Ol’ Blues Eye and bossa nova: Music has always been a family affair for the irresistibly swinging guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli, who came up playing with his father, 91-year-old jazz guitar great Bucky Pizzarelli, and his brother, bassist Martin Pizzarelli. A series of Bay Area dates mark the release of Pizzarelli’s beautiful new album “Sinatra & Jobim @ 50,” a project paying tribute to the classic 1967 encounter between American popular song’s nonpareil interpreter and Brazil’s greatest songwriter. He’s joined by a stellar six-piece band that features his wife, the great singer Jessica Molaskey (who just released an impressive album of songs by Joni Mitchell), and their daughter Maddie Pizzarelli on backup vocals and guitar. Details: 8 p.m. Aug. 24 and 8 and 10 p.m. Aug. 25 at Yoshi’s, Oakland; $29-$69; 510-238-9200, www.yoshis.com; 7 p.m. Aug. 27 at Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Santa Cruz; $32-$37; 831-427-2227, www.kuumbwajazz.org.— Andrew Gilbert, Corresponden.
“Kestrals can see a small mouse on the ground from a mile up in the air,” said Shannon, “They can also dive down at 75 mph.”, She asked the children what a kestral would use as a knife and fork, The answer: “Its feet and talons are its fork, and it uses its beak like a knife to rip and cut food into small pieces, They don’t have teeth like us, so they have to cut their food up small or they’d choke on it.”, Next up was red suede leather ballet flats ballerinas ballerina's ballerina pumps ballerina flats ballerina shoes ballet slippers ballet George, a tamandua anteater normally found in the tropical rain forest, Shannon pointed out George’s tongue is 17 inches long — so much the better to reach down into ant hills — and is sticky like Velcro..
As the central couple, Maria Kotchetkova and Joseph Walsh brought an apt spirit of fun to their dancing and nailed the syncopated rhythms of Stravinsky’s moody “Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra” (1929). Sofiane Sylve — as a kind of Amazon queen, replete with tiny crown — projected the necessary hauteur but was still finding her way around the role’s contours, particularly Balanchine’s devious burlesque sense. Pianist Roy Bogas conjured up Stravinsky’s gorgeous rumblings with his usual elegance.
Alas, there’s also zero chemistry between the leads here and red suede leather ballet flats ballerinas ballerina's ballerina pumps ballerina flats ballerina shoes ballet slippers ballet without that, you are left to ponder the shortcomings in the interminable script (book by Alexander Dinelaris) and spotty characterizations, Mills, for one, tries to flesh out Frank’s inner life by simply pausing a lot when he delivers his lines, Ouch, Cox has a sassy air about her befitting a celebrity but there’s no depth to her performance, She never radiates love or lust or fear or any of the other emotions that Rachel might be feeling, She also doesn’t have enough sheer star quality to save the show from itself..
