BWW Reviews: CORINNA SOWERS-ADLER Holds to Her Own 'High Standards' with a Show By the Same Name at Metropolitan RoomBWW Reviews: CORINNA SOWERS-ADLER Holds to Her Own 'High Standards' with a Show By the Same Name at Metropolitan Room
by Alix Cohen - Jun 22, 2015

As she wends her way towards the stage at the opening of her new show at the Metropolitan Room (performances were on June 15 and 20), Corinna Sowers Adler sings the Jerome Kern/Oscar Hammerstein II classic “All The Things You Are” with warm, legato phrases that surround the club like a hug. Sowers Adler achieves this not only with her singing, but also the friendly and personal nature of her bridging dialogue. In High Standards, she manages to make us feel privy to an authentic self without a lot of in-jokes intended for attending friends and family. The standards to which this show's title refers are not only those evergreen numbers collected in The Great American Song Book, but also yardsticks by which we measure quality and value in life.

BWW Reviews: THE SINATRA CENTURY at 54 Below Celebrates 'Old Blue Eyes' with Swinging FlairBWW Reviews: THE SINATRA CENTURY at 54 Below Celebrates 'Old Blue Eyes' with Swinging Flair
by Alix Cohen - Jan 9, 2015

Frances Albert (Frank) Sinatra (1915-1998) was arguably one of the most important vocalists of 20th century. The Hoboken, New Jersey native began as a boy singer with big band leaders Harry James and Tommy Dorsey, became a heartthrob to bobbysoxers, a headliner in nightclubs during their heyday, and was one of the best selling recording artists of all time. Sinatra's illusively relaxed phrasing was as unique as the quality of swing he made popular. This centennial year of his birth will be filled with tributes. 'You beat the rush,' Producer/Writer/Host Scott Siegel quipped from a podium last night during the variety tribute show The Sinatra Century at 54 Below. (more...)
