The Salon Wrap-up for December 13, 2015 - "Songs From The Movies"

Greetings, Salon family! Tonight we were treated with: "Songs From The Movies" and guest artist Daryl Glenn and his music director Karen Dryer. They had us remembering his show "Nashville" which will reprise this week. Daryl, a Bistro, MAC & Nightlife Award Winner : will be appearing this week with Jo Lynn Burke singing Robert Altman’s NASHVILLE at Feinstein’s/54 Below – 25 West 54th St, 10019 – on December 16th at 7pm & December 17th at 7pm. For more information:

His selections included:

"Pure Imagination"- From Willy Wonka

Kiss at The End of the Rainbow-"Mighty Wind" -with Karen on vocals and piano

Theme From "Mahogany"-solo Karen singing and playing

Rainbow Connection-From The Muppet Movie

It Don't Worry Me

Our Salon Spotlights: Teresa Eggersten-Cooke, visiting from Park City, Utah, accompanying herself beautifully singing "The Rose". Then Mark played for her as she sang: The Italian translation of a song from the film "Cinema Paradiso" and finished with her '20 dollar song': "Send In The Clowns". She made it her own... Teresa appeared last night at The Metropolitan Room. Follow her on Facebook, YouTube and at So sorry I missed her show.

Quick Wrap: Classical Corner was Len Cariou's surprise appearance-see below.

Len Cariou- (Broadway's original Sweeney Todd among other inaugural roles), was our second very special guest singer, singing highlights from his "Broadway and The Bard" show, singing his opening and closing numbers. Can't wait to see it as he wonderfully pairs sonnets and soliloquy with songs apropos to the text. BRUSH UP YOUR SHAKESPEARE!
