Ann Hampton Callaway is one of the leading champions of the great American Songbook, having made her mark as a singer, pianist, composer, lyricist, arranger, actress, educator, TV host and producer. Voted recently by Broadwayworld.com as “Performer of the Year,” Ann is a born entertainer. Her unique singing style that blends jazz and traditional pop, has made her a mainstay in concert halls, theaters and jazz clubs as well as in the recording studio, on television, and in film. Best known for her Tony-nominated performance in the hit Broadway musical Swing! and for writing and singing the theme song to the hit TV series “The Nanny,” Callaway is also a Platinum Award winning writer whose songs are featured on seven of Barbra Streisand’s recent CD’s. The only composer to have collaborated with Cole Porter, she has also written songs with Carole King, Rolf Lovland and Barbara Carroll to name a few.

Ann Hampton Callaway Sings Film Classics from The Great American Songbook is a celebration of the golden age of songwriters from the 30’s and 40’s who wrote love songs for the silver screen that gave people dreams when they needed them most. Exploring the fascinating ways jazz and film have come together to tell stories, the playlist includes such memorable tunes as, “Taking a Chance on Love” from Vernon Duke’s Cabin in the Sky, “Let’s Face the Music and Dance” from Irving Berlin’s Follow the Fleet, “This Time the Dream’s on Me,” from Harold Arlen’s Blues in the Night, and “As Time Goes By,” the Herman Hupfeld classic from Casablanca.
