A Note on Daryl Sherman

Equally at home in the world of jazz and cabaret, singer/pianist Daryl Sherman is internationally acclaimed for a stellar 14-year run at the Waldorf-Astoria where she played Cole Porter’s Steinway.  Sherman has performed at The Algonquin's Oak Room, being touted as “someone who fits the room like Derek Jeter fits the Yankees” (Village Voice). She has also performed at Feinstein's, Rose Hall with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Dizzy's Coca Cola and 59E59, where she’s been lauded for her band singer role in a centennial tribute to Artie Shaw. She was presented the 2010 MAC Award “Best Major Recording” for her Johnny Mercer Centennial CD, which was used in a Mercer documentary produced by Clint Eastwood. She is a frequent guest and guest host on Marian McPartland's NPR Piano Jazz. Her annual UK tours include Pizza Express Jazz Club in London, plus jazz festivals and Arts Centers in Wales, Scotland and Holland. Daryl's latest CD,Mississippi Belle,presents Cole Porter songswith aNew Orleans slant. Jonathan Schwartz has commented on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, "…the wonderful singer/pianist Daryl Sherman travels the world with our music. She is indispensable."
