The Berkshire Jazz Collective featuring Julia Gottlieb

The Berkshire Jazz Collective will feature Don Mikkelsen (trombone), Benny Kohn (piano), Andy Wrba (bass) and Conor Meehan (drums) for a special night of music supporting Julia Gottlieb at The Barn. Andy Wrba formed the BJC in 2012 stemming from his Monday night residency at Mission in Pittsfield. The group brings a variety of influences and styles that combines for a sound that is captivating and always swinging.

Julia Gottlieb is a jazz singer hailing from the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. Her musical influences range from Bach to Chet Baker to Bob Dylan. She has performed and recorded in both the LA and NYC jazz scenes. Julia is currently living and performing in the Berkshires.

"Julia Gottlieb has the sound and the substance of a talent with star potential. Her coolly insinuating sound calls up the laid-back style of Chris Connors as well as the sexily girlish rhythmic approach of Blossom Dearie. Add to that her own surprisingly mature gift for telling a musical story, whatever the style or genre, and what you've got is something very special, indeed. The only real question about Ms. Gottlieb is why she is still an unsigned artist."
