Corky Hale plays Gershwin & Duke

by Corky Hale

In selecting the material for this album, I chose tunes and tempos which I felt would best suit the instrument; showcase the harp as a vehicle for the modern sounds.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY

Who else was born in a small midwestern farm town and at seven years of age had her first job, playing piano with the Horace Heidt band? Is there any other musician who has played harp with Liberace; piano with Billie Holiday and Mel Torme; sang with the bands of Harry James, Ray Anthony, and Jerry Gray; owned the most successful clothing store in Hollywood for 17 years; owned "Corky's," a popular restaurant on New York's East Side, and lived in Rome for three years appearing in a successful TV show Tempo di Jazz? How many other performers were invited to the White House to perform with Tony Bennett; soloed with Barbra Streisand in Central Park and the Hollywood Bowl; performed with Bjork on her MTV Special in London, George Michael at London's Royal Albert Hall and RFK Stadium, and country western star Mandy Barnett? We're talking about Corky Hale, considered to be one of the finest jazz harpists in the world.

Her sold-out performances at the Oak Room at the Algonquin in New York, Davenport's in Chicago, the Cinegrill in Los Angeles, the Plush Room in San Francisco, and Pizza On The Park in London have led L.A. Times' jazz reviewer Don Heckman to observe that Corky is "More than a triple threat," and Philip Ellwood of the San Francisco Examiner noted her performance is "one of cyclonic proportions."
