Robbie Rozelle: Songs from Inside My Locker

Robbie Rozelle Songs from Inside My Locker (Broadway Records) October 17, 2020 Reviewed by John Hoglund Robbie Rozelle is fearless; he goes where few cabaret singers would dare to go. When not directing or teaching, he's designing sophisticated graphics for Broadway Records, and with unbridled brio, this singer/comic pursues his childlike love of entertaining. Now, in his 40s (as he lets us know) and looking back on what might have been, he refers to himself as an “accidental performer” for various reasons. [ 1,234 more word ]

Cabaret Scenes and the American Songbook Association share in the sorrow of the cabaret community at the death of Rosamond Hirschorn (1921-2020). She was a solid supporter of all things cabaret and it was always a joy to see her in the audience, cheering on the performer. Her presence among us will surely be missed. Rest in peace!

Champian Fulton Birdsong October 3, 2020 Reviewed by John Hoglund Champian Fulton grew up loving Charlie Parker, one of the most influential jazz figures of the past 100 years. An alto sax virtuoso, he brought revolutionary harmonic innovations into jazz performances. These included fast-paced chord changes, altered chords, and chordal substitutions. A prodigy, he was known for plating passages that were both clean and somber. [ 479 more words ]
