Tony Bennett and Bill Evans - The Legendary Recordings will be performed by pianist Joel Zelnik, with Grammy nominee vocalist and Edgewater resident Annette Sanders on Monday, August 21,2017 at 6:30 pm at the Edgewater Public Library.

This timely program is based on the dialogues between Joel Zelnik and Bill Evans, a seven-time Grammy award winner, at the “Village Gate” in NYC, during the mid-1960’s. Signature Evans works are performed and Joel plays pieces that show the Evans influence. Highlighted is the collaboration of Bill Evans and Tony Bennett.

This remarkable collaboration of American Art Song is a beautiful surprising repertoire – no Gershwin, no Ellington, no blues. They’re mostly songs associated with great female singers such as Mabel Mercer and Billie Holiday, as well as Bill Evans’ own “Waltz For Debby” with Gene Lees’ lyrics.

Annette is a Grammy nominee with 5 CDs. She has sung with Benny Goodman, Mel Torme and Antonio Carlos Jobim. She was the featured vocalist in Dick Hyman’s Jazz Series at the 92nd Street Y, and also performed in the Billy Taylor Jazz Series at Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Her distinctive recognizable sound has been heard on thousands of jingles, movie soundtracks, and CDs.
