- Hot Summer Nights & Cool Jazz
LSU's Hot Summer Nights and Cool Jazz concert series summer 2012 season is packed with an impressive lineup of guest performances.
The HSN Band kicks off their season on June 14th and 15th with guests Hilary Kole, vocalist and Gene Bertoncini, guitar. This pairing promises to spellbind and delight the audience.
Stephen Holden of the New York Times raves, "Ms. Kole's poised, sultry ballad-singing has always been easy on the ears. But her smooth melodic lines have never been so consistently infused with literary subtext, which spells the difference between sounded pretty, and having something to say."
Mike Joyce of the Jazz Times describes Gene Bertoncini's guitar expertise as "unique and versatile". Joyce also states Gene as being, "a superb stylist on both nylon-string acoustic guitar and amplified archtop. An exemplary solo performer, he has also collaborated with the likes of Buddy Rich, Wayne Shorter, Burt Bacharach, Tony Bennett, Lena Horne and Nancy Wilson".
