The Early Set Welcomes Ann Hampton Callaway
Gabrielle Stravelli welcomes acclaimed vocalist, pianist and composer Ann Hampton Callaway to “The Early Set” this Wednesday, November 11, at 6PM EDT, to discuss her music and career. Callaway has distinguished herself as one of today’s most versatile artists, equally at home singing jazz standards, Broadway or classic rock, accompanying herself on piano or creating a completely improvised song on the spot. An accomplished songwriter, Ann is the only artist to have collaborated with Cole Porter, in addition to penning songs for greats like Barbra Streisand. She is also well-known for composing and performing the classic theme song for the TV show The Nanny. Most recently Ann released the CD Jazz Goes to the Movies and toured her Linda Ronstadt Songbook project throughout the US to rave reviews.
