Join me on Thursday, December 16 at Club Café, 209 Columbus Ave in Boston, for performances of tunes by Bert Seager with lyrics by me. Thanks to cabaret master, Dane Vannater, six of our songs will be performed, including a world premiere of “New Acquaintance,” a song for the New Year. The music begins at 8 pm with open mic; our songs will go on around 9:30.
I’ve never enjoyed any writing project more than this. A few years ago, I had the pleasure of working with jazz pianist/composer Bert Seager on a series of tunes that were recorded under the title REQUITED.
Last year, we collaborated on “New Acquaintance,” a lovely melody with words that hit the same emotional notes as “Old Lange Syne.” Local cabaret master Dane Vannater fell in love with this song and indeed with the whole Seager/Diamant “oeuvre.”
Dane will be singing two tunes, including “New Acquaintance,” which has never been performed before. http://www.danevannatter.com/
He will be joined by the gifted Rebecca Shrimpton, http://www.rebeccashrimpton.com/, the beautiful voice on the REQUITED CD.
My dear friend, the talented singer (and soulful cantor) Lorel Zar-Kessler, will also appear to sing “Open Book.”
David Sparr will be at the piano.
Hoping to see you there.
