VENUE PROMOTED EVENT IN NYC: RICHARD MALAVET - VERY GOOD YEARS: THE INTIMATE SINATRA - - AS ADVERTISED IN CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE BY THE METROPOLITAN ROOM
Returning to Manhattan cabaret after a brief hiatus, Richard Malavet brings his brand new show, Very Good Years: The Intimate Sinatra to THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) on Thursday & Friday, August 27th & 28th at 7:00 pm. Multi-Grammy nominee John di Martino will be musical director/arranger and pianist leading the band. This is the year of Frank Sinatra's centennial. He remains the iconic pop singer whom musical historians and critics' consider the definitive pop vocalist of the last 100 years. In a crowded field, he stands alone as the male singer by whom singers of the Great American Songbook are compared. Throughout his career, Sinatra considered himself a saloon singer. This special retrospective is a chronology of select recorded songs including "This Love Of Mine," and "I'm A Fool To Want You," (two songs he co-wrote), also "Night And Day" and his personal favorite, "Put Your Dreams Away." It also includes the many songs he recorded with his favorite arranger Nelson Riddle. The set will focus on the years 1939 through 1968. It will also feature lesser known gems such as "Once I Loved," "Say It (Over And Over Again") and "The Same Hello, The Same Goodbye," (written for Frank by Alan & Marilyn Bergman, but never recorded.) There will also be respectful nods to Antonio Carlos Jobim and Duke Ellington both of whom Sinatra collaborated with in the 1960s. Several arrangements are given a decided Latin twist. Richard Malavet has been acclaimed for his work as a singer of the classic American and Spanish songbooks. He has performed with his band in many Manhattan clubs. A native New Yorker, Mr. Malavet has brought his highly acclaimed Billy Eckstine tribute, "The Billy Eckstine Project: Songs in the Key of 'B," to venues across the country. There is a $22.50 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
