But thanks to global warming, they recently thawed out only to discover, that pop artists of various decades had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Much to their shock and chagrin, songs including "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (which was originally about the woman's Suffragette movement), and "Drop it Like it's Hot" (which was originally about the invention of the electric iron) had become hits for lesser artists. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their original music, performing it as originally composed.

Barbara Carroll's still evolving career as a jazz pianist began when she played her first New York engagement opposite Dizzy Gillespie's big band at the Downbeat Club in 1947. A thrilling if a trifle unsettling debut for a young female pianist from Worcester, Massachusetts who began playing the piano at five and who's family was wise enough to give her lessons that provided her with a basic knowledge of classical technique.

It was at the Carlyle that she began to feature her singing as an integral part of her performances. Following her 25 years at the Carlyle, she is well into another long run in the famous Oak Room at New York's Algonquin Hotel, making a significant and successful effort to incorporate jazz playing into a cabaret venue. Other recent engagements have included concerts at Philharmonic Hall in Naples, Florida, the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, concerts at the Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts as well as twelve sold out performances at Dizzy's Club, at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

NYC: "ELAINE ST. GEORGE SINGS STEVE GOODMAN"
MEMBER DISCOUNT - $5 OFF THE COVER

Elaine St. George, winner of this year's MAC Hanson Award, has built her new show around the work of Steve Goodman, the man she calls "the best songwriter you've (probably) never heard of." The show will be presented at DON'T TELL MAMA (343 West 46th Street, NYC - 212-757-0788) on Wednesday, October 30th; Friday, November 1st; Thursday, November 7th and Thursday, November 14th.

This show reunites St. George with the band that played her critically acclaimed Joni Mitchell show, which debuted at the Metropolitan Room in 2012: Musical Director Ross Patterson, Adam Armstrong on bass and Karen Waltuch on viola. Chicago-based Goodman had a biting wit and an eclectic musical style that won him fans as disparate as Bette Midler, Dizzy Gillespie, and Leonard Bernstein, who declared he wanted to write songs with Steve. That collaboration never happened, but Goodman did write some songs with John Prine and occasionally turned to Shel Silverstein for help with a lyric. There is a $15 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.   $10 cover for members of CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE.

NYC: KAREN OBERLIN DEBUTS AT THE CAFE CARLYLE

Prior to her one-week return engagement in London, Karen Oberlin debuts at the exquisite, legendary THE CAFE CARLYLE (35 East 76th Street, NYC - 212-838-3006) with her acclaimed show, "The Wizards of Oz: The Songs of Arlen and Harburg" on Thursday, November 14th at 10P45 pm, as part of the Carlyle's Late Night series. This tribute to America's most extraordinary songwriters blossomed from a tribute to E.Y. Yip Harburg she has performed to great acclaim in New York, at Caramoor, Palm Beach and in Paris. The convergence of the two titans of song reached its creative and popular pinnacle in 1939 with the beloved film "The Wizard of Oz." The best known among them, "Over the Rainbow," is now widely accepted as nothing less than "the greatest song of the twentieth century." Beyond the music for that film of all films, Arlen and Harburg created dozens of blockbuster hits and masterpieces of Broadway and popular songs. On the other side of the rainbow, the mutually created masterpieces include "Last Night When We Were Young," "Happiness Is Just A Thing Called Joe," "Down With Love," and of course Groucho Marx's "Lydia the Tattooed Lady," among many other gems. In the show, Oberlin explores some of these musical geniuses' songs before they had joined forces, and what helped make the magic between them. Their songs burst with humor, beauty and intelligence, not to mention the songwriters' MUTUAL devotion to improving the human condition. Their body of work is quite unlike any before or since, and Oberlin brings their best moments to radiant life. There is a $25 cover plus a $25 food/drink minimum.

Unfortunately, one day, tragedy struck. While touring through Antarctica, they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow - instantly freezing them alive. But thanks to global warming, they recently thawed out only to discover, that pop artists of various decades had stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Much to their shock and chagrin, songs including "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (which was originally about the woman's Suffragette movement), and "Drop it Like it's Hot" (which was originally about the invention of the electric iron) had become hits for lesser artists. Now, at long last, they are taking to the stage to reclaim their original music, performing it as originally composed.
