ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The greatest cabaret star of her generation, she sings with a haunting tenderness that once heard is never forgotten.”
--Sheridan Morley, THE INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE

“Andrea Marcovicci has an incandescent enthusiasm and masterly balance between poignancy and wit.”
--THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Her seductive physical beauty is uncannily reflected in a lilting voice shot through with fire. Andrea Marcovicci - torch singer, spellbinder, heartbreaker is here to stay.”
--PEOPLE

“Andrea Marcovicci is at the top of her career, and she’s one of the few who can consistently fill a room with crowds searching for a bit of musical elegance.”
--VARIETY

ABOUT ANDREA MARCOVICCI: ABOUT ANDREA MARCOVICCI: Andrea Marcovicci, the Queen of Cabaret, "torch singer, spellbinder, heart-breaker" (People) was hailed as the "most Sinatra-like" of the new generation of cabaret performers by Life Magazine. She “has the capacity to caress a song with a warming embrace… Marcovicci steals the heart …the epitome of elegance and showbiz savvy,” declared Variety, while Stephen Holden wrote in The New York Times, "Andrea Marcovicci has an incandescent enthusiasm and a masterly balance between poignancy and wit."

Cabaret legend Andrea Marcovicci has entertained sold-out audiences from coast to coast whenever touring her numerous critically acclaimed shows. She holds the record for the most seasons ever played at New York's legendary Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel - twenty-five years - and is the final performer ever to perform there! She's also played to sold-out houses at the esteemed LICEU Opera House in Barcelona, at Town Hall in New York, and at her Carnegie Hall solo concert.

In 2005 Andrea released her very own Calendar replete with luscious photos and anecdotes of her life and career in television, film and theatre. An actress and singer, Andrea began on the daytime television series "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing". She debuted on Broadway in "Ambassador", the musical adaptation of the novel by Henry James, staring Howard Keel and last appeared on the Great White Way in Frank D. Gilroy's play "Any Given Day" with Sada Thompson. Her numerous appearances off-Broadway include "Coco" at the York Theatre, "The Wedding of Iphigenia", "Variety Obit", and "The Seagull". She performed Ophelia to Sam Waterston's Hamlet for Joseph Papp's Shakespeare in the Park. Regionally, she received rave reviews for leading roles in "St. Joan", "Burn This", and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" at the American Conservatory Theater, San Francisco and her most recent of many appearances at 42nd Street Moon, SF, (where Andrea had previously starred as Daisy in "On A Clear Day"), in the title role of "Coco", played to sold-out houses. In Los Angeles, she starred opposite Anthony Newley in "Chaplin", portraying all the legendary actor's wives and starred in the Philadelphia revival of "Lady in the Dark" at the Prince Music Theatre. Her film credits include: "The Front" (nominated for a Golden Globe Award) with Woody Allen, "The Hand" with Sir Michael Caine, "The Stuff" with Michael Moriarty, "Spacehunter" with Peter Strauss, "The Canterville Ghost" with Sir John Gielgud, Henry Jaglom's "Someone To Love" (featuring Orson Welles in his last film appearance), and "Jack the Bear", as Danny DeVito's wife. Her many television appearances include "General Hospital," "Arliss" for HBO, "Cybil", "Taxi", "Magnum P.I.", "Hill Street Blues", and "Trapper John, M.D.", among others and numerous made-for-television movies. She has appeared in two Henry Jaglom films - "Irene in Time" and "Someone to Love" for which she provided commentary for the DVD release.

Andrea was most honored to usher in the Millennium with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Her concert work includes appearances with the San Francisco Pops, Florida Philharmonic, and Oregon and Ft. Worth Symphonies among others. Her 1993 Carnegie Hall solo debut, with the American Symphony Orchestra, was to a sold-out audience. Prior to that, Carnegie Hall commissioned "December Songs" specifically created for Andrea by Maury Yeston. The concert was then reconceived as a ballet by Lynn Taylor Corbett and premiered with Andrea at The Carolina Ballet in 2002. Lincoln Center commissioned both her Noel Coward show and her "Kurt Weill in America". The latter was recreated for cast and appeared as part of the prestigious Lyrics & Lyricists series at the 92Y where Andrea has four times served as Guest Artistic Director and Director, and twice directed the "Cabaret Concert for Young Audiences" at the New York Cabaret Convention.

Enjoying the intimate art of cabaret performance, Andrea has appeared at numerous prestigious nightclubs throughout the country including the famed Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel in New York City, The Rrazz Room in San Francisco, Le Chat Noir of New Orleans, The Gardenia in Hollywood, and many others. Her London cabaret debut in 1994 sold out a one-month engagement at the Music Room at Pizza on the Park. Sheridan Morley, theater critic of The Spectator and The International Herald-Tribune, called her "the greatest cabaret star of her generation." Peter Hepple in The Stage and Television Today wrote, "Marcovicci cast her spell, with a voice of supreme tenderness, much rangier than at first appeared, with a thrillingly controlled vibrato, marvelous diction and phrasing that can only come from a skilled actress."

Andrea Marcovicci has performed at the White House and her numerous fundraising efforts have produced everything from building additions to aiding the disenfranchised. In recognition of her accomplishments in the arts, she is the recipient of several awards and honors including three Lifetime Achievement Awards and two honorary degrees.

I'll be seeing you
I've been loving Andrea as an actress, then I saw her at Hotel Algonquin's Oak Room years ago and I kind of fell in love with her, her talent, her voice, her smile. This album is beautiful and, through Andrea's voice, is touching my emotions.
Warm regards from Italy.

I'll Be Seing You
Another wonderful set of songs sung beautifully by Andrea. I wanted to hear her sing "The Last Time I Saw Paris", "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square", and "Speak Low". Excellent. Thanks to Andrea. And thanks to CDBaby for a CD in excellent condition. I received it in New York in two days from California. What service!

Andrea Marcovicci "I'll Be Seeing You"
When the greatest singer meets the greatest songs the result is the greatest cd ever! Andrea's wonderful voice is so hypnotic that one is transported back in time to the years of WWII. I'll Be Seeing You is as much a history lesson as it is pure listening pleasure! Thanks for the memories!

Michael Medved

Delightful
I was just introduced to Andrea Marcovicci's music by a friend in New York. I love the music from the World War II ear. A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square is my favourite song from the eara and I have never heard it sung better. I could (and have) listened to it over and over again. I am looking froward to hearing more of Andrea.
