Melissa Errico is a Broadway Baby, Billy Stritch, who can frankly do most anything musical, a Jazz Man. The premise of this loosey goosey collaboration is that Errico wants to learn jazz. The result- arrangements and instrumental parentheses often lean towards jazz, while vocals remain songbook based. As the pianist/MD is a craftsman, there’s neither conflict nor dissonance.

Following a wildly successful live stream during the fall of 2020, Broadway star and singer Melissa Errico will be "returning" to perform at Mercyhurst's Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center before embarking on a tour that starts in San Francisco and ends in London. If her name sounds familiar, it might not only be because of her widely publicized dramatic talents; the Tony Award-nominated actress is also an author and a regular contributor to The New York Times.
Melissa Errico isn’t a jazz singer, but for the past two decades she was the vocalist of choice for Michel Legrand and Stephen Sondheim, collaborating with both composers on various recordings, projects, and stage productions. She knows her way around a lyric. Her new album Out of the Dark is a pandemic project that focuses on material ostensibly written for or inspired by film noir.

<Narrator, over a lonely sax riff> It was a cold, dark night, when the dame called. “The band is ready. There’ll be a ticket with your name. The man at the door will let you in. Don’t say a word. Just take the case.” Sure, I knew it could be trouble. But I never could resist a beautiful dame in a glittery black dress to die for, wearing… furry slippers?
GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS has announced the new release from renowned singer, actress and author Melissa Errico, the compelling new studio album, Out Of The Dark: The Film Noir Project on Friday, February 18. At the height of the pandemic in 2020, when the world was locked away in lonely rooms with only old movies to watch at midnight, Errico suddenly returned to one of her life-long obsessions – noir! The genre is noted for its dark, disturbing sensibility of intractable fatalism that Paris existentialists discovered in American film during the 1940’s. Noir continues to run as a mesmerizing, mysterious current through modern movies and music, and Errico has embraced it in her own artistic endeavors. She recently co-curated a film festival of noir classics at New York’s French Institute Alliance Française, wrote an essay in The New York Times about having a black-sequined gown specially made to play the role of the femme fatale on stage, and offered Manhattan a concert of noir songs.
