“For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.” The New York Times

Ann Hampton Callaway is one of the finest singer/songwriters of our generation. The statuesque performer dazzles music lovers as a singer, pianist, composer, lyricist, arranger, actress, and educator. Her talents have made her equally at home in jazz and pop as well as on stage, in the recording studio, on TV, and in film. She is best known for her Tony-nominated performance in the hit Broadway musical “Swing!” and for writing and singing the theme to the internationally successful TV series, “The Nanny.” Callaway is a devoted keeper-of-the-flame of the Great American Songbook, bringing fresh and original interpretations to these timeless classics. She works to uphold the canon by writing songs with Cole Porter (posthumously), Carole King, Barbara Carroll, and others. Her spontaneity, intelligence, and soulful charisma have won her a diverse fan-base, including such notables as Barbra Streisand, Carly Simon, and Wynton Marsalis. For these special shows, Callaway pays tribute to the great Sarah Vaughan with song selections including “Like Someone In Love,” “Misty,” “There Will Never Be Another You,” “Chelsea Bridge,” “Night In Tunisia,” “Send In the Clowns,” and “Like A Lover.”

“From Sassy to Divine: A Celebration of Sarah Vaughan, was a meticulously constructed, deliberately paced program… at moments you could almost hear Vaughan coming through her.”  - Stephen Holden, The New York Times
