Synopsis

Amazon.com
Perhaps New York's greatest cabaret star, Andrea Marcovicci crosses the pond for this live 1996 performance with longtime pianist-collaborator Glenn Mehrbach. Marcovicci is often described as a singing actress--she has appeared on both stage and screen--and her interpretations are always dramatic, always tasteful, always eminently listenable. Her program is comprised of American love songs, from classic Rodgers and Hart to newer songs by Stephen Sondheim and William Finn, and Marcovicci occasionally adds informative or humorous patter ("It'll be about every kind of love imaginable ... but not too much true love. I am still essentially a torch singer, and for a torch singer, true love is an oxymoron. Besides, I wouldn't know what to wear.") It's hard to go wrong with any Marcovicci album, but hearing her in her element before a live audience is especially welcome. --David Horiuchi

Live in London -- Dead on Arrival
John Duffy | Gettysburg, Pennsylvania | 03/23/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"There are hints of the stylishness that has earned A. M. her reputation, and perhaps the audience for this live recording had a considerably different experience than I. But I can't join the applause for this performance, characterized by approximation of pitch (under and sometimes more under) and short-breathed phrases."
