ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Written specifically for Andrea Marcovicci and her show of the same name.

Reviews of the live performance of the song:

CHICAGO TRIBUNE, Howard Reich
“Marcovicci … delivered “Crossing Time” with … eloquence. The haiku-like simplicity of Alexander’s lyrics, paired with the storytelling quality of Markham’s music, made this an instant bit of musical theater. That the song traced the grand arc of a single life – perhaps Marcovicci’s life – rendered it all the more moving.”

CABARET SCENES, Carla Gordon
“Marcovicci offered contemporary selections as well, including a remarkable new song, “Crossing Time,” with lyrics by Marcovicci’s long-time associate Lesley Alexander and music by her venerable music director Shelly Markham. Alexander’s spare lyrics convey vivid images framed in lovely ways by Markham’s sensual melody. Among other thoughts, the song reflects on, how at different passages in life, we hold hands—the toddler holds the parent’s hand, sweethearts hold each other’s—and the act of holding hands gets us through crossing time.”

ABOUT ANDREA MARCOVICCI:
"Andrea Marcovicci has an incandescent enthusiasm and a masterly balance between poignancy and wit." Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Andrea Marcovicci, a champion of the American Popular Songbook, has created full-cast variety shows and over forty solo cabaret shows. Her many recordings reflect her deep devotion not only to classic songwriters of the past (like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and Rodgers & Hart) but her encouragement of new voices composing in that same tradition. Andrea began her career with appearances on The Today Show and The Merv Griffin show, subsequently appearing at the legendary New York nightclub Reno Sweeny, and eventually mounting a solo concert at Carnegie Hall with guest, Michael Feinstein.

Her many awards and honors include a MAC, BISTRO, and MABEL. Andrea was inducted into The Cabaret Hall of Fame in 2016. She holds the record – an unprecedented 25 seasons – at the legendary Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel, and was the final performer ever to grace that stage.

In a career spanning over five decades, the singer and actress, has co-starred with Danny DeVito, Sir Michael Caine, Tom Selleck, Sam Waterston and many others. Her film debut in “The Front” brought her a Golden Globe nomination. She’s played Broadway, the White House, and sold-out the esteemed LICEU Opera House in Barcelona and Town Hall in NYC. Andrea ushered in the millennium with the Chicago Symphony. “Ten Cents a Dance,” her tribute to Ruth Etting, aired on PBS. Andrea has guest starred on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion and read poetry, and stories, for NPR.
