2018 featured collaborations with guitarist Glenn Crytzer and his Orchestra, pianist, Terry Waldo and Barbara’s old friend pianist Conal Fowkes who plays regularly with Woody Allen. Barbara also continued her relationship as vocalist with The Harry James Orchestra. This year brought dates at the much revered club, Mezzrow in Greenwhich Village, and had Barbara performing at the lovely new club BLU Jazz in her home state of Ohio. Gigs have also included Blacktail, The Plaza Hotel, Midday Jazz at St. Peter’s and WBGO Radio in Newark New Jersey where Barbara also showed her collection of Jazz Club Paintings. Barbara also spent time decompressing and painting at an Artist’s Residency at Chateau Orquevaux, in France and found inspiration for both her mediums. In March of 2019 Barbara will have her art opening at Hiromart Gallery entitled “Simple Joys”. She will also have her Abstract Art exhibited at Hotel Vila Flori Lake Como Italy, with a reception in April, 2019. Art and music have come together for Barbara and she is busier than she has ever been. Stay tuned for more performances and painting.
