ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
(Original 2001 liner notes from this CD):

In the summer and fall of 2000, I joined together with my musical director, David Brunetti, and my bass player, Jered Egan, to perform a new cabaret show in New York. After receiving an enthusiastic reception from both audiences and critics, we decided the following summer to preserve this collection of songs on CD. In order to stay as true to the live show as possible, we recorded the songs as they were done in the club, with just piano and bass accompaniment, and even throwing in a bit of the "patter." We hope that we have achieved the same sense of intimacy that our audiences experienced in the nightclub setting.

Included in this collection are two songs by cabaret icon, Portia Nelson. She passed away a few months ago, but left a beautiful musical legacy. I was honored that she gave me a book of her songs a couple of years ago, and her blessing to perform them.

Also included in this CD are four songs by my dear friend, Dale Gonyea, whom I've known since the late 1970's. I've always been a major fan of his songwriting and performing talents. He does it all -- he sings, he plays a dazzling piano, he's a master showman and comedian, he writes all his own music and lyrics, AND he's a great guy! If you ever hear of Dale performing in your area, I urge you to catch one of his shows.

"Pink Fish," an old Alan Menken song written in his piano bar days (yes, he used to play New York piano bars!), has become a bit of a signature song for me. It's more effective when you listen to it as a medley with "That's What I Like 'bout The South," since the first song explains the second. And, every word of the opening monologue is true!

Also included in this CD are various standards and showtunes that are favorites of mine. I hope you will enjoy listening to this eclectic collection of songs as much as I have enjoyed performing them. Thanks.
