Steve Tyrell at the Cafe Carlyle (2017)

Steve Tyrell at the Cafe Carlyle (2017)

Posted Dec 28, 2017

As has been observed before, the ironic thing about Steve Tyrell is that even though he’s easily one of the most successful living masters of the art of making records - both as a producer and a vocalist - he is even better when experienced live, especially in the warm, intimate setting of the Carlyle. This is more true than ever during the holiday season, when the sweet sensations of nostalgia for home and family and the good times of years gone by become even more palpable, as lovingly rendered by Mr. Tyrell with his mellow, delightfully raspy baritone.

Bruce Springsteen Broadway Review: The Boss Delivers Triumph of Storytelling and Sound

Bruce Springsteen Broadway Review: The Boss Delivers Triumph of Storytelling and Sound

By: Kevin Yazell

I recently enjoyed the privilege of attending Springsteen on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theater in NYC. I waffled a bit about actually going as the ticket was quite valuable and, as a veteran of more than 150 shows, over far too many years to admit to, I assumed that I had already seen everything he might do at one show or another. WRONG! Any dedicated fan’s Springsteen experience is incomplete without seeing this performance.

Carnegie Hall Tours: History Comes to Life

The tale of Carnegie Hall begins similar to many famous landmarks – groundbreaking, insane, a bad idea, and a love story. It is also a great story and I recently learned the inside scoop by attending a guided tour of Carnegie Hall. Our guide knew every imaginable (and some not) detail about the Hall and its history and was extremely excited to share the whole story!

Bloomingdale's Personal Shoppers Help Busy Buyers in NYC

Shopping is often looked upon as an errand; trying to find that too rare window of free time, browsing around in quests for the right stores, fighting through crowds of people, waiting in line for dressing rooms, finding the right size at the time of the right sale etc. It can sometimes be so tedious, that it’s hard to enjoy yourself. At Bloomingdale’s in NYC, that’s where personal shoppers can make all the difference.

Paula West @ Jazz at Lincoln Center

Paula West @ Jazz at Lincoln Center

Posted Dec 2, 2017

The San Francisco-based singer, who, alas, hasn’t played Jazz at Lincoln Center since 2013, herewith makes a triumphant return in New York. Miss West, who headlined at the Oak Room of the Algonquin for much of the previous decade, was at the time celebrated for bringing a touch of jazz to what was then New York’s most venerated cabaret room; now, she’s doing the opposite, bringing the lyric-driven spirit and humor of the best cabaret artists to the most visible jazz club in the country. Ms. West’s strengths are still the same, only stronger, not least of which is the ability to switch gears between such traditional jazz-and-cabaret fare as Rodgers and Hart (“Lover”) and more contemporary songsters, like John Lennon (“Gimme Some Truth”), while stopping at such iconclasts as Oscar Brown Jr. (“The Snake,” “Hum-Drum Blues”) along the way. A formidable swinger as well as a storyteller, she still delivers the most compelling interpretation of “Like a Rolling Stone” that I’ve ever heard, as well as of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “The Waters of March” - which, in her hands, is so soulful and personal that it could be titled “The Ethel Waters of March.”
