Singer Deborah Davis Organizes Leukemia/Lymphoma Benefit Concert

Starting the year with a good deed, vocalist/poet Deborah Davis (pictured left) will perform a benefit concert for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at the Blue Note in New York City on New Year’s Day. The charity is close to Davis’ heart; her father died of Leukemia 20 years ago.

Over the years Davis has played with a number of recognized artists like Art Blakey, Clark Terry, Lionel Hampton and Freddie Hubbard. Joining her on stage Jan. 1 to play a selection of jazz standards, some familiar, some obscure, will be pianist Anthony Wonsey, bassist Trion Curtis Lundy and drummer Alvin Atkinson.

Davis will play two shows, one at 8 p.m., one at 10:30 p.m. The $10 cover will benefit the charity. To make reservations for this benefit event, call 212-475-8592. The Blue Note is located at 131 W. 3rd St.
