Michael Feinstein: Swinging With The Count at The Appel Room
The 2017–18 Jazz & Popular Song series closes with a swinging celebration of Count Basie. Singer, historian, host, director, and all-around entertainer Michael Feinstein provides a glamorous evening of timeless vocal stylings, entertaining anecdotes, and the Tedd Firth Big Band's irresistible swing. Audiences will be swept away by The Appel Room's stunning view of the Manhattan skyline while enjoying hits made famous by Count Basie and vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Williams, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis, Jr., Sarah Vaughan, and Bing Crosby. Special guest singers will join Feinstein on classics like "One O'Clock Jump," "April In Paris," "The Good Life," and "Everyday I have the Blues," and the Tedd Firth Big Band's virtuosic instrumentalists will round out the uplifting and elegant affair. Michael Feinstein's Jazz & Popular Song is one of our longest-running and most popular concert series, and this event will be a climactic finale to its seventh consecutive season.
