Join Michael Lington this Sunday, 11/11, at Santa Monica's favorite smooth jazz restaurant, i Cugini, for a special autograph signing in celebration of Lington’s latest album, A SONG FOR YOU, from 11am - 1pm at 94.7 The WAVE's Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch! On A Song For You, Denmark-born Lington has mastered the iconic American contemporary and pop songs of the 70’s, layering each track with distinctive sensual and emotional gradations.
I Cugini is known for serving the finest Italian seafood cuisine in Southern California where the daily menu is not determined until the catch of the day is brought to the kitchen. It’s the perfect place to end or begin your week where you can see the relaxing sights and hear the calming sounds of crashing waves ebb and flow over the sandy Santa Monica shoreline. The elegant décor includes vaulted ceilings, parquet wood floors, terrazzo marble countertops, huge murals, and massive columns, reminiscent of an Italian seaside patio. Reservations are suggested.
Then, on Wednesday, 11/14, Lington and his band will perform at 7pm for The WAVE's Wednesday Jazz Series at BB King’s Jazz & Blues Club at Universal CityWalk in Universal City. BB King’s intimate, cocoon-like setting is the perfect venue to experience Lington’s rich, full-bodied, sax-voice that is both exhilarating and passionate, making his live performances a sumptuous indulgence. Call ahead to guarantee your reservation for this incredible evening!
