Pete Malinverni at Feinstein's on July 10 and 11
Date Released: 7/1/2009
Pete Malinverni will be the music director and pianist for "Ron Kaplan Sings New York" at Feinstein's at the Loews Regency Hotel on July 10 and 11 featuring jazz vocalist Ron Kaplan.
Professor Malinverni, a Steinway Artist and New Yorker, will lead a five piece band in support of the vocal stylings of Ron Kaplan, a champion of the Great American Songbook. The cabaret evenings will feature classic songs distinctly and entirely about New York from Kaplan's latest CD by the same title.
Kaplan's songs reflect different eras and locations in the city in his musical tour around Manhattan from nightlife, to the cacophony of riding buses and subways, to Broadway. His vocal style is reminiscent of legends such as Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, Nat King Cole and Tony Bennett.
Prior to the concerts on July 9 at midnight, Malinverni will join Mr. Kaplan on the Joey Reynolds Show on WOR radio 710 AM in NYC.
