Let’s hear it for the boys! More than 25 years after Melissa Manchester released Tribute, her 1989 album that honored the great female singers who influenced her, she turns the tables with The Fellas, a radiant new encomium to the men, including Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett, and Dean Martin, and the iconic songs they made famous. Singing with a verve and emotional vulnerability that immediately captivates, the Grammy winner inventively reimagines these beloved classics of popular music, celebrating both their superb writing and their masterful original performers. She turns “Chances Are” into a sly bossa nova and scats with seemingly impossible ease on “Love Is Just Around The Corner,” while bringing an understated urgency to “Night and Day.”
Fans can expect to hear these lush new arrangements in salutes to both the men and the ladies of song, as well as several of Melissa’s own classic hits. Feinstein’s/54 Below is delighted to welcome back this celebrated songstress for four very special performances only.
