Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs: Live at the Cafe Carlyle

15.95

Alan Cumming's second full length album was recorded live at NYC's famed Café Carlyle. Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs is a collection of songs from the theater and pop world. Backed by Lance Horne on piano, Eleanor Norton on cello and Chris Jego on drums, Alan offers up an array of songs that have deep meaningful connection to his life. From Annie Lennox's "Why" and Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" to Elaine Stritch's "Ladies Who Lunch" (from Company) and Rufus Wainwright's "Dinner At Eight", Cumming doesn't just perform these songs he gently caresses and molds them into something even more intimate. His version of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" is as warm and heart-felt as you're ever going to hear. Sings Sappy Songs is successful on so many levels, yet it is the emotion in every performance that brings it all together. If there was a Grammy Award for sincerity and passion, then Alan would have yet another trophy to add to his collection.
