Sally Kellerman Coming to Feinstein's at the Nikko, 8/1

Sally Kellerman, the legendary Oscar-nominated "Hot Lips" of the original "M*A*S*H," will bring her new show, A Little Jazz, A Little Blues, A Little Rock and Roll to Feinstein's at the Nikko for one performance only - Saturday, August 1 at 7 p.m. The show is a celebration of her 40-year cabaret career, from early years at Reno Sweeney in Greenwich Village up to recent performances in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Tickets for Sally Kellerman range in price from $25 - $40 and are on-sale now and available by calling 866.663.1063 or visiting www.ticketweb.com.

Kellerman has starred in more than 50 films and countless TV shows and even hosted "Saturday Night Live." She currently has a recurring role on Marc Maron's IFC comedy series "Maron," and was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her guest appearances earlier this season on "The Young and the Restless".

Her distinctive, husky voice has been heard on hundreds of commercials (most famously Hidden Valley Ranch) and she recorded a duet with Ella Fitzgerald's son, Ray Brown Jr., for his album "Friends and Family." Her own classic album, "Roll With the Feelin'," was recently reissued by Geffen Records and was followed by the acclaimed new CD, "Sally." Her saucy memoir "Read My Lips," is currently in bookstores.

Critic Stephen Sorokoff, reviewing her show at New York's 54 Below, wrote "WOW, what a (S) M*A*S*H! She's a force of nature, a musical, physical aphrodisiac...a vocal style that totally captivates and moves you as she travels through her wonderful song list."

Critic Rex Reed, reviewing her at Feinstein's in New York City, noted "she has a lusty, suggestive way with both lyrics and words that defies the passing of time. She hasn't changed a bit since her giddy role as 'Hot Lips' in Robert Altman's 'M*A*S*H' made the world drool back in 1970. She is still, to put it bluntly, a goddamn knockout...she sings with so much self-assurance and such a passion for music that she can switch effortlessly in style and tempo from the raucous pop-rock of the Pointer Sisters to the navy-blue jazz phrasing of Billie Holiday with the snap of a finger. Doing what she loves and loving what she's doing, Sally Kellerman is a blast of West Coast vitamin C."

Ed Martel will serve as Kellerman's music director.
