According to a Marcovicci newsletter, Helen Marcovicci — who still boasts a textured, powerful belt — will celebrate her 90th birthday with a brand-new CD that will feature such tunes as "My Melancholy Baby," "The Twelfth of Never," "Autumn Leaves," "For All We Know," "In the Still of the Night" and "Blue Skies," among others. Andrea Marcovicci's new compilation disc will feature tunes from her early recordings as well as three brand-new tracks.
Release dates will be announced shortly; both discs will be available by visiting www.marcovicci.com.
Before the end of the year, Andrea Marcovicci will play the Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia, PA (Sept. 17-28); The Gardenia in Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 10 and 11); The Rrazz Room at Hotel Nikko in San Francisco, CA (Oct. 14-Nov. 2); the Singletary Center for the Arts in Lexington, KY (Nov. 8); and The Algonquin's Oak Room (Nov. 11-Dec. 27).
Andrea Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the short-lived musical Ambassador and in Frank D. Gilroy's Any Given Day. Her screen credits include roles in "The Front," "Someone to Love," "Jack the Bear," "Who Is Henry Jaglom?," "The Water Engine" and "Trapper John, M.D." It has been the cabaret stage, however, where she has received the most acclaim. The singer-actress has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and in concert halls throughout the world. Her solo albums are numerous and include "Marcovicci Loves Movies," "What Is Love?," "Just Kern," "December Songs," "New Words," "Live from London" and "Some Other Time."
