She made the room hers a few seasons back, just as she’ll make New Year’s Eve hers with this new run of shows. Singing professionally for over 70 years, Maye remains one of the youngest warblers on the circuit, at least in terms of undiminished vigor and working-the-room authority. No telling what she’ll sing, since she knows thousands of songs and is making the gig a “by request” affair. You can bet that whatever she and longtime accompanist Billy Stritch agree to offer will be as good as it gets.
