Beverly Ritz is #Flyah

 


Beverly Ritz is known world-wide as a master of solo piano jazz.  Her music, endorsed by jazz critic Scott Yanow, pianist Jessica Williams, and  jazz d.j. & journalist Al Evans, has been played on NPR stations across the USA.  Three of her CDs have been featured on Jazz Ambience Radio.  Her recording of "Take Five" was included in a tribute to Dave Brubeck on Jazz Inside Out on KLCC in Eugene, Oregon.
Beverly was "house pianist" at Cafe Mundo in Newport, Oregon from March, 2013 to August, 2014.  She created and performed for the Sunday Jazz Brunch and the Wednesday Evening Jazz Jam.  She also gave solo piano jazz concerts at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, Kathy Parsons, and the Newport Performing Arts Center, three renowned concert venues in Oregon. 
Beverly's music has been heard on the radio all over the world since the 2007 release of By Rowdy Creek.  Her 2009 CD, Lacey Mae, set a record with all nine tracks played in nine weeks on Jazz Radio KMHD in Portland, Oregon.  Her 2013 CD, Buddy and Me, in addition to receiving significant airplay on KLCC in Eugene, Oregon, also attracted the attention of Jazz Ambience Radio.  The station put all the tracks from all three of these CDs in rotation. 
Jessica Williams says Beverly's music is wonderful and that she is just so full of talent and passion.  Scott Yanow says Beverly plays chords worthy of Bill Evans and that her sound is reminiscent of McCoy Tyner.  Al Evans says Beverly's 2015 recording of "Threnody" is beautiful.  Doug Anders, d.j. for Jazz Inside Out on KLCC, says Beverly's recording of "Phantom of the Islands" is great.  He also says that Freddie Hubbard must be smiling from above, hearing Beverly's video of "Little Sunflower" recorded with world-class guitarist Phil Mack.
Beverly says she is on a mission to write, record, and perform beautiful piano jazz selections.  She hopes to help the world by creating music that is both intellectually stimulating and soothing. 

Beverly Ritz's fifth CD is Blues for Django, honoring her Golden Retriever named after the legendary jazz guitarist.  The four songs featured here have already received tremendous attention on Facebook, YouTube, and in Beverly's concerts.  The songs have been endorsed by d.j./jazz journalist Al Evans, d.j. Doug Anders, and pianist Jessica Williams. 
The CD includes songs by Marian McPartland, George Cables, Henry Mancini, Richard Rodgers, Johnny Mandel, Jessica Williams, and Beverly Ritz.
With the release of this CD of jazz classics and captivating new jazz and blues, Beverly hopes to perform her solo piano jazz in a wide variety of venues, including jazz clubs and colleges, and in jazz festivals across the USA.

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system.
