Manilow’s pianist plays The Prizery on Saturday

Now that he’s finished the Christmas album with Barry Manilow and played at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, Matt Herskowitz, center, is free to appear at The Prizery. Enjoy traditional jazz standards, some jazzed-up Christmas tunes and some original compositions when the Matt Herskowitz Trio plays The Prizery this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call (434) 572-8339 or visit http://www.prizery.com
It’s been hard to miss superstar Barry Manilow all over TV plugging his album “In the Swing of Christmas.” And, obviously, if you’re Barry Manilow, you can have any pianist in the world. And he chose Matt Herskowitz – the same Matt Herskowitz coming to the intimacy of The Prizery’s Chastain Theatre this Saturday evening.
