In a new four-part series called This Is Cabaret, join host Ann Hampton Callaway to celebrate intimate performances and emotionally engaging songs from jazz, the blues, Broadway, the whole Great American Songbook. Special guests perform and share personal insights with Ann, live from the stage of the legendary Birdland Jazz Club in the heart of New York City. Throughout the series, Ann Hampton Callaway, the Queen of American Cabaret, holds court and engages some of the most interesting singers and songwriters, including Steve Tyrell, Christine Ebersole, Curtis Stigers, and Kurt Elling.

“In a world of increased alienation, an artistic experience of intimacy can be quite healing to the heart. A room full of strangers can feel like a family.” Ann Hampton Callaway 

“…superbly intelligent, singularly creative pop-jazz stylist who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Streisand, Ronstadt, Shirley Horn and Dianne Reeves…” – JazzTimes

“Callaway establishes herself as one of the best equipped jazz vocalists swinging today.” – Chicago Tribune

“For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
