WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From such popular standards as "Witchcraft" and "Young at Heart" to Broadway's Little Me and Peter Pan, legendary lyricist Carolyn Leigh has an enduring legacy of smart, sophisticated and often sexy songwriting. Unsung Carolyn Leigh highlights the Tony- and Grammy-nominated icon's little-known works, including several jazz-infused items from her acclaimed 1969 Gatsby score, a cut song from How Now Dow Jones, and two numbers written with Marvin Hamlisch for the original, unproduced version of Smile. Ten dynamic performers, a sizzling trio of musicians and over twenty melodic gems color the intimate evening, which also features rare audio clips from two of Ms. Leigh's original demo recordings.
