Arts & Entertainment Watch: "Jazz You Like It"

Doris Long brings something fresh to the table with an eclectic menu of jazz favorites from the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's. Last Friday at the Waterbury Coach House, I had the pleasure of catching a few sets over a couple of glasses of pinot noir with my husband and a couple of friends.

Ms. Long has been entertaining in the Cleveland area for over 40 years, singing with the likes of Dan Zola's Band, Harry Hershey's Big Band and the Joe Hunter Trio, to name of few. This evening she was backed up by keyboardist, Neil Kamiller, guitarist, Jim Dufalla, and drummers, Bob Miller and Bob Bertalan.

The sets were surprisingly long and offered sultry and soulful yet sophisticated ambiance- not to loud not too soft- with slightly dimmer lights it would be absolutely perfect date-night atmosphere. Ms. Long's voice is lovely as is the song selection - lots of jazz and swing standards to savor.

Hoss Ashofteh, the proprietor, is a gracious and charming host. In talking with him, we found out that he sometimes deviates from his already diverse menu, upon the guest's request and 'what's in the kitchen'.

"Jazz You Like It" at the Waterbury Coach House, 13333 Madison Avenue, on Fridays from 7:30pm-10:30pm should be on everyone's list to experience at least once.
