The monthly celebration of cabaret's best CDs will be held at Dillon's Restaurant on Manhattan's West Side. Recordings chosen for this month's top honors include Loli Marquez-Sterling's "Loli: But Not Alone" and John DePalma's "The Song Is Mine" (LML Music). Both Marquez-Sterling and DePalma will be on hand to perform several tunes from their recordings. Acclaimed songwriter Francesca Blumenthal will also entertain at the 7 PM evening. The selected CDs will be played throughout the night (and the month to come) on the Dillon's sound system. Marquez-Sterling and DePalma will also autograph copies of their recordings for those wishing to purchase them that evening.
There is no cover or minimum for the CD evening, although reservations are recommended. Dillon's is located at 254 West 54th Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue; call (212) 307-9797. Doors open for dinner at 5:30 PM.
