Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Project
by Lynn Marie
10TH Anniversary SFJAZZ Spring Season Presents Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Project on Sunday, May 10, 2010, 7:00pm at the Davies Symphony Hall, 201 Van Ness Avenue (at Grove Street), San Francisco, California.
A leading connoisseur of the Great American Songbook, 4-time Grammy nominated singer Michael Feinstein has blazed a brilliant career by sleuthing out forgotten treasures by the likes of the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, then delivering them in crisply polished performances.
Feinstein has released two dozen albums, and his latest, The Sinatra Project, as a tribute not only to Ol’ Blue Eyes, but to arrangers Nelson Riddle and Billy May and the musicians like trumpeter Harry “Sweets” Edison, who played a key role in shaping Sinatra’s greatest work.
It’s a perfect pairing that reveals anew the wondrous musical riches of Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley.
