ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jamison is best known for her critically acclaimed interpretations of Hoagy
Carmichael's music. Her popular Carmichael tribute, Star Dust Melodies, has
been extended numerous times at Toulouse on the Park, Chicago's premier
cabaret room, and was called "A masterful homage to Hoagy" by Howard Reich
of the Chicago Tribune. Jamison is currently taking Star Dust Melodies on a
national tour which began at New York's Eighty-Eight's cabaret club and
continues nationally through 2000.

As the leading interpreter of Carmichael's music, Jamison was the featured
Carmichael performer at the 1999 Chicago Jazz Festival with Dick Sudhalter,
the Bloomington Pops Carmichael Celebration Concert with Randy Carmichael,
and the Chicago Humanities Festival Carmichael Centennial event with Hoagy
Bix Carmichael.

Further documenting her passion for Hoagy's music, Jamison has recently
released a CD tribute, Here's to Hoagy, with accompanist and musical
director Dan Stetzel. According to the Chicago Tribune's CD review, "If the
centennial of Hoagy Carmichael is going to inspire just one new recording,
then this release deserves to be it." The CD is available nationally
through LML Music.

In addition to her Carmichael centennial performances, Jamison is known for
her tributes to Johnny Mercer, June Christy, and most recently, Noel Coward.
She joined Patricia Morrison, Steve Ross, Barry Day, Robert Kimball, and
Billy Stritch in the Chicago Humanities Festival's Noel Coward tribute in
November and is performing another Coward tribute in December at The
Player's Club in New York City. This past October, Jamison was a featured
performer at the Mabel Mercer Foundation's Tenth Annual Cabaret Convention
in New York City, where she was specially selected to perform as part of an
evening honoring the 75th birthday of cabaret legend, Julie Wilson.

In addition to her cabaret talents, Jamison has numerous theatre credits.
In Chicago she performed the roles of Ariel and Belle in Disney's production
of A Hercules Spectacular at The Chicago Theatre. Nationally, she has
appeared as Babe in The Pajama Game and in The Best Little Whorehouse In
Texas.

Cory Jamison is a graduate of Indiana University and a 1998 Eugene O'Neill
Cabaret Symposium fellow.

Fabulous
One of the best collections and performances of
Carmichael's music I've heard. It's true that Jamison has a trained, 'uptown' voice. But she
brings real feeling and sympathy (& humor when
required) to these timeless standards. Classy
effort all around.
