Description

After her spectacularly successful, sold-out Valentine’s week residency at Birdland last year, celebrating her acclaimed album Out of The Dark: The Film Noir Project, Melissa returns with an entirely new program, this time celebrating her forthcoming album of New York songs by the greatest of New York songwriters, Sondheim In The City. From wistful ballads of young love (“What More Do I Need”) to hard-edged anthems of middle-aged angst (“The Little Things We Do Together”), Melissa will sing the many faces of her native city through the words and music of the man who saw it best. But it won’t be all Sondheim: this Manhattan valentine will also be embroidered with classics by Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, and even Billy Joel. Come to New York’s most legendary jazz club and hear why The Wall Street Journal calls Melissa Errico, “A nonpareil performer” and why Broadway World announced that she is “one of the great musical interpreters of our time.”
 
“Just seen the utterly phenomenal Melissa Errico, doing her brilliant noir program at Birdland Jazz. Melissa is a sophisticated delight, effortlessly conjuring another age. I’m so glad to be able to time travel with her!”
- Mark Shenton
 
“Errico knows her way around a lyric…her show is ripe territory for a singer who can inhabit a song, and as a Tony Award-nominated actress she plunges into the role, offering charcoaled impressions of ill-fated romance, obsession, and thwarted dreams.” - JazzTimes

“Everything she sings is sublime.” - The Wall Street Journal
