Go into the recording studio with two-time Tony Nominee Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!, Big Fish) as she lays down vocals for the title track of the new album All The Possibilities: Broadway Sings Wartofsky. You can watch our exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Baldwin's performance above.
Joining Baldwin on the album are Broadway favorites Farah Alvin (It Shoulda Been You), Darius de Haas (Shuffle Along), Annie Golden (Violet), Aisha Jackson (Frozen), Marcus Paul James (In the Heights), Michael Roberts McKee (Mamma Mia!), Daniel Quadrino (Newsies, Wicked), Shayna Steele (Hairspray), Katie Thompson (Giant), Allie Trimm (13), and Alysha Umphress (On the Town).
All the Possibilities showcases 11 original songs by Berklee songwriting professor Michael Wartofsky.
“My goal was for this album to pulsate with humanity,” explains Wartofsky. “Sonically, the tracks are unified as much by rhythmic guitar as much as by the piano. In addition to the percussion, strings and horns, I hope this gives the album a contemporary songwriter vibe.”
The album, from Yellow Sound Label, also features music direction by Broadway conductor and Berklee faculty member Eric Stern (Shrek, Parade), with arrangements by Wartofsky, Jeri Sykes, and several recent Berklee alums. Concord Theatricals President Sean Patrick Flahaven is the album's producer.
Wartofsky's additional musicals include Car Talk: The Musical!!! and Cupcake, both of which saw productions in Boston in 2012, and The Man in My Head which was presented at the 2006 New York Musical Theatre Festival.
