BWW Review: Ronny Whyte's Inimitable Elegant Style Buoys The Jazz Room at KitanoBWW Review: Ronny Whyte's Inimitable Elegant Style Buoys The Jazz Room at Kitano
by Alix Cohen - Jun 6, 2016

Ronny Whyte epitomizes everything gracious, refined, and sophisticated that's become rare in music presented by artists under a certain age and temperament. Even with jazz interpretation, his accessible choices and deceptively casual delivery present songs as their authors intended. When he composes, tacit symbiosis with lyricists creates melody and images that seem to come from a less complicated era. Last Saturday night, Whyte was joined by veteran collaborators--Boots Maleson on bass,†David Silliman on drums, and guest guitarist Sean Harkness--for a show that featured mostly eclectic American Songbook standards and originals from his own oeuvre.

BWW Review: Scott Dreier Triumphs with THE DORIS DAY PROJECT CDBWW Review: Scott Dreier Triumphs with THE DORIS DAY PROJECT CD
by Don Grigware - May 6, 2016

My association with Scott Dreier dates back to a cabaret for his first album named aptly†Scott Dreier.††I was exceedingly impressed with his fine voice, boyish charm and affability.Then followed his show†Doris and Me, which I reviewed once in Escondido and later in Los Angeles. The show about Doris Day and his love for her went beyond what I would call an ordinary cabaret presentation. He literally blew me away. It is really two shows in one: a biography of Doris's career told through the songs she made famous and then a semi-biography of Dreier, who grew up from a young age loving Doris Day, her songs, and her movies. It is the second show that makes it all work so beautifully, because, as fans of Doris Day, we see and appreciate the effects that her persona has had on all of us. As an individual Scott Dreier is expressing what we all feel, that intense love and admiration for one of the greatest screen legends of all time. (more...)

BWW Review: Ann Hampton Callaway's Ardent BUT BEAUTIFUL Thrills BirdlandBWW Review: Ann Hampton Callaway's Ardent BUT BEAUTIFUL Thrills Birdland
by Alix Cohen - May 6, 2016

I don't know when Ann Hampton Callaway started this chapter of her life, but she's emphatically in a new one. The artist savors every note, propelled headlong into her songs with uncommon exuberance. Signature authority extends not only to stellar scat but to enacting selected material. Accompanied by The Ted Rosenthal Trio (Ted Rosenthal, piano; Martin Wind, bass;†Tim Horner, drums), Callaway shines luminous at Birdland (where I saw her latest show Wednesday night and which continues for two more shows Friday and Saturday night at 8:30 and 11 pm).
