When it came to producing this Guide For Performers NATS had the benefit of two authors who have spent their lives immersed in the cabaret community as entertainers, as leaders, as teachers . . . Clearly, Matsuki and Sabella are devoted to the industry and to the art form that has nurtured their individual artistic souls, rendering them a natural choice for such an endeavor.”
I applaud the author-editors. . . for a yeoman job. They took on the task of creating a "guide for performers" of cabaret. In its 400 pages, the book offers a cornucopia of good advice and one inspiring example after the other. The compendium is appreciated for filling an important void, first and foremost, by defining the practice of singer's cabaret and its craft. . . . I am interested to see how the book So You Want to Sing Cabaret will be used as the guide it hopes to be, the manual that can set the cabaret performer, and their traveling companions of pianists, voice teachers, coaches and directors, on a journey to successful practice and broader audiences.
