In honor of Bookstock and the theme of sharing many voices, Artistree presents a live concert with the internationally acclaimed Bloom/Funkhouser Duo (Peter H. Bloom, flute and John Funkhouser, piano), Celebrating Great Poets of the Great American Songbook. Audience members are invited to read the lyrics before each tune is played, and the musicians will respond with inventive musical interpretations – a fun and engaging way to experience the power of music and literature combined.
Hailed for “infectious brio” (The New York City Jazz Record) and called “master musicians” (CultureJazz.France), Peter and John will play a vibrant mix of up-tempo tunes and beguiling ballads, each piece notable for musical and literary panache. A few examples include: Sunny Side of the Street (lyrics by Dorothy Fields), It’s Only a Paper Moon (lyrics by Yip Harburg), Skylark (lyrics by Johnny Mercer), A Foggy Day in London Town (lyrics by Ira Gershwin), Georgia on My Mind (lyrics by Stuart Gorell), and Night and Day (music and lyrics by Cole Porter).
