Bing Crosby, Nat “King” Cole, and Mel Tormé are three great masters of the canon known as “The Great American Songbook.” Their velvety voices and mastery of sentimental serenades made them the quintessential crooners of the twentieth century, but their respective landmark achievements across the mediums of radio, television, film, and recording made them legends. Music director Bryan Carter and his stellar ensemble, featuring vocalists Denzal Sinclaire, Benny Benack III, and Charles Turner, pay tribute to these geniuses of song.

The Ray Charles Songbook

The year singer and pianist Diane Schuur was born was pivotal for one of her heroes: Ray Charles had just signed with Atlantic Records to craft the new sound of soul. Charles’ ingenious synthesis of gospel, jazz, blues, and country music would become his legacy and, for Schuur, a blueprint for possibilities. With 2012 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Drums Competition winner Jamison Ross and the Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars, Schuur, affectionately nicknamed “Deedles,” pays homage to “The Genius” by performing some of his most revered works.
