JOSH GROBAN, AN EVENING IN NEW YORK CITY: A SOUNDSTAGE SPECIAL EVENT

Internationally renowned singer/songwriter Josh Groban Stars in his Third PBS Special DVD Available Now!

Taped at the Rose Theatre at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of “Jazz at Lincoln Center" in New York City, Josh Groban shares his unique voice with an intimate theatre audience for his third PBS special - JOSH GROBAN, AN EVENING IN NEW YORK CITY: A SOUNDSTAGE SPECIAL EVENT. This exhilarating performance includes such favorites as “Alla Luce del Sole," “You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)," and “February Song." The concert features guest appearances by trumpeter Chris Botti, who joins Groban in performing “Broken Vow,” and master musician Herbie Hancock, who plays the keyboard on “Machine.” This program is part of special programming airing on PBS stations in May and June 2009 (check local listings).

An internationally renowned performer who has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, Groban has thrilled a legion of devoted fans with his flawless baritone and extraordinary stage presence. The 28-year-old Los Angeles native first broke through in 2001 with his self-titled double-platinum debut, followed by 2003’s multi-platinum Closer and 2006’s double-platinum Awake. In 2007, Groban became the best-selling recording artist of the year thanks to sales of Awake and his blockbuster Christmas album Nol, which was nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award. In 2008, he released his third live recording, Awake Live, as well as A Collection, a double CD of hits culled from the course of Groban’s career, through Warner Music International. He is currently working on a new record with multi Grammy winning producer Rick Rubin.

The full range of Groban’s astonishing body of work comes to life in this one-hour concert special which showcases his versatility as an artist, writer and producer of many hit songs performed in the program. A full song list is available on PBS PressRoom (pbs.org/pressroom).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
