In the immortal words of Irving Berlin, Now It Can Be Told.
Although news of singer Sue Raney and pianist Alan Broadbent's appearance at NY's Feinstein's at the Regency this Fall (Nov 20 & 21) is already up on Sue's website, their upcoming gig at L.A.'s Vitello's has just been confirmed. . .and will be officially announced at SueRaneySRO.com in a day or two. Both dates (NY and L.A.) will find Sue performing her new CD, with Broadbent, entitled Listen Here. One show nightly at both venues. The date for Vitello's is Monday, April 25. That evening will also serve as a CD release party for the album. Soooo. . . .in addition to singing, Sue will also be signing and selling.
The CD, which draws its title from the lead-off tune, Dave Frishberg's "Listen Here," is the realization of an answer she gave to an interviewer a few years back.
Following hard on the heels of her big band (and then some) Doris Day tribute, Heart's Desire with Broadbent, when asked about her future goals, she replied, "I’d like to record a duet album with Alan." (Talk about your macro to micro!) And so, she has.
