How many jazz tunes have the words “moon and stars” in them? I don’t know, but it’s a whole heck of a lot, and myself and Erica Corbo decided to see if we could make an evening-length show out of the ones that made us literally sing and dance. (Night and Day, Buffalo Gals, Dream a Little Dream, Central PA, When You Wish Upon a Star in 7/8, to name a few). We discovered we really liked the vibe of duet tap and piano. Sentimental/romantic/cynic or all three? You decide. Touring it around the city allowed it to grow into a couple of new projects: Swing Two and Swing Three, with Tim Price. Erica also signed on as our music director in 2018.
