Malcolm Gets Celebrates The Journey Home With John McDaniel At Birdland, 6/1

Jim Caruso's Cast Party is proud to announce the return of Malcolm Gets to the Broadway at Birdland concert series.  Gets will be celebrating the release of his new cd, “The Journey Home” (PS Classics) on Monday, June 1 at 7pm.  Composer/pianist/Emmy winner John McDaniel will serve as Musical Director for the evening.

Tickets cost $25 General Admission, $40 Premium/$10 food-drink minimum. For more information, call 212-581-3080 or visit www.BirdlandJazz.com.

Malcolm Gets has often said that his career happened because of the record cabinet in his parents' living room…specifically, the cast albums of the 1950s and '60s that were stored there.  Gets was studying to be a classical pianist, but instead of practicing, would end up playing selections by Rodgers & Hammerstein.  Now, after forging an acclaimed career as a star of Broadway (Amour, A New Brain and The Story of My Life) and television (“Caroline in the City” and HBO's “Grey Gardens”), Gets retraces his musical roots in his debut solo album, “The Journey Home.”  Rediscovering his diverse musical touchstones, Gets digs deep into beloved classics like “You Are Beautiful” and “Long Before I Knew You,” takes on anthems both raucous (“It's a Fine Life”) and romantic (“Look to the Rainbow”), and mines the passion and pathos in newer ballads like William Finn's “Anytime.”

Malcolm Gets recently starred opposite Will Chase in the Broadway musical The Story of My Life and was seen as George 'Gould' Strong in the HBO film “Grey Gardens.”  He played opposite Kristin Chenoweth in the Encores! production of The Apple Tree, and starred in the Broadway musical Amour.  His off-Broadway credits include Polish Joke, Boys and Girls, A New Brain, Hello Again, Merrily We Roll Along, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Finian's Rainbow and the Encores! The Boys From Syracuse.  He is perhaps best known for his work on the television series “Caroline in the City.”

Conductor, composer, orchestrator, record producer, Grammy and two-time Emmy Award-winner John McDaniel has enjoyed a lively career on Broadway and on television.  His Broadway shows as arranger and musical director include Annie Get Your Gun, Brooklyn, Taboo and Grease.  John is perhaps best known as the band leader on “The Rosie O'Donnell” Show.  He has conducted symphony orchestras from coast to coast including the San Francisco Symphony, The Baltimore Symphony and his own hometown St. Louis Symphony.  He has recorded three solo CD's, John McDaniel at the Piano: Broadway, John McDaniel at the Piano: Christmas, and John McDaniel at the Piano: Compositions. His most recent release is John McDaniel Live at Joe's Pub.
