Acclaimed pop/jazz vocalist Barbara Fasano comes home to Birdland Theater with a set of eclectic songs ranging from Harold Arlen to Joni Mitchell, from Harry Warren to Bruce Springsteen. A storyteller in song in the tradition of Carmen McRae, Sylvia Syms and Julie Wilson, Ms. Fasano explores the complexities of love and the circles we all swirl within, singing “wise, literate songs about life in all its confusing wonder,” as author James Gavin writes. “She seems incapable of singing an unintelligent or unmusical phrase.” Winner of multiple MAC, Bistro and NY Nightlife Awards, her last two CDs, “Busy Being Free” and “Written In The Stars,” were praised in publications as diverse as Playbill and JazzTimes and won MAC Awards for Record of the Year.
Called “artistic, swinging and superbly entertaining” by revered jazz critic Ira Gitler, Ms. Fasano has headlined at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and concert halls and jazz festivals internationally.
In August, she makes her MUSIC MOUNTAIN debut as part of their
"Twilight Jazz" series. Go HERE for more information.
"She is a captivating performer, delivering songs with an actor's depth and emotion and well-trained vocal strength ... A witty and passionate show exploring memories and life with one artist who understands what the songs are saying, how they should be sung and has fun sharing it all with us."
~ Elizabeth Ahlfors, City Cabaret
