Matt Baker and Nicole Zuraitis Streamed from Birdland!
New York/Australian jazz pianist Matt Baker joins Grammy Award-nominated vocalist Nicole Zuraitis in “The Magic of Gershwin,” a brand new project for the Radio Free Birdland series.
“The Magic of Gershwin” is a whole new spin on the music of George Gershwin, interpreted in an intimate duo setting with two of New York’s brightest jazz stars. The show includes music from Crazy for You, Porgy and Bess, An American in Paris and Concerto in F, plus other exciting gems from the classical and popular worlds of George Gershwin.
The program will include “The Man I Love,” “Embraceable You,” “There’s a Boat Dat’s Leavin’ Soon for New York,” “But Not For Me,” “Love Is Here To Stay” and “Home Blues,” plus a selection of themes from the Concerto in F.
