Bring someone you love to see the tribute show “Ella Loves Gershwin” starring Tammy McCann at Moraine Valley Community College September 17, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn & Suites Hotel at Midway!
In 1959, the great orchestral arranger Nelson Riddle and jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald teamed up to produce a five-album salute, “Ella Fitzgerald Sings the George and Ira Gershwin Songbook.” Ira Gershwin, who lived long enough to participate in the album commented that he had, “never heard how good our songs were until I heard Ella sing them.”
Come hear how noted Chicago jazz singer Tammy McCann, one of today’s premiere jazz stylists, brings her one-of-a-kind voice to these classic love songs. Firmly rooted in the tradition of the great singers of the past, but with her own modern flair. McCann’s sensitivity and her artistry are brilliantly on display as she conjures up a time when great singing was in the service of romance.
“A voice that soars in all registers, at all tempos, at all occasions…a voice that inspires wonders.” Chicago Tribune
