BILLY STRITCH CY COLEMAN REVISITED
Billy Stritch returns to the Purple Room for a new show spotlighting the music of legendary tunesmith Cy Coleman. Hell be joined this time by a swinging jazz trio – all the better to perfectly celebrate one of Broadway and pop musics jazziest composers. The show will include Cys biggest pop hits (The Best Is Yet To Come, Witchcraft), songs from his Broadway shows (Sweet Charity, City Of Angels) and many undiscovered and unknown gems.
Cy Coleman was the composer of a dozen Broadway scores and a multitude of stand-alone pop songs in addition to being a world-class jazz pianist. It was Billys honor to meet Cy in 1991 and the two formed a friendship built on their mutual love of jazz and showbiz. Billy almost always includes one or two of Cys compositions in his shows and is excited to be creating an evening of this great material for the very discerning Palm Springs audience!
