Michael Feinstein @ Zankel Hall 3/22/2010

In Uncategorized on March 25, 2010 at 1:15 pm

Michael stays young and fresh, perhaps with surgical help? And puts on a hell of a show. Intelligently mining the American Songbook to keep all kinds of material in the mix. Sondheim, on his real birthday, Al Jolson, early 20’s to right now, jumping to the piano or with a terrific combo the songs and the stories he tells to accompany them is a delight. As a clincher he took Anthony Newly’s “What Kind Of Fool Am I?” and said it was time to start listening to it again; you’re right M. He had two young guests. Jennifer Sheehan sang beautifully and vamped for the crowd and we love her from this point on. William Blake, isn’t he a poet?, sang a castrato type set and he vamped too! After all it is Cabaret! It’s a lucky thing that there is Michael Feinstein.
