The show will be a collection of tunes from his latest CD, New York which pays tribute to one of the worlds most colorful and distinctive cities, New York. The show, which will also feature Steinway Artist Pete Malinverni as musical director, runs at Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
For his show at Feinstein’s Kaplan will perform a wide array of New York City–themed songs from the world of Broadway ranging from Leonard Bernstein’s “New York, New York” to the Harry Warren and Al Dubin classic “Lullaby of Broadway” to the lesser known Rogers and Hart gem, “Give it Back To The Indians.” “Although I am from California,” says Kaplan, “every time I go to New York City I am always struck by the energy, excitement and exuberance of the place. It’s the jazz capitol of the world. It’s the home of Broadway theatre, Tin Pan Alley, and countless legendary songwriters over the past century. It is one of the few cities in the world that has had many, many songs written about it. The difficulty wasn’t finding New York-themed songs, but deciding which ones to sing.” The program will also feature such jazz standards as Billy Strayhorn’s “Take the ‘A’ Train” and the Cotton Club standard, “Harlem Nocturne” performed with Earle Hagen’s seldom heard lyrics.
