Frank Sinatra Praises Jan Daleys Exceptional Smooth Jazz Music

In the words of the incredible Frank Sinatra, “She’s got it.”  And Jan Daley certainly does! From her success as Miss California to her USO Tours with Bob Hope to her phenomenal recently released smooth jazz albums Jan Daley certainly has what it takes.  When Sunny Gets Blue is a rendition of Great American Songbook tunes from the classic days of music.  She worked with the late Jack Segal for years to master the smooth jazz music- some of which he wrote.  Jan Daley’s praise doesn’t end here.  The great Louis Armstrong described Daley’s voice as, “big and beautiful” and as, “one of the best balanced talent blend on the boards,” by Variety.

 

A standout on her smooth jazz album is the title track (When Sunny Gets Blue).  Jan Daleys personal interpretation is intricate and reminiscient of the original in an incredibly beautiful way.  The years of work and personal connection with Jack Segal are clear. .

Visiting New York This Spring? Find the Best Events and Things to Do Including Broadway Shows to See

I am so glad that I found insider tips for my upcoming trip to New York City!  I’ve already made plans to see the Broadway Play “Lucky Guy” starring Tom Hanks at the Broadhurst Theater during my visit.  It was tough to decide on just one show as there are so many good plays on Broadway this spring like “Matilda the Musical” at the Shubert and “The Trip to Bountiful” at the Sondeim.

 

Over in Midtown West, again a tough choice, but I got tickets for “The Nance” at the Lincoln Center Theater.  The competition was stiff with other events like a 4 week run of a new play about the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti called “Three Trees” at the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre on the Upper West Side and also Debby Boone performing at the Café Carlyle.  I’m going to try to squeeze in (timewise and budgetwise) the musical mystery “Bunnicula” in Union Square at the DR2 Theater.

There are always a lot of great things to do in New York City, and it really helps to have insider tips when planning your visit.  I get my tips from TravelWithCarnet.com. If you want to be in-the-know on the best events in your favorite cities to visit, check out Travel With Carnet
