tami tappan CD...BUH-rilliant!#0

To anyone looking for a great stocking stuffer, I highly recommend Tami Tappan Damiano's new CD "Hot Notes". I have been searching for this CD for almost a year since hearing an advanced track at a friend's house and I am absolutely blown away by the whole thing. The versatility in her singing and in her choice of selections is just astoundingly gorgeous to listen to. Her voice can be light and pure of tone but then turns around and belts to the rafters, not to mention her great jazz and standards style. Just stunning.

I remember seeing her as 'ellen' in SAIGON and when she went on for 'roxanne' when she was covering in CYRANO and have since considered myself a huge fan. The woman, besides having style for days has- no break. NO vocal break whatsoever and listening to this CD is an awe inspiring experience especially for singers and for those who long for the days when vocalists interpereted their lyrics and somehow seem to reach out through the songs to grab you emotionally.

Anyway- all this time i have been looking for tami's CD under her maiden name by mistake- and finally found it under her married name (damiano) at the BCEFA site. In case any of you have been doing the same- here's the link for those who wish to buy it:

support Tami and support BCEFA at the same time- and bring her back to BROADWAY!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone!

She does a great version of "What More Can I Say?" from FALSETTOS. Nice to hear a woman sing it too.

Oh, wow, thanks!

I've only seen her in Miss Saigon, but this sounds very interesting. Even if my sister (12 at the time) said she had "a vibrato like a seagull," I liked her. :)

I am arguably Tami's biggest fan in Los Angeles. Saw her last night in The Grand Tour (the 5th or 6th thing I've seen her in this year) and she gave as perfect a performance as ever. Her breathtaking star-turn in Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party inspired me to start a thread here just to say how sensational a performance she gave.
https://www.broadwayworld.com/board/readmessage.cfm?boardname=bway&thread=853317#1109703
She's also one of the loveliest performers we have. I told her last night that her being here in L.A. is the best reason for me not to have to move to New York!
And Hot Notes is every bit as good as you say!
Her next big gig will be in February starring opposite David Engel in Never Gonna Dance (in Long Beach).
PS: Tiny, I'm going back to see The Grand Tour next Friday and will be happy to print up your post and deliver it to her!

First of all, Hi Steven! Long time no talk.

Secondly, Tami is a dear dear friend. I'm so excited to read great things about her! Yes, the CD is fantastic. But what was even better was getting to see her in concert, performing the tracks from the CD live! She's by far one of my fav. friends and performers. I love that she'll be doing Never Gonna Dance! She and David make a great on-stage team.

Tami's incredibly talented! Saw her in several things this year - "My Way" at La Mirada, "Guys & Dolls" at Musical Theatre West, and finally "The Grand Tour" at the Colony. I've become quite an admirer of her talent!

eslgr-

oh YES!
please do pass on my post to her. I'd be thrilled that she knows she has such support. I have to take issue tho with you- I know you want to keep her in LA...but we miss her desperately in NYC! Ah well, at least it's comforting to know she's appreciated out there on the West Coast as she deserves to be. Please tell her i wish her the best.

For Wicked fans out there, Tami sang Popular to the lovely Kim Huber (as Elphaba) at the Reprise under-the-stars concert this summer and anyone who saw her can only hope that she will get to play Galinda somewhere someday. She nailed every delightful moment of the song!
By the way, her husband Chris Damiano was sensational in a play called Two Gentlemen of Corona this summer. They have an adorable one year old named Dante.

PS:
Anyone else who wants to add something nice about Tami, feel free to post it here and I'll deliver it personally to her next Friday after The Grand Tour. I'm sure she'll be thrilled that so many people on both coasts (and in Hawaii) are in love with her talent.

Tami is absolutely fabulous. I can't wait to see her starring (with David Engle) in the West Coast premiere of "Never Gonna Dance". She is perfect for the part.

I heard her music about a year ago on my satellite radio where Seth Rudetsky begged for her to come back to Broadway. She is amazing and I love "Hot Notes"! I live in CA and have not been able to make it to one of shows yet, but I will go see Song and Dance next year. And I think she would make a fabulous Glinda (maybe by the time Wicked comes to the O.C. next year....) Please also give her my best. Tami - You're awsome!!

I did a play reading about 10 years ago with Tami. She also happens to be a terrific comedienne. VERY funny.

And be sure to see Tami and the divine David Engel in Never Gonna Dance opening February 18 in Long Beach.

And you can get a new (not used) Hot Notes for $11.21 plus shipping at Amazon.com, from one of their merchants Caiman. (I love every track on the CD.)

STEVEN AND TAMI/JANUARY 27, 2005
Tiny, I finally got to deliver the printout of this thread to Tami tonight, after her (as always) excellent performance in City of Angels. We spoke for maybe five minutes, and she is truly as lovely as everyone has said about her. I'm sure that she will enjoy reading everyone's glowing remarks about her!

Great picture, Steven!! I adore Tami!! She's just SO talented and so sweet to speak with after the show. I was running around a bit and didn't get to speak with her after the show on Friday night, but I did have a nice talk with her after the matinee yesterday - and she was just lovely. I can't wait to see her in "Never Gonna Dance" re: tami tappan CD...BUH-rilliant!
