\ TO CENTRAL Uptown \
Veteran Roots songwriter Howard Gladstone and singer/pianist Laura Fernandez have been performing together for some time now and Latin-Jazz songwriter and radio show host Fernandez is part of Gladstone’s new trio act (with Tony Quarrington) that we told you a bit about in June.
Fernandez is also involved with sonic connoisseur Gladstone’s new Sonic Peach Music record label specializing in hi-fidelity digital sound recordings, starting with his latest Hourglass disc of stellar originals that we told you about last year on the occasion of its release in October.
Tonight Howard and Laura team up as a duo for a show that is likely to be not quite as finicky technically, as they appear outside in the Artists Garden Co-operative at 345 Balliol St. in the uptown area near Davisville from 7:30 till 9. Cover is $15 but if you don’t already have one you’ll want to pick up a copy of the new disc while you’re there.
