Linda Eder- Songbirds: A Tribute To Great Female Vocalists.

The death of Jazz diva Etta James motivated Linda Eder to make the theme of her new show, which opened last evening at Feinstein’s at the Loew’s Regency, Songbirds: A Tribute to Great Female Vocalists. Ms. Eder who surely has one of the finest voices on the current cabaret scene pays tribute to among others songstresses Patsy Cline, Barbra Streisand, Lena Horne, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield. While Ms. Eder does not attempt to imitate their voices, she beautifully captures the essence of their singing.

The very beautiful Ms. Eder has a formidable stage presence and while her patter is limited, it is always to the point and often quite funny. Among the highlights of the evening was Ms. Eder’s bringing back Eva Cassidy’s best remembered song I Know You By Heart.

Linda Eder sang in her own voice to do Henry Mancini’s Charade and two numbers drawn from her appearance in the Broadway musical Jekyll and Hyde The unfortunate recent passing  of diva Whitney Houston, gave us a memorable and moving closing number when Ms. Eder reprised Whitney Houston’s version of Dolly Parton’s I Will Always Love You. She went off theme for her encore, by beautifully singing a song almost always sung by males, Man Of La Mancha.

Linda Eder will appear nightly at Feinstein’s at the Loew’s Regency at 540 Park Avenue until Saturday March 17.
