azz and pop singer Janis
Siegel has two concert tours
on her mind.
The first, as part of the
quartet Manhattan Transfer, brings
her to the Macomb Center for the
Performing Arts Friday, March 19.
The second, a series of solo perform-
ances, promotes her new recording,
Sketches of Broadway, to be released
in April on the Telarc label.
"Manhattan Transfer is a grab-bag

pendence for her latest solo record-
ing, which includes "Make Someone
Happy" from Do Re Mi, "The Surrey
With the Fringe on Top" from
Oklahoma and "My Best Beau" from
Mame.
"I wanted a combination of pieces
that I thought people would know
right off the bat and tunes that were
a little more obscure," says Siegel. "I
thought of 'I Got the Sun in the
Morning' from Annie Get Your Gun
as a classic. I had heard 'Born Too
Late', from The Littlest Revue only
once before, [when] it was played for

of tunes, but the songs from my
album are more focused," says Siegel,
52, a nine-time Grammy winner and
a 17-time Grammy nominee. (In
1981, Manhattan Transfer became
the first group to win Grammys in
both the Pop and Jazz categories in
the same year.)
"Throughout the 30 years that our
group has been together, I've had an
incredible experience musically and
interpersonally," says the vocalist,
and I've learned a lot about working
productively."
Siegel practices compromise work-
ing with the other members of
Manhattan Transfer — Tim Hauser,
Alan Paul and Cheryl Bentyne. But
she was able to exercise a lot of inde-

me at a party. It's one of the loveliest
songs I've ever heard, and I wanted
to include it."
Siegel remembers most of her new
CD songs from the time she was a
kid growing up in Brooklyn, going
to see the most popular musicals.
"I think out the sequence on all
my recordings," Siegel says. "I like to
present a flow that is not jarring but
leads the listeners on a story, from
one musical experience to the next. I
try to pace an album as I would pace
a show and usually put the strongest
tunes first and third."
Gil Goldstein, who produced and
arranged the songs for Broadway
Sketches, performs on keyboard. The
two are joined by bassist John
