Barbara Cook and Michael Feinstein - Cheek To Cheek

Barbara Cook and Michael Feinstein - Cheek To Cheek

The fabulous Barbara Cook joins forces for the first time with Michael Feinstein recorded live at his Manhattan nightclub, Feinstein`s at Loews Regency.

The CD features standards by Arlen, Porter, Berlin and Sondheim plus lesser-known songs including a gem, Ever After, by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the title song from their forthcoming musical.

"The joy of collaboration is a unique pleasure for an artist. It can sometimes reveal aspects of one's own art that might otherwise remain hidden. Working with Barbara has been a highlight in every way and I simply adore her. She is not only a singer's singer and supreme interpreter of text, she is also sweet, passionate, bawdy, funny and wonderful company. Thank you Barbara for the honor!" - Michael Feinstein

"Michael Feinstein has been brilliant in creating a series of duet nightclub acts...He has, perhaps, outdone himself by teaming up with the legendary Barbara Cook..." - Barbara and Scott Siegel

"The most surprising aspect of the pairing of Broadway legend Barbara Cook and cabaret veteran Michael Feinstein is that they didn't think of getting together sooner. Their teaming is a natural." - David Sheward, BackStage

Michael Feinstein - Fly Me To The Moon

Michael Feinstein - Fly Me To The Moon

A five-time Grammy nominee, Michael Feinstein is often credited with reinvigorating interest in the American popular song. He has performed in concert halls around the world and on Broadway and now co-owns his own nightclub, Feinstein's at Loews Regency.

This new release from Duckhole Records presents Michael in an intimate reflective mood and features jazz guitar legend Joe Negri, Jay Leonhardt on bass and Joe Cocuzzo on drums.

Includes superbly illustrative sleeve notes about each song by Michael himself.

"This is an intimate album that should find its place at the top of any list of great interpretations of any songbook." - John Hoglund, Cabaret Scenes

"Feinstein purrs - rather than croons - songs of gthe night more fitting for a cozy living room with a glass of wine or a snifter of brandy by a crackling fireplace...Feinstein's loveliest album in years." - Steven Suskin,
