Jazz at Lincoln Center Launches Jazz & Popular Song Series with ETHEL WATERS: BLUES, BROADWAY & JAZZ Tomorrow May 1


Jazz at Lincoln Center will produce Ethel Waters: Blues, Broadway, and Jazz as part of the second season of the Jazz & Popular Song series. Hosted by singer-pianist Michael Feinstein, who also serves as Director for the series, this concert celebrates the decades-spanning career of entertainer Ethel Waters.  Waters was a singular performer who conquered Broadway, nightclubs, movies, television and radio. At one time, she was the highest-paid entertainer on Broadway. She was a major player in the introduction of jazz to a broader American market, but her influence on the very nature of jazz itself cannot be overstated. Joining Feinstein onstage will be Tony Award-winner Adriane Lenox and musical director Tedd Firth in this unique concert to celebrate both the personal history of Ethel Waters and her importance to America’s musical culture.
