The legendary Christine Ebersole and Billy Stritch bring their acclaimed live performance to disc on their latest CD, 'Sunday in New York.' Set for May 13th release on Ghostlight Records, the jazzy new vocal album was produced by Grammy Award winner Russ Titelman (Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon,) and features 13 tracks ranging from Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Surrey With The Fringe On Top" to Stephen Sondheim's "Not While I'm Around." The collection was culled from material the pair arranged for one of their many Birdland appearances. In a recent review of their performance at Lincoln Center, The New York Times' Stephen Holden commented: "Ms. Ebersole, a bright, zany soprano and ebullient clown, can whirl on a dime and in a show like "Grey Gardens" evoke an inexpressible sorrow under a facade of garrulous pluck. When she adds a spinning vibrato to her lemony voice, she can turn into a playful latter-day Kathryn Grayson or Jeanette MacDonald, which she began to do on Friday during "The Surrey With the Fringe on Top." Mr. Stritch, a pop-jazz pianist, gifted arranger and Liza Minnelli protégé with a photographic musical memory...is a solid exponent of the gregarious, swinging Las Vegas style epitomized by Steve Lawrence."
