It’s a big year for Sinatra – his 100th Birthday and celebration centennials are happening aplenty. But there’s only one treasure with a treasure trove of 42 Sinatra favorites that blow you away! It’s Marilyn Maye ‘Her Way’ at 54 Below. She’ll “Fly You to the Moon” and back because Ms. Maye’s “(I’ve) Got the World on a String” and really has us all under her skin. – or perhaps it’s the other way around!
From Porter to Gershwin, Cahn & Van Heusen, Kander & Ebb and the many other great American Songbook writers, this tribute is overflowing with the savvy style that only Marilyn Maye can bring to a song. It’s “All or Nothing At All” if it comes from marvelous Marilyn!
From jazz waltz to ballad, swing to Broadway, the show is a can-you-top-this minute to minute. And there are all those tidbits of backstage gossip that perk up our ears too.
With her are the creme de la creme of musicians Tedd Firth, pianist/conductor; Tom Hubbard, bass; Jack Cavari, guitar; Eric Halvorson, drums.
