“Let’s Fall in Love” is the title of her sizzling sexy irresistible special concert event at the Rrazz Room. Cook has survived the stage, concerts and cabaret – and that’s why she is a legend in the entertainment world. Heck, she even did a solo concert at the Metropolitan Opera. Yes, I would say that she is like a Chameleon – she can do everything!
And Talk about “Makin' Whoopee” (Lyrics by Gus Kahn – 1928 from the show, Whoopee!) and Music by Walter Donaldson. Plus Layout by Barbara Cook – she cooks up an enchanting evening for you. Cook takes the old and dreary - and dresses them up and compels us to hand on to every note. She has the amazing power to control the music. Barbara fully understands restraint. Oh yes – did I mention that the entire set for the evening was Sublime? Of course, her voice is deliciously controlled.
What is there not to love Cook in the Rrazz Room? All the greats are there: Like – “I hadn’t anyone till you” and “It Had To be you.” And how about the mesmerizing Hoagy Carmichael song W/Lyrics by Ned Washington – “The Nearness of you?” You wanna be stunned? Well, this will do it for you.
Now Barbara Cook knocks us out with “If I Love Again” (Music by Ben Oakland/Lyrics by P. Murray. Here’s a sample lyric from Cooks voice: “I often wonder why you came to me. If I love again – it will still be you. I’m so miserable without you – I’m glad you’re here.” O.k. – if Cook’s version of this song doesn’t knock you off of your chair – then you are “Tune Dead”!
