Impromptu Cabaret Festival

"My Broadway Jazzography"

 

My first love is jazz. As a boy, I’d spend hours on our living room floor in front of my parents’ record player, listening to Frank Sinatra, Nat “King” Cole, Louis Armstrong, and the Tommy Dorsey Band. I’m not even sure why my parents had those records; they never listened to them. When I was ten, I bought my first jazz recording: a cassette tape of Count Basie’s Greatest Hits.
My second love is musical theatre. As a teenager, I was bitten by the bug when I auditioned for a community production of The Sound of Music and was cast in the role of Rolf Gruber, delivery boy and love interest of Liesl von Trapp. For me, this was the beginning of a steady stream of musicals spanning more than three decades. 

Join jazz pianist Sharon Minemoto and myself, as we combine my two loves and present an autobiographical collection of popular show tunes, all with an unmistakable jazz twist!     My first love is jazz.

    I just want to say that I am a huge fan of Sharon Minemoto and for me, she is one of the best performers I have ever met. Actually, I am hoping that I will get the chance to work with her soon. There are some [url=https://essaysoriginreview.com/affordable-papers-review/]affordable papers reviews[/url] I have read about her and it seems like she is admired by a lot of people too which is a good thing. That means, a lot of people admire her greatness!
