"Impeccable selection of songs, superb phrasing, a cumulative effect that guarantees a smile on every listener's face. Ample quantities of warmth, joy and intelligence. Rare, superb and thoroughly enjoyable!" The New York Observer
Lee Leesack's FROM MANHATTAN TO PARIS is a
musical journey of performances from the New York stage to the
Paris concert hall via just about every city in between and
features songs by some of Lessack's favourite artists such as Ann
Hampton Callaway, Stephen Sondheim, Charles Aznavour, Rodgers &
Hammerstein, Johnny Mercer, Frank Wildhorn, Gilbert Bécaud, Edith
Piaf and Simon & Garfunkel.
Lessack's graceful, lyrical baritone vocals and sophisticated, yet endearing persona have made him a shining star of the international cabaret scene. Billboard Magazine calls his singing "cabaret romanticism of a high order". Touring extensively in the United States and Europe to sold-out performances and releasing seven albums, Lessack has proven himself both as performer and recording artist. His MAC and Bistro Award Winning album In Good Company, features duets with such music notables as Michael Feinstein, Maureen McGovern, Amanda McBroom, Ann Hampton Callaway and Stephen Schwartz.
