Nicole has created this show especially for The Nash Under the Stars to celebrate Hoagy Carnichael, who American composer and author Alec Wilder described as the "most talented, inventive, sophisticated and jazz-oriented of all the great craftsmen" of pop songs in the first half of the 20th century. Melodic saxophonist Jerry Donato, sassy vocalist Renee Patrick and swinging drummer Sheila Earley will join Nicole in delivering fresh renditions of more than a dozen Hoagy favorites, including Georgia On My Mind, Baltimore Oriole, Heart and Soul, The Nearness of You, Up a Lazy River and Stardust. This is a slice of Americana that you won’t want to miss!
