“…a theatrical delight. Jeff Harnar is unquestionably one of our best.”
A Collective Cy: Jeff Harnar Sings Cy Coleman
New Album! Release Date: September 7, 2023
PS CLASSICS, the label dedicated to the heritage of Broadway and American Popular Song, will present the new album from multi-award-winning concert artist Jeff Harnar – A Collective Cy: Jeff Harnar Sings Cy Coleman – on CD and digital formats on Friday, September 8. Harnar brings his exuberance, interpretive acumen and “voice that out-Sinatras Sinatra” (BroadwayWorld) to bear on a titan of popular song whose work won multiple Tony, Grammy and Emmy awards over a six-decade career. Adapted from an award-winning stage show, A Collective Cy represents 40 years of Harnar’s fruitful collaboration with music director Alex Rybeck. Here Rybeck conducts a full orchestra with charts arranged specifically for this recording, which works its witchcraft on 17 Coleman songs, from classics to lesser-known gems. In addition, the album includes special guest vocalists Ann Hampton Callaway, Liz Callaway, Nicolas King, and Danny Bacher (who also solos on saxophone), along with featured guitarist Sean Harkness. A Collective Cy is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
