Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Adrian Cunningham Quintet with special guest vocalist Brianna Thomas

From My Fair Lady to Camelot: Music by Frederick Loewe and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

With music director, clarinetist, and saxophonist Adrian Cunningham, trumpeter Joe Magnarelli, pianist Ted Rosenthal, bassist Doug Weiss, drummer Jerome Jennings, and vocalist Brianna Thomas.

With support from the Loewe Foundation, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola celebrates the great Lerner and Loewe musicals by revisiting Loewe’s timeless compositions in a swinging jazz context. This program will continue the popular and fruitful relationship between musical theater and jazz—a relationship in which Lerner and Loewe played an essential role. In 1956, Shelly Manne’s My Fair Lady became the first jazz album ever to consist entirely of songs from a single Broadway musical, and before long other jazz artists like Quincy Jones, Nat “King” Cole, Oscar Peterson, and Dick Hyman released their own takes on the Lerner and Loewe classic. There’s plenty of potential left in this material for fresh interpretation and inspiration, and fans of the golden age of Broadway and Hollywood musicals will not want to miss this event.

An evening celebrating the great musicals of Lerner & Loewe, including My Fair Lady, Brigadoon and Camelot. Supported by The Frederick Loewe Foundation.
