Billy Stritch “I’ve Got Your Number: The Jazz of Cy Coleman”
Billy Stritch âIâve Got Your Number: The Jazz of Cy Colemanâ
In this brand new show, Billy Stritch explores the pop/jazz side of the legendary songwriter Cy Coleman. Although Coleman is mainly known as the composer of a dozen legendary Broadway shows, he was quite prolific writing “stand alone” songs in the 50’s and 60’s, including such well-known titles as “The Best Is Yet To Come,” “Witchcraft” and “It Amazes Me,”as well as more obscure gems co-written with Carolyn Leigh and Peggy Lee. This show was recently presented in London to rave reviews, receiving 4 Stars in the LondonTimes. In this outing, Stritch will be accompanied by Tom Hubbard on bass and Ray Marchica on drums.

Billy Stritch is one of the premier singer-pianists on the NewYork and national jazz and cabaret scene, and is equally known as a soloist and accompanist. His most recent Broadway credit was as musical supervisor and pianist for Liza Minnelli’s Tony Award winning show Liza’s At The Palace, for which he also reconceived the vocal arrangements of the legendary Kay Thompson and The Williams Brothers. In addition to his twenty-two year association with Liza, Billy also accompanies and arranges for Linda Lavin and Marilyn Maye, and is the musical director of “Jim Caruso’s Cast Party” every Monday night at Birdland.

“A carefully selected and compelling programme from someone atthe top of his game. His ease, his craft, his way with an audience and hissheer good taste make this an object lesson in what good cabaret should beabout.”
