The razor-sharp wit of famed stand-up Paula Poundstone will be on full display, as she slices and dices her way through an evening of keen cultural commentary. Famed for a quick mind that always manages to come up with the perfect quip, Poundstone is a master of riffing off the crowd. It's also why she's the perfect panelist for NPR's Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!, where she's featured alongside some of the nation's leading pundits. She broke through in 1990 with her acclaimed HBO special Cats, Cops and Stuff, and was both the first woman to be invited to perform at the White House Correspondents' dinner and the first woman to win a CableACE Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. Still knocking them dead as a headliner, Poundstone released her latest comedy disc, I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston, in April 2013, and has recently toured as part of the A Prairie Home Companion live show.

Wonderful music that we haven't heard in such a long time. Really brings back memories. Very enjoyable show. Thank you Goldstar for the great seats! This theatre doesn't seem to have a bad seat in the house! Comfortable chairs and enough room for people to squeeze by.
Quotes & Highlights
- Hear Herb Alpert and Lani Hall at the Tijuana Brass website.
Concord Jazz is proud to announce the release of I Feel You, the new album from music legend Herb Alpert and Grammy Award-winning singer Lani Hall. I Feel You is a thrilling collaboration that blends Alpert and Hall’s vocal and instrumental gifts to perfection. The songs cover several reinterpreted classics spanning four decades. Recorded in Los Angeles, it is the duo’s first studio album in almost ten years and will be available February 8, 2011.
Alpert and Hall are scheduled to tour several venues in support of the release with additional dates to be confirmed in the new year. They will be accompanied by the versatile band who worked on I Feel You which includes Michael Shapiro (drums), Bill Cantos (keyboards) and Hussain Jiffry (bass). I Feel You was co-produced by Alpert and Hall along with the band members.
The songs they selected include such classics as Van Morrison’s “Moondance” and Peggy Lee’s “Fever,” as well as two Beatles tunes: “Here Comes The Sun” and “Blackbird.” All the songs on I Feel You are filled with unique and innovative arrangements along with skilled improvisations which breathe fresh life into them. Also on the CD is a reinvented version of the Tijuana Brass hit, “What Now My Love.”
“Each song is like a flower opening up, exposing new color and fragrance, strength and fragility,” commented Hall. “I think the key to a great song is always the melody and Lani thinks it’s an equally expressive lyric, which is one of the reasons we’re a good team. The songs on I Feel You reflect honesty and our mutual commitment to all the songs we do together is to make them sound fresh,” added Alpert.
The outcome of their complementary philosophy is 14 songs on I Feel You that marry the essence of their shared gifts.
