Feinstein
Quote:WCT: How do you decide on a set list for Ravinia?

MF: The first thing we decided on was using a big band for this gig, because it's so much fun to work with a big band. It's justified with the setting for Ravinia, the size of the place and it's acoustically spectacular. I started working on a repertoire that's a combination of Great American Songbook and Broadway. There will be some contemporary music, meaning dipping into the catalogue of Carole King and James Taylor. There was a second wave of classic American songs with these artists.

We have the incredible addition of Haley Reinhart. Christine Ebersole was supposed to do the engagement, but she got a television series and had to cancel. I was flummoxed by that. Christine is a dear friend and she was upset by that. She is from Winnetka and was looking forward to a reunion with friends.

It occurred to me that maybe Haley would be interested. I have admired her work from afar with videos of Postmodern Jukebox. She performed with Jeff Goldblum down the street from me in L.A. I was thrilled when she said yes. She can sing anything from pop songs to standards.

Feinstein:
Quote:"It's the first time I'm performing with Haley Reinhart, whom I've admired," he said. "Her singing is classic ... She's got great vocal ability... We've hit it off in our preparation for the show."

Feinstein will be accompanied by a 17-piece band in concert.

Haley:
Quote:JN: Have you met Michael Feinstein before?

HR: I actually have not. We have spoken on the phone and we have gotten some ideas together. He’s been so kind to ask me to join him on this show. I don’t know if he knew I was from Chicago and how much this would mean to me. This is like playing the Hollywood Bowl on the West Coast. It’s phenomenal that this all worked out.

JN: Are you learning songs to perform with him?

HR: No. We are just discussing a couple of duets and he’s very open to my input on them. He’s such a cool guy. It’s always great to work with someone who is open minded to trying new things and I’m the same way. Michael has been a joy.

N: Macy Gray just her version of that song at Chicago’s big gay street festival. Are you going to play any of your new music?

HR: Yes. I am looking to do the first song I released from that album “Don’t Know How to Love You.” I have the original version and I also went to Vienna and recorded it with a 90 piece orchestra, so I have had a friend take them both and combine them a bit in case I sing it with the band at Ravinia. We will see. It might be spontaneous when we get onstage to rehearse it.

Michael Feinstein is selling his 15,391-square-foot mansion has views of Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean coastline.
Quote:“After more than 20 happy years in this house, this is a bittersweet move for us,” Feinstein told Town & Country magazine. “We’ve purchased another historic home in Pasadena, which we’re busy renovating and restoring.”

Paid $2.5M. Tried to sell it last year for $26M. Now listed at $15M.

Somewhat difficult to decipher this. Does she already know most of the songs? Is she only going to perform a couple of duets with him? Is he going to throw out much of what he originally planned and go instead with classic songs Haley knows?

Just seems weird they apparently haven't rehearsed together. At least not much.

His act is singing "The Great American Song Book" and I'm sure Haley had to learn alot of those songs from her days performing Jazz w/ her HS band.  I expect she'll go through the songs he normally does w/ the singer she stepped in for and do those songs.  I wouldn't be surprised if they try out "Don't Know How to Love You" w/ the band

Feinstein focuses a lot on songs by George and Ira Gershwin -- Ira kind of took him under his wing back in the 1970s (discussed in the video I posted above).  Gershwin songs have been covered by eveybody -- Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaugan, Amy Winehouse, Barbra Streisand, Julie Andrews, Lady Gaga, Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, Willie Nelson, Judy Garland, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Annie Lennox, The Zombies, Janis Joplin, Nina Simone, Lana Del Rey, Linda Ronstadt etc.  Ella Fitzgerald covered many Gershwin songs.

These songs are right in Haley's wheelhouse.





And, of course, Carole King and James Taylor are also right up her alley.

Haley sang 6 songs after Michael started the show with 3. Her 1st was a duet with Michael "My Baby Just Cares For Me. 2nd (solo with orchestra) was Dream A Little Dream Of Me" 3rd was "Cry Me A River" 4th was Can't Help Falling In Love" 5th was "Don't Know How To Love You". After intermission Michael sang about a dozen songs then for the finale' he brought Haley back on stage for a duet of "Come Rain Or Come Shine". 
The No-Video police were in full force around us at Ravinia as Barb & Penny were both caught and told repeatedly "no filming" but I was more discrete holding the camera against my chest and looking innocent as I recorded. That's why this starts out rather non-discript until I zoomed in as Haley got into the classic "Can't Help Falling In Love"
