Patelson Music House presented another great, live Open House event, a CD Showcase. Tonight’s duo guitarists, Howard Alden and Gene Bertoncini, performed for guests, who sipped wine from 67 Wine & Spirits and munched on cheese from Morton Williams Supermarket on West 57th Street. This event was very well attended and enthusiastically received. Howard and Gene played Brazilian, Swing, Ballads, and music from the film, Sweet and Lowdown, on which Howard collaborated with Woody Allen and for which Howard tutored Sean Penn on guitar. They played in duo and solo format and told stories to the captivated crowd. Guests browsed the Patelson sheet music collection and eclectic gift shelves.

The program's songs included: Duo: "Strollin'", by Horace Silver, "Li'l Darlin'", by Neal Hefti, "Dream Dancing", by Cole Porter, "Corcovado", by Antonio Carlos Jobim, "These Foolish Things", by Hope Marvell/Jack Sprachey, "Out Of Nowhere", by Edward Heyman and Johnny Green, "I Remember You", by Johnny Mercer/Victor Schertzinger, and "The Shadow of Your Smile", by Johnny Mandel. Gene Solo: A medley of "But Beautiful", by Johnny Burke/Jimmy Van Heusen, "So In Love", by Cole Porter, and "The More I See You", by Harry Warren. Howard Solo: Medley from "Sweet and Lowdown": "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles", by Kenbrovin/Kellette, "I'll See You In My Dreams", by Gus Kahn/Isham Jones, and "Tango El Bongo", by George Van Eps. The mood was warm, inviting, and mellow. This was music to be transported by, and the Patelson Music House Staff loved it, as did the large number of guests, in spite of the cold, rainy evening. Howard and Gene signed CD's and DVD's which the guests purchased with enthusiasm. The event was videotaped by Michael Lee Stever. You can find future CD Showcase Events on the Upcoming Events Column.
