2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Woody Allen’s musical perfomance career. He began in 1973 playing Michael’s Pub. Allen and Eddy Davis started a new band and began performing at the Carlyle in the late 90s, and more weeks than not, they have performed on Mondays ever since.
Jazz, of course, plays a big part in Allen’s films. Most famously, when he didn’t attend the 1978 Academy Awards (when Annie Hall was nominated), his reason was he had a show to play. Allen’s love of Jazz was explored in the documentary Wild Man Blues.
The Monday Night Carlyle shows usually sell out, so get in fast.
Why until June 17th? Perhaps that is when we will see the release of Woody Allen’s 2013 film.
