MY VIEW: One Of The Most Necessary Artists For You To Know Debuted Eight Unnecessary Songs at Feinstein’s/54 Below Last Night

I don’t use the word “genius” too often but if anyone deserves that designation it’s Susan Werner.  If you don’t know her by now you’ve somehow managed to overlook one of the most creative and talented performers around.  She’s a brilliant composer, lyricist, singer, pianist, guitarist, humorist and probably a bunch of other things I’m not aware of.  When someone on the music landscape can produce a unique combination of melody, rhythm, and harmony, connected with extremely profound and witty lyrics it’s genius to me.  Add to that Susan’s technical proficiency on many instruments, her beautiful well trained vocal chords, and very hip stage conversations, you get a one of a kind concert or cabaret performance.  Susan Werner is extremely necessary in a world of many unnecessary things. Her performance at Feinsten’s/54 Below last night, which featured some of the songs from her Broadway bound Bull Durham score plus other Werner originals was a masterpiece.  Cheering her on at our table was another Chicagoan Christine Ebersole and husband Bill.  BTW- Eight Unnecessary Songs is the title of her new album, it’s fantastic and that’s no Bull!
