Nelson Sings Nilsson
In 1970, the popular singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson
released Nilsson Sings Newman
, an LP of songs by the less-popular singer/songwriter Randy Newman
that introduced scores of listeners to the brilliance of the Newman songbook. Tonight singer/songwriter/Harvey Danger frontman Sean Nelson
returns the favor with Nelson Sings Nilsson
, a one-night-only evening of songs from the incomparable Harry Nilsson. Performed with a 24-piece orchestra
and the band "Awesome,"
it's a win-win gimmick
, drawing much-deserved attention to the Nilsson songbook while providing a most attractive setting for Nelson's simply lovely voice. (Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, brownpapertickets.com, 7 pm, $10 adv/$12 DOS, all ages.
