Noon Edition

New York City Cabaret Music

This week on Afterglow we feature songs from The Erteguns' New York: New York Cabaret Music .

Compiled by Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, this collection chronicles the cabaret jazz singers that he and his brother Nesuhi enjoyed seeing in the world of 1940s and 50s Manhattan.

Performers include Sylvia Sims, Mabel Mercer, Chris Connor, and lesser-knowns such as Mae Barnes and Ted Straetter, all of them offering up stylish, elegant, and witty musical fare from the Golden Age of hip supper-club entertainment.

We'll also have two birthday-set tributes to singer Ella Fitzgerald.
