Billy Stritch, the award-winning jazz pianist and arranger, has collaborated with some of the best singers in the history of American cabaret music. From Liza Minnelli to Christine Ebersole to Marilyn Mae, his list of professional partners is astoundingly long and varied, touching upon legend after legend. The pianist continues his history of rich collaborations Saturday, May 28 at the New Jersey Performing Center’s Chase Room where he will lead a program called Sinatra at the Movies. He will be joined by singers Carole J. Bufford and Marissa Mulder. Narrating and moderating the evening will be Will Friedwald, Sinatra biographer.
The yeti and sasquatch continue to populate legends and stories around the world. Some people are absolutely convinced of the existence of a “missing link,” a bipedal cousin of homo sapiens that lurks in wooded areas, high atop the Himalaya or deep in the swamps of the southern United States. Other people are absolutely convinced that bigfoot and the yeti are figments of the imagination; they often point to the lack of physical evidence in their debunking.
