Real Audio Version

MP3 Version

"There are always interesting things hiding in the city's cultural corners.  

Here are two. 

The first is called "Two" and it's new CD featuring local singer, Joannie Pallatto, teamed with the exciting local pianist Marshall Vente.

The 18 song selections are wonderfully eclectic, from "As Time Goes By" to the Kurt Weill/Ira Gershwin tune "My Ship" to the Doors' "Light My Fire."

The performances are dazzling."

-Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune

"... Vente is a strong pianist who can do both solid accompaniment and produce eye opening solos.  Joanie Pallatto has produced her best session so far and Marshall Vente sounds like someone to watch out for." 

-Jerome Wilson, Cadence review of "Two"
