Sean Harkness and Karen Oberlin will perform Billy Strayhorn’s songs, such as Take the A Train, Lush Life, and Something to Live For, along with lesser-known tunes from the worlds of jazz, theater & beyond, delicately blended with fascinating and illuminating stories told by Strayhorn’s biographer, David Hajdu.
“Astaire & Rogers, Tracey & Hepburn, Harkness & Oberlin – the kind of timeless, kismet collaboration worthy of becoming a classic” – Alix Cohen, WomanAroundTown.com
The New York Times ranked Lush Life: A Biography of Billy Strayhorn, by David Hajdu, one of the Hundred Best Nonfiction Books of All Time.
