Michael Feinstein at The Sage by Val and Jim

A beaming Michael Feinstein strode onto the stage to guide his audience through his 'Sinatra Project'. Two hours of beautifully performed songs from the Sinatra canon, backed by a 17 pce. band led by M.D. Billy Elliot ( no, not the dancer). Highlight of the night, apart from gems like 'Small Hotel' and 'My Romance', had to be 'Begin the Beguine' set in a Nelson Riddle style arrangement. ( think of 'under my skin'.) We were fortunate indeed to have such talent at the Sage. Lets hope a return visit is on the cards. Val & JIm
