From Paris France, Warsaw Poland, Houston Texas, Los-Angeles, to Montreal and New York, In an all too rare appearance Tova and MATT reunite for one night only in Toronto.

"Planet Jazz describes Theresa Tova as a "Towering, pan-cultural jazz-cabaret diva "."A classy, jazzy and deliciously sensuous performer” TOVA has gone from the Broadway musical stage to Concert and Jazz venues around the world. “She sings with every part of her being. From her gaze to her hands to her little finger she fills you up and draws you in”.

"A poet at the keyboard, ...a smoldering inner fire impels Matt Herskowitz to flout musical convention, creating a jazz that's as enthusiastic as it is inventive. and "A complete pianist with irreproachable technique, MATT HERSKOWITZ offers such an astonishing reading of repertoire that one forgets that he's playing alone, without orchestra."
