“After hearing the Callaways and the ISO perform "Some People," I wanted to hear a full concert version of "Gypsy." After "My Heart is So Full of You," I wanted a fully ISO-ed "The Most Happy Fella." A snippet of "Bosom Buddies" made me want to hear Ann and the ISO do all of "Mame."”
“The singer Ann Hampton Callaway wasn't always the pop-blues wailer who brought the house to its feet on Friday evening at Carnegie Hall, where the New York Pops orchestra celebrated the centennial of the songwriter Johnny Mercer. Her rendition of "Blues in the Night," with a lusty full-bodied arrangement by Harold Wheeler, gave this lament by Mercer and Harold Arlen the kind of top-to-bottom vocal coverage that few singers have the technical resources to deliver. Her performance demonstrated that it is possible for a singer who really works at it - Ms. Callaway started out as a polite piano-bar balladeer with an inclination toward the lachrymose - to reinvent herself. Her softer side emerged in a fluid, immaculately intoned "Skylark," the meditation by Mercer and Hoagy Carmichael on a songbird in flight that some believe to be Mercer's most poetic reflection.”
“This show ranked with the very best evenings of entertainment I have ever enjoyed in NYC (and I have spent a lot of evenings in a lot of theaters there)! My husband and I were blown away by the Callaway sisters talent, the pacing of the show and OMG, the music we heard. AMAZING! We would "sell the farm" if we had the opportunity to see this show again... damn near anywhere in the USA!”
“This tribute to the boomers music of the 60's and 70's, celebrated the soundtrack of sisters and Tony-nominated actresses, Liz and Ann Hampton Callaway's childhood with unforgettable songs from the 60s and 70s. ”
“Ann’s expansive “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” her gospel rendition of “Blowin’ in the Wind” and a slow-burning “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” lifted these songs to expressive heights rarely attained by any singer.”
