A New York State of Mind returns as award-winning New York-based vocal artist Karen Oberlin performs songs from Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, George Gershwin, and other jazz, pop, and Broadway greats. Called “one of the saviors of the Great American Songbook” by the New York Times, and “thrilling” by critic Rex Reed, Oberlin headlines at such iconic New York venues as the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Top New York musical director and NPR host Jon Weber accompanies.
