My View: Don’t Tell This To Michael Feinstein

My View: Don’t Tell This To Michael Feinstein

Jazz at Lincoln Center can charge as much as they want for his “The Great Jazz Standards” with Tedd Firth Big Band, Marilyn Maye, Freda Payne Vuyo Sotashe and Veronica Swift and it would be worth the price of the ticket. Most times, to hear Pop/Jazz you’re in a New York City Cabaret. Piano, Bass, and drums, a cover charge and a minimum. Last night at The Appel Room we listened to 17 musicians, 4 vocalists, Michael singing/hosting, and an extraordinary display of musicianship in a perfect acoustical environment. Even a tone deaf accountant can figure that it comes to $3.40 per performer to hear some of the best jazz interpretations of the American Songbook available in any venue. If you have some spare change try to get a ticket for this series. Here’s a short video clip of some of those sounds last night.
