LINDA KOSUT & THE MIKE GREENSILL TRIO
“EASY COME, EASY GO: the music of Johnny Green”

FRIDAY, JANUARY 17 & SATURDAY, JANUARY 18
SOCIETY CABARET AT THE HOTEL REX, SAN FRANCISCO

SAN FRANCISCO, CA. Bistro Award-winning jazz/cabaret vocalist LINDA KOSUT presents a program of songs & stories of composer Johnny Green to San Francisco’s newest venue, SOCIETY CABARET at the Hotel Rex in Union Square. 563 Sutter Street. SHOWS are on Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18 at 8:00pm. TICKETS: 415.857.1896 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.

Johnny Green was a prolific composer, 5-time Oscar winner for scoring of a musical picture, MGM Orchestra Leader & Arranger, and much more. His masterful composition, "BODY AND SOUL" continues to celebrate its #1 position on the Jazz Standards Charts 83 years after its first airplay.

Along with the MIKE GREENSILL TRIO (Greensill, musical director/piano; Tom Shader, bass; Alan Hall, drums), Linda brings an exciting and current perspective to Green’s songs, written mostly in the 30s & 40s.

“Kosut’s intention is to keep Green’s music alive and she does it in a way that is fresh and contemporary. Green deserves recognition [and] Kosut does more than justice to the material, {She] enhances it with her effervescence and charm.” –Cabaret Scenes Magazine

Linda Kosut, New York born and San Francisco-based, is a singer whose warm lush sound, interpretive lyric skills and intelligent humor brings her signature style to music old and new, while mastering a broad range of genres from jazz to folk to pop. Her CD tribute to Oscar Brown Jr., “Long As You’re Living”, garnered Backstage Magazine’s Bistro/BMI Award for Outstanding Recording.
