JOYCE YUILLE & MICHAEL ROSEN



MICHAEL ROSEN 'SICILIAN STYLE'
One incomparable voice; one spellbinding saxophone; two outstanding performers in no need of an introduction. Joyce Yuille and Michael Rosen, both native New Yorkers are a force to be reckoned with on stage. The duo have teamed up with a superb group of musicians for this newest musical journey, bringing to the stage a show highly influenced by “Black Music”. Together, they have selected a winning group of songs tinged with Jazz, Soul, Blues and Funk, arranged to compliment Joyce’s forceful, determined yet sophisticated vocal style. Allied with three incredibly grooving musicians, each acclaimed in his own right, this union is guaranteed to deeply touch the souls of anyone who has the chance to enjoy this performance.
