Jamie deRoy & Friends
Who says they dont write 'em like they used to? To prove they do, this inveterate hostess gathers some of the best young and young-at-heart songwriters working in Manhattan today, compiling a roster of talent that includes (among others) Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, Jeff Blumenkranz, David Buskin, Rick Jensen, Lance Horne, and Christine Lavin. Also airing a ditty will be DeRoys director Barry Kleinbort, who joined her and the always adroit Shelly Markham in writing yet another new addition to the American Songbook.
