“THE CHARMS ABOUT YOU / WILL CARRY ME THROUGH”: BECKY KILGORE and EHUD ASHERIE at MEZZROW (January 18, 2017)

There are any number of ways to sing this Irving Berlin song, and the same for piano accompaniment, but this duet thrills me: Rebecca Kilgore and Ehud Asherie at Mezzrow, almost five years ago. She glides; he rollicks. Singers and pianists, take note! Take notes!

Heaven, we’re in Heaven. Facebook pointed out to me that one year ago today I posted audio of Becky singing Berlin with James Dapogny. Spooky and delicious.

May your happiness increase!

    Great but where’s Ehud these days?

  2. I have enormous appreciation for your taste and wisdom, but feel I must gently point out that the Gershwins wrote “Embraceable You,”

  3. Thank you for the compliment, but I am quoting from CHEEK TO CHEEK, which Becky sings, written by Berlin. Gershwin’s CHARMS are “I love all the many charms about you,” and so on.

  4. Sorry!
    Now I’m eating humble pie.

    Wonderful! Next stop, Smalls archives for the entire set.
