Jarrod Spector's 'A Little Help From My Friends' Live Album Gets 3/25 Release
Broadway Records will release Jarrod Spector's "A Little Help From My Friends: Live At 54 BELOW" digitally and on CD on March 25th, 2014. The CD is available for pre-order at http://amzn.com/B00IP9ZAG2. The CD will be available in advance to those attending Jarrod's upcoming 54 BELOW concerts on March 10th, 23rd and 24th. Spector will be signing CDs at these 54 BELOW performances as well as at his engagement on March 31st at 54 BELOW.
"Putting together this show and album affected me in a deep and profound way," Spector noted. The album, which features music from artists like Billy Joel, Enrico Caruso, Little Richard, Freddie Mercury, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, and Bono required exhaustive research. "In researching this album, I was immersed in the music of these venerated artists whom I've adored my whole life. After portraying one man [Frankie Vallie] for 1500 performances with Jersey Boys, I was haunted by identity fears. Being able to delve into the repertoire of other artists helped quell them. I now feel a sense of fraternity with these artists."
"Jarrod is a truly gifted performer with an astonishing range and 'A Little Help From My Friends' is a worthy addition to our ever expanding 'Live at 54 BELOW' album series," said Van Dean, co-founder of Broadway Records. "This recording is the 25th we have released since starting the label in 2012 and is a fitting way to welcome Jarrod to the Broadway Records family."
The music director for "A Little Help From My Friends: Live at 54 BELOW" is Adam Ben-David and the recording is produced by Michael J. Moritz, Jr. and Jarrod Spector and executive produced by Rich Aronstein and The Broadway Consortium. "A Little Help From My Friends" is the latest in the "Live at 54 BELOW" series that started earlier this year with albums by Patti LuPone, Norbert Leo Butz, Christiane Noll, Andrea McArdle, Aaron Tveit, Laura Benanti and the most recently released Sierra Boggess, Michael Cerveris & Loose Cattle and Bebe Neuwirth. More albums in the series will be announced shortly.
