I Thought About You
What happens when Bach meets Porter, and Rodgers & Hart team up with Ellington? It's a new twist on the music audiences know and love - an original, contemporary sound with a hint of yesterday. It's the imaginative, inspiring and inimitable sound of Jan Prokop and Frank Ponzio. With their carefully honed artistry, exuberance and charm, Jan and Frank create a chemistry that's sheer elegance and wit. Vocalist Jan Prokop has sung to rave reviews worldwide, performing in musicals, operas, orchestral concerts, recitals and cabaret, in both intimate settings and grand concert halls. A classically trained musician, jazz pianist, composer and arranger, Frank Ponzio has captivated audiences at Birdland, The Rainbow Room and Weill Hall at Carnegie Recital Hall with his personalized interpretations of George Gershwin & Duke Ellington to James Taylor & The Beatles. Frank's signature arrangements, passionate playing, commanding yet delicate and sensitive touch are the perfect match for Jan's expressive, seductive and classy sound. In October 2002, Jan and Frank made their Manhattan cabaret debut to enthusiastic reviews and sold-out houses where their unique style ignited audiences. Cabaret Hotline Online said, 'Ms. Prokop is a natural born cabaret performer - eloquent vocals, exciting song choices and a total command of the stage and the room. The chemistry between vocalist and musical director is simply the best in cabaret. This is a must-see cabaret debut.' More recently their show was chosen as one of the Best 25 Cabaret Shows of 2002. Jan and Frank's masterful, subtle, jazz-edged style bring a fresh sparkle to their interpretations of the Great American Songbook.
