From New York City! Award winning Stars of Cabaret hit the stage at Nighttown!
Featuring: Eric Comstock-piano & vocals, Barbara Fasano-vocals, & Bryan Thomas-acoustic bass.
“The sophisticated cabaret children of Bobby Short and Lena Horne … Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure.” – The New York Times
“Comstock has a voice that flows as smoothly as rye and sweet vermouth over ice, evoking Chet Baker, Mel Torme and Mark Murphy … Fasano has taste, built-in dramatic chops, the ability to manipulate time, and, above all, respect for lyrics.” – Jazz Times
Married musical partners Eric Comstock & Barbara Fasano’s electrifying combination of warmth, wit, swing and sensuality have made them the New York nightclub world's most celebrated team. This award-winning duo makes their Night Town debut with a freewheeling mashup of the jazz and pop songbooks, from Jerome Kern to Joni Mitchell, Cole Porter to Billy Strayhorn. The New York Times calls their shows "witty" and "exhilarating" and this swinging and soulful married couple makes their audiences feel they're at a terrific party where the music and the stories have been equally great.
Pianist/singer Eric Comstock has been called "the heir apparent to the cabaret throne". Vocalist Barbara Fasano's new CD BUSY BEING FREE is being hailed as "busy being intoxicatingly sublime” & won the 2016 MAC Award for Major Recording of the Year. The New York Times calls their shows "witty" & "exhilarating", and The Wall Street Journal raves, “Masterful … They take it to a whole other level.”
Their many New York engagements include Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Birdland, Jazz at Kitano, and the 92nd Street Y's ‘Lyrics and Lyricists’ series, as well as concert halls and festivals coast to coast and in Europe. In the words of jazz critic Ira Gitler, they “have it all, and then some … artistic, swinging, and superbly entertaining.” Come join the party!
