Michael Feinstein begins the Jazz & Popular Song series illuminating the significant role of jazz in sustaining the popularity of the American Jazz Standard. Songs originally written for film, stage, and nightclub acts became classics through the genius of artists like Coleman Hawkins and Ella Fitzgerald. Experience the evolution of “Body and Soul,” “Stardust,” and “All the Things You Are” from none other than the “Ambassador of the Great American Songbook.”

Joining Feinstein will be the Tedd Firth Big Band and three special guest vocalists: cabaret treasure Marilyn Maye, soul sensation Freda Payne, and second place winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Vocal Competition, Veronica Swift.
