrying on and developing the tradition of Bebop and musicians like Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Thelonious Monk, Lennie Tristano and Dizzy Gillespie.
