Andrea Marcovicci on Her 25 Years in the Oak Room

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Singer Andrea Marcovicci discusses her 25th year performing at the Oak Room at the Algonquin. Only the late Bobby Short, who held court at the Cafe Carlyle for over 35 years, had a longer standing engagement in a single venue. Her shows weave together the life stories and memorable songs of golden age performers like Fred Astaire, Mabel Mercer and Ruth Etting in addition to songwriters like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern and Frank Loesser. Her new show “No Strings” runs through December 30.

Great American songbook? How about Smokey Robinson and Bill Withers?

Happy to hear Andrea included Paul Simon and other rock-era writers for the American Songbook. I cast my vote for Canadian Joni Mitchell.

Andrea, how about singing a Brian Wilson/Beach Boy song, like "God Only Knows"?
Nice! You just said you did!
