Jazz at Lincoln Center - The Allen Room
New York, NY
Wed, June 6, 2012
American popular song and jazz are not only interrelated, but are actually two sides of the same coin. In the second annual presentation of Sweet & Low Down: How Popular Standards Became Jazz Classics, Director Michael Feinstein is joined by 2012 Tony Award-nominated actress Jessie Mueller (On a Clear Day You Can See Forever) and pianist/vocalist Loston Harris. The three singers explore the unique relationship and common roots between the two seemingly unrelated musical worlds. The show will present classic songs from two viewpoints: as they were originally conceived for Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley, and then as they were re-invented by jazz performers to become classics in the jazz repertoire.
