LEVI BARCOURT, MUSICAL DIRECTOR
EXCLUSIVE TWO-WEEK ENGAGEMENT
APRIL 26 - MAY 7
New York, NY (4/8/11) – The Carlyle Hotel (Erich Steinbock, Managing Director) is pleased to welcome Tony Award-winner (Purlie) Melba Moore to the legendary Café Carlyle in her debut engagement. Beginning Tuesday, April 26 (and playing through Saturday, May 7), Ms. Moore will present a program entitled Forever Moore, in which the 4-time Grammy Award nominee will reach into the Great American Songbook for some early influences, pass through her hit-making 70’s (she was a “Best New Artist” Grammy nominee in 1971) and then open it up with a treasure trove of seminal R&B touchstones, culminating with her current hit “Love Is.” Ms. Moore will also pay tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne and Aretha Franklin, the sophisticated ladies whose profound influences on her art and career she both acknowledges and celebrates. She will be accompanied by a band led by her musical director Levi Barcourt.
The Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle Hotel – 35 East 76th Street at Madison Avenue.
