MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW
My View: Ann Hampton Callaway Spots Her Ex Husband Sitting Ringside

Ann Hampton Callaway has had many of the world’s greatest pianists, arrangers, and music directors accompanying her throughout her celebrated career.  Last night at her show “Jazz Goes To The Movies” sitting on the piano bench at Feinstein’s/54 Below she had the one who started with her at the very beginning.  It was the one who probably knows how to pianistically surround her extraordinary artistry the best and the one who is able to create the harmonies that intertwine most effectively with her prodigious talent.  It was Ann Hampton Callaway playing for herself!  

When the fingers and the voice mesh together coming from the same brain I find it’s the most thrilling way to experience a vocalist, and when the pianist is of the caliber of Ann Hampton Callaway it becomes a unique and amazing happening.  Feinstein’s/54 Below wisely had Michael’s concert sized Steinway brought in for this great show.  The only glitch in the evening was that Ann spotted her ex husband at a ringside table.  He has been known to divert her attention during her performances and if you’ve been to some of her shows you know what I’m talking about.  Her humor is always a great part of any evening with Ann but it is always special when she points him out. He looks so different at every performance but Ann manages to find him.
