Nancy LaMott was beloved by fans for a voice that could be soft and sweet one minute and big and belty the next. Many critics agreed she also possessed a remarkable ability to find the emotional center of any song, bringing a lyric to life as honestly as possible. LaMott's solo recording credits included “Beautiful Baby,” “Come Rain or Come Shine: The Songs of Johnny Mercer,” “My Foolish Heart,” “Just in Time for Christmas” and “Listen to My Heart” as well as the posthumously issued “What’s Good About Goodbye?" Another posthumous recording, "Nancy LaMott—Live at Tavern on the Green," was issued earlier this year with additional releases scheduled.

The Duplex Cabaret Theatre is located at 61 Christopher Street. There is a $15 cover as well as a two-drink minimum. For reservations, call (212) 255 5438.
