Jazz Meets Broadway

Jazz Meets Broadway

“For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.”

            –Stephen Holden, The New York Times




“Callaway establishes herself as one of the best equipped jazz vocalists swinging today.”

            – Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune



“Astonishing.”

            – LA Weekly



“…superbly intelligent, singularly creative pop-jazz stylist who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Streisand, Ronstadt, Shirley Horn and Dianne Reeves…”

            – Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes



"Great is one of the most over-used words in the dictionary but just as Ella Fitzgerald was the greatest jazz singer of her era, so too is the magnificent Ann Hampton Callaway of hers."

            - Musical Theatre Review
Monday July 20, 2020 at 8:00PM

Back by popular demand, Tony-nominated Broadway and jazz star Ann Hampton Callaway returns with her acclaimed show "Jazz Meets Broadway." Cabaret Scenes Magazine wrote of the NY premiere, "Callaway explores the crossroads of jazz and show tunes and expertly illuminates the nuances in these lyrics with such dexterity that lines that have been heard a multitude of times before sound completely new...her newest showing only cements her supreme storytelling ability and flair as a detective of the human spirit...Jazz Meets Broadway is a class act all around and Callaway, as usual, is a cabaret act of the highest order.” Ranging from sizzling to sultry, songs will include Old Devil Moon, It Never Entered My Mind, Whatever Lola Wants, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Somewhere and Ann’s famous improv where audience members will help her compose a jazzy show tune about how two lovers meet in Cape May. Not to be missed!

The only composer to have collaborated with Cole Porter, she has also written songs with Carole King, Rolf Lovland and Barbara Carroll to name a few.

Callaway's live performances showcase her warmth, spontaneous wit and passionate delivery of standards, jazz classics and originals. She is one of America's most gifted improvisers, taking words and phrases from her audiences and creating songs on the spot, whether alone at a piano or with a symphony orchestra. Ann has been a special guest performer with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall and Tanglewood and is featured at many of the Carnegie Hall tributes. She has sung with more than thirty of the world's top orchestras and big bands, and has performed for President Clinton in Washington, D.C. and at President Gorbachev's Youth Peace Summit in Moscow. Callaway performed with her sister, Broadway star Liz Callaway, in their award-winning show Sibling Revelry at London's Donmar Warehouse. Their act "Boom!," a critically acclaimed celebration of the baby boomer hits of the 60's and 70's, was recorded on PS Classics which debuted in the top 25 on Billboard Jazz.

Ann's dream of working in film, TV and radio has been realized in several recent projects. She made her feature film debut opposite Angelina Jolie and Matt Damon in the Robert De Niro film "THE GOOD SHEPHERD", performing the standard "Come Rain or Come Shine". She recorded "Isn't It Romantic?" and "The Nearness of You" in Wayne Wong's "LAST HOLIDAY", starring Queen Latifah. Ann wrote songs for the upcoming movie musical "STATE OF AFFAIRS", to be directed by Philip McKinley. And, as a part of her mission to keep the American Songbook thriving, she has produced and hosted two TV specials Called "Singer's Spotlight With Ann Hampton Callaway" with guests Liza Minnelli and Christine Ebersole for WTTW National which dovetailed into her critically acclaimed radio series "This is Cabaret" which debuted in 2016.

Ann devotes much of her time to philanthropic causes, both as a singer performing in numerous benefits, and as a songwriter composing songs in times of need. In September 2005, Ann performed her original composition "Let the Saints Come Marching", written to honor Hurricane Katrina victims, on a national TV broadcast on the Fox News Channel. Her song "Who Can See the Blue the Same Again?" was released earlier in 2005 as a single, paying tribute to the tsunami survivors and raising much needed money for The Tsunami Fund of The PRASAD Project. In the aftermath of September 11th, Ann composed the stirring anthem, "I Believe in America", which she performed on Larry King Live and released as a CD single. Just days after the tragedy, Ann heard an 8,000 year old prayer from the Rig Veda and composed the world renowned "Let Us Be United". Ann recorded the song with Kenny Werner, The Siddha Yoga International Choir and five-year-old Sonali Beaven, who sang in honor of her father who lost his life on Flight 93. It was released on CD and DVD and its proceeds continue to benefit Save the Children and The PRASAD Project.

Her new CD, Jazz Goes To The Movies, was released on Shanachie Entertainment and debuted at #12 on the Billboard Jazz Chart.

Ann's father was Chicago's legendary TV and radio journalist, John Callaway. Her mother, Shirley Callaway, was a superb singer, pianist and one of New York's most in-demand vocal coaches.

Ann lives by the creed best expressed in the Andre Gide quote: "Art is the collaboration between God and the artist and the less the artist does, the better."
