CONCERT RECORDING AVAILABLE OF...
INTIMATE EVENING WITH TONI TENNILLE"
Note From Toni...
In early November of this year (2003) Daryl and I performed a benefit
concert for the Reno Chamber Orchestra (RCO). The concert was held
at the University of Nevada, Reno, at Nightingale Hall, a lovely,
intimate 600 seat theatre.
The concert was a fabulous success, and raised much-needed funds
for the RCO. Daryl and I arranged to have the concert professionally
recorded, with proceeds from sales of the CDs to benefit the RCO.
A recording of the entire concert is now available in a two CD set.
In the first CD, I sing many of my favorite songs written by great
American composers such as George Gershwin and Johnny Mercer, accompanied
by pianist and alto sax player, Matt Catingub, and bassist Hans
Halt. Many of the songs I chose were requested by audience members
in the weeks before the concert. Some of the songs on the first
CD include MAKIN WHOOPEE, ZIPADEEDOODAH, SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY,
I GOT IT BAD AND THAT AINT GOOD, SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME,
and FOR ALL WE KNOW.
The second CD begins with four great standards, which were among
the special requests I received, including Charlie Chaplins
SMILE, and George Gershwins OUR LOVE IS HERE TO STAY. Then
I introduce the Special Guest Star for the evening,
Captain of the Keyboards, DARYL DRAGON!!! As usual, all bets are
off once Daryl takes the stage! We performed many C&T favorites,
including MUSKRAT LOVE, DO THAT TO ME ONE MORE TIME, LOVE WILL KEEP
US TOGETHER, and COME IN FROM THE RAIN. We also did a version of
BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS, a special request from an audience
member. We closed the concert with the song I wrote to close each
one of our television shows, WE NEVER REALLY SAY GOODBYE. Some of
you may remember that one.
Both CDs include everything heard from the stage that night, including
all my talk about the songs, Daryls comments, and audience
reaction, in addition to the music. It is the ONLY LIVE RECORDING
we have ever done. I think you would really enjoy it, and the proceeds
from the CD sales go to one of our favorite musical organizations
here in northern Nevada, the Reno Chamber Orchestra.
The RCO Benefit Concert two-CD set is available only through the
Chamber Orchestra. It is not available in stores. Please call
Fifi or Scott at the RCO office at 775 348 9413 for details. Hope
you enjoy the concert!!!
