About the Album

"You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!" is the title track from pianist/composer Leslie Pintchik's new album featuring Pintchik with Steve Wilson (alto saxophone), Ron Horton (trumpet and flugelhorn), Shoko Nagai (accordion), Scott Hardy (bass and guitar), Michael Sarin (drums), and Satoshi Takeishi (percussion). Pintchik found the album title in one of those "only in New York" moments. While crossing Canal Street at West Broadway in the SoHo section of Manhattan, she heard a voice behind her yell, "You eat my food, you drink my wine, you steal my girl!" It was a perfect fit for the sharp-elbows vibe of her new tune, with its samba-funk groove, understated humor and fender-bender of an ending. So with one gruff shout, serendipity handed her a bold, spunky title, for a bold, spunky tune.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
