I’m a little late posting this, but better late than never! Last month I sang with the David Berger Jazz Orchestra at Birdland in Midtown Manhattan. It was a really fun night, and a packed house. A few friends with iPhones filmed my songs from different angles, and I sat with this footage for a few weeks, futilely trying to edit the videos together using iMovie. Come to find out, this is nearly impossible. Luckily, my friend Jocelyn Hassenfeld stepped up and used her superior skills to create what you see here. Thank you, Jocelyn! Hope you enjoy this song by Rodgers and Hart, arranged by the renowned David Berger.
