Join Maggie Surovell and Russ Kaplan in a tribute to the song-writing talents of one of America’s great comedians, Jonathan Katz, co-creator and star of the Emmy and Peabody award-winning series Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.”

Before “Dr. Katz,” there was “Katz and Jammers,” a rock-comedy group led by Jonathan, who described himself as a “White Paul Simon.”  Later, Jonathan went solo, billing himself as a “Stand-up Musician.”  You’re going to enjoy his songs, an eclectic mix of rock, poignant ballads, bosa nova, blues and country rock, performed by two exciting young artists.

Maggie Surovell and Russ Kaplan have arranged Jonathan’s music in a simple, elegant, yet powerful format — with a touch of humor and lots of passion — that will make you want to hear more and more.
