My View: Streisand And Nancy Wilson at Feinstein’s/54Below Last Night!

Two different shows on 54th street last night brought lovers of cabaret out to fill the seats at Feinstein’s/54 Below.  First up, Marieann Meringolo. She’s not Barbra, but you got the same chills and goose bumps as Marieann’s glorious voice sang the songs of Alan & Marilyn Bergman in a Will Nunziata directed show.  Her musical director and pianist Doyle Newmyer created some gorgeous arrangements to effectively recreate the Streisand sound.  As another Stephen said (Holden – NY Times) “Ms. Meringolo, a singer who bares some physical and vocal resemblance to Barbra Streisand…is not shy about emoting in grand style. She also has a sense of humor that comes into play at appropriate moments.”

The thrills continued as Nicole Henry, probably one of the most exciting vocalists who have ever appeared at Feinstein’s brought the music of Nancy Wilson to the packed room of jazz lovers.  When Nicole is on stage there’s nothing else to look at, even though she had a killer 5 piece band.  The New York Times also had something to say about Ms Henry. They noted that “Nicole is a pop, soul superwoman” The two very different shows created a fantastic night of historic music by great singers who just happened to be appearing on the same night.
