Feinstein's at Loews Regency, New York, NY
FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed “Best of New York” by New York Magazine, and “an invaluable New York institution” by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the return of platinum-selling singer and songwriter ANN HAMPTON CALLAWAY for two performances only, June 6. In a rare solo performance, the acclaimed vocalist and songwriter will accompany herself on piano as she celebrates the release of her newest CD, “At Last.” The show is at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
For her performance at Feinstein’s, Callaway is returning to her roots with an up close and personal appearance without an orchestra or jazz group.“I have had the privilege to perform with some of the finest symphonies and big bands in the world, but it’s also a great thrill to offer the ultimate of emotional intimacy with just voice and piano. At Last is probably my most honest CD to date so it’s the perfect opportunity to get back to basics and let the music speak for itself."
In an evening of romantic classics as well as well as celebrated original songs, Ann will feature samples from the critically acclaimed CD At Last – recently called one of the “Top 5 Jazz CDs of the Year (So Far)” by NPR – released earlier this year. Selections will include a passionate rendition of the title song proceeded by the rarely heard verse, a smoky swing version of “Comes Love” a searing take on “Over The Rainbow,” as well as the Legrand classic “On My Way To You” which the lyricists Alan and Marilyn Bergman described as “The most beautiful recording of our song...the way we meant it. Exactly.”
