Synopsis:

 

Ann Hampton Callaway is one of the finest singer/songwriters of our generation.  The statuesque performer dazzles music lovers as a singer, pianist, composer, lyricist, arranger, actress, and educator.  She is best known for starring in the hit Broadway musical “SWING!”.  She brings fresh and original interpretation to these timeless classics and works to uphold the canon by writing songs with Cole Porter, Carole King, Barbara Carroll and others.

 

The New York Times writes, “For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway”. While her voice teachers suggested she could have a career in opera, Ann eventually realized that she would be happier singing the music she most loved. Artist that inspired her were Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder. 

 

After receiving advice from legendary pianist and mentor George Shearing, she began stepping away from the piano and started performing with some of the finest musicians in jazz, refining her ability to scat, swing and inhabit a song.  Today she travels with her  musical director, Ted Rosenthal. 

 

Ann has become a favorite in the jazz and pops concert.  Her performances in the Carnegie Hall tributes to Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Harold Arlen were memorable and show-stopping.  She performed for President Clinton in Washington D.C. and was the invited guest performer for President Gorbachev’s Youth Peace Summit in Moscow.  Recently, she returned to Moscow for a sold-out engagement with Russian jazz star Igor Butman at Le Club.

 

She has composed over 250 songs for television, Broadway, off-Broadway and several of today’s leading interpreters of songs.  Her  music and lyrics have been performed and recorded by Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Patti Lupone, Michael Feinstein, Blossom Dearie, Peter Nero, Karrin Allyson, Donna McKechnie, Harvey Fierstein, Lillias White, Barbara Carroll, Amanda McBroom, Liz Callaway and Carole King herself.
