Christine Tobin & Phil Robson have been curating a series of gigs at the Irish Arts Center, NYC. It has been a run of themed jazz shows involving lots of amazing musicians & also incorporating film clips, audio clips & general story telling and they’ve been a great success. The IAC is a wonderful small theater in Hell’s Kitchen. You can read about the series here: http://bit.ly/2jZ5xF8

Hope you can make our first gig that we’ve put on under our own names since arriving in NYC in late 2015. It’s a stellar line up. Please see attached postcard & link below!
Robson is following in the footsteps of ‘The Jazz Baroness’ aka Nica aka Baroness Kathleen Annie Pannonica de Koenigswarter (née Rothschild). He has settled in Weehawken, NJ with partner Christine Tobin, having recently decided to make NYC & the USA his current base. Weehawken is a township of Hudson County & is a mere ten minutes away from 42nd St, Port Authority, NYC. Pannonica was a great patron of jazz & jazz musicians, particularly of Thelonious Monk. Living so close to Nica’s former house (also known as ‘Catsville’ & currently inhabited by the great Barry Harris) has certainly been an inspiration to Robson & he has enjoyed reading the book on the subject by Hanna Rothschild. UK connections continue of course & Phil will be making appearances in the UK from time to time over the next few months. Please see ‘live dates’ for details.
