Theme Programs

Daryl At Duke’s Place

“From the very first downbeat as JazzRadio/Berlin describes ‘audiences are wooed by heart-tingling, toe tapping Ellington repertoire from Daryl Sherman, not only a wonderful singer but also a world class jazz pianist.’ Her singing, swinging approach to the master songwriter, bandleader, arranger and pianist is sprinkled with anecdotes, instrumental solos and creative vocal interpretations. The program ranges from beloved hits like Satin Doll, Perdido, Sophisticated Lady to Ellington rareties like Reflections in D, Tulip Or Turnip (a tribute to Ray Nance) and Swingtime In Honolulu from a Cotton Club Revue. Echoes of the artful simplicity of Mildred Bailey with added fillips of Billie Holiday… delighting in the pure pleasure of singing and swinging breezily… these qualities are evident in Daryl Sherman’s engaging Ellington tribute.”

— Stephen Holden, New York Times


DeLovely/A Cole Porter Songfest

“Sitting at the Steinway piano Cole Porter kept in his suite when he lived at the Waldorf Astoria, Daryl Sherman (longtime performer in residence) upholds the tradition with a cheeky insouciance New Yorkers relish.”

— Seattle Times ‘Best of 2004’ list

“With the recently touted Porter biopic, filmed in UK and chock full of pop stars singing classics like Night And Day and You’re The Top, the rarefied world of this iconic songwriter now appeals to an even wider, younger audience. Easy to love, Sherman’s creative samplings reveal many sides and moods from naughty, mischevious and clever to unabashedly romantic. What a swell party this is! Get Out Of Town, and a medley of great standards (from 1935 show Jubilee) Why Shouldn’t I, Just One Of Those Things and Begin The Beguine — illustrated the empathy she has with her favourite composer and precision of a tight-knit trio… delightful… polished.”

— Jack Massarik, Evening Standard


A Hundred Million Miracles/The music of Richard Rodgers

“One of the world’s greatest songwriters with equal appeal in the world of jazz and theater Daryl Sherman offers a welcome change from same old-same old compilations of Rodgers classics. With touching new insight to the chestnut Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered or fervently swinging with lesser known Do It The Hard Way (also from Pal Joey) Sherman and her empathetic musical cohorts put a new spin on everything. This wholly admirable singer is ideally suited to the composer’s inventive melodies. The lyrics, be they witty Hart or romantic Hammerstein offer numerous opportunities for her interpretive gifts.”

— Bruce Crowther, Jazz Journal International

“I enjoyed your unique arrangements and interpretations… you made everything freshly minted.”

— Michael Feinstein

“In Sherman’s imaginary world, Rodgers and Hart are still scribbling furiously, Duke Ellington is on the road again and 52nd street still has plenty of life left in it… A touch of class… irresistible”

— Clive Davis, London Times
