Marilyn Maye and Kenny Werner
“Ms. Maye has the remarkable ability to transform upbeat sloganeering into rousing affirmation, infused with such certainty and sense of purpose that she can penetrate the armor and melt the heart of the most hardened cynics.” - The New York Times
Grammy Award-nominated Marilyn Maye is a musical treasure. Singer, actress, director, arranger and educator, she has earned her place in the entertainment lexicon the old-fashioned way: pure talent and determination. One of Maye’s many un-matched talents is to fill theaters whether singing big and theatrical Broadway and cabaret or hip, cool, swinging jazz. Perhaps the simplest Marilyn Maye accolade came after one of her show-stopping appearances on “The Tonight Show” when turning to his audience of millions, Johnny Carson said, “And that, young singers, is the way it’s done.”
“Mr. Werner is a clear virtuoso, and when he solos there’s wit everywhere…” - The New York Times
Grammy Award-nominated Kenny Werner is a pianist of seemingly infinite capacity. He expertly entwines the three sisters of music – melody, harmony and rhythm – making the piano sing with beauty and confidence. A concert with Kenny at the helm is a lyrical (but never predictable) journey through the vast seas of improvised music.
