BUFFALO, N.Y.—As part of special programming, WNED-TV will air “Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Legacy” on Wednesday, September 21 at 9:30 p.m.
Michael Feinstein, the multi-platinum selling, five-time Grammy-nominated singer, pianist and musical anthropologist, has devoted his career to the rediscovery, preservation, and performance of the historic material we know as “American Popular Song.” Backed by a thirty-two-piece orchestra, Feinstein guides viewers on a musical journey of Sinatra and his contemporaries, and how they influenced each other. Through his performance, Feinstein conjures up the biggest musical legends of that golden era using their extraordinary music, spiced with intimate stories about their larger-than-life personalities.
Featuring timeless songs performed in the unmistakable Michael Feinstein style that made his Concord Records’ Sinatra Project a huge success, “Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Legacy” offers viewers a unique television experience. It sings — and it most definitely swings — with all-new arrangements that bring these classic songs up to date and pays tribute to a time when this music perfectly captured the American spirit of boundless optimism.
