We are so lucky to have so many wonderful venues in Philadelphia where you can hear fantastic live jazz music on any given evening. South and Time are a couple of our favorites. Well, you can add one more to the list, the Rittenhouse Hotel. On weekend nights they have a different jazz ensemble preforming outside their wonderful Library Bar located on the first floor of the hotel. We’ve been to a few of their jazz nights, but there is one person in particular that we make a point to go see and support whenever she is in town. Her name is Sharon Sable and you need to go hear her next time she is in your area.
Sharon has a voice that will mesmerize you the moment you hear her. She actually started out more in pop music culture before focusing on jazz. It was a period of learning and growth for her, a time which she has no regrets. Sometimes we all need to experiment and branch out before we find our true path. Sharon certainly found it with jazz music.
Jazz nights at the Rittenhouse are so relaxing and so much fun to attend. There is a smattering of comfy chairs and tables outside the Library Bar that you can claim for your own, settle in, and listen to great music. The service, food and drinks at the Rittenhouse are second to none. The attention to detail here is impeccable. It’s no wonder why the hotel is ranked tops in Philadelphia year after year.
We were so happy to catch up with Sharon this evening. She had already started her set when we arrived but made a point to come over and greet us the we arrived. She is an amazing artist. Her voice just soothes and relaxes you. She sings all the classics and will do any requests. We are so lucky to know her and consider her a close friend of ours.
Let me put it this way. If you had a stressful week at work and need to unwind, check out jazz nights at the Rittenhouse Hotel. And please be sure to check out our good friend Sharon Sable. She will be back at the Rittenhouse on October 27th. I promise you, if you go, you will have good food, good cocktails and great jazz music, thanks to Sharon!
