Brian Stokes Mitchell: Plays With Music
Brian Stokes Mitchell “brings an unprecedented fusion of theatrical heroism, pop-jazz sizzle and emotional vulnerability … Emotional risks abound … (his) performances sustain a mood of vaulting exhilaration.” - The New York Times
Broadway’s leading baritone Brian Stokes Mitchell returns home with his new album, Plays With Music.
Featuring a wide variety of show tunes ranging from Irving Berlin to an unrecorded Stephen Sondheim song, Tony Award-winner Brian Stokes Mitchell approaches each song as its own mini-play, leaving his indelible mark on such classics as “I Won’t Send Roses,” “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “Getting Married Today“ and the world premiere of a terrific new song called “A Wizard Every Day”. Produced by Stokes, and featuring a lush orchestra that include his own arrangements and orchestrations, Plays With Music transports the listener to the imaginative world of Brian Stokes Mitchell.
