Every Tuesday, LML is pleased to present an Album of the Week. If this is the first week you’re joining us, please check out Shine: Lullabies for Everyone by Suzanne Jamieson Selmo, Easy Come, Easy Go by Linda Kosut, and Spirits of the Air by Brian Asawa and Diana Tash. We’re incredibly proud of all of these releases!
This week, we look at something a little more close to home and from our very own Lee Lessack.
3 Men and a Baby… Grand! Salute the Rat Pack. is a cracker of an album with a “pace [that] never lets up.” Broadway and Recording Artists, Brian Lane Green, Lee Lessack, and Johnny Rodgers join voices in 3 Men and a Baby… Grand! Salute the Rat Pack. Recorded LIVE during their engagement at Founders Hall at Orange County Performing Arts Center, their harmonies are incredible and individually each one brings star-power to the stage.
Here’s a review from TalkinBroadway.com:
“Passing through New York with their Rat Pack Show, the amusingly titled group 3 Men and a Baby Grand played at the Metropolitan Room last week and made a strong impression. The trio made it clear from the start that they were not going to impersonate Frank, Dean and Sammy. It was their intention to simply celebrate those pop icons by singing some of the songs that they made famous. Based on that agenda, they did not disappoint.
The show is fast-paced, light fun and full of the tightest, most beautiful harmonies you are likely to hear in a cabaret club. To be blunt, it is far superior to any other rat pack show we’ve seen so far.”
