Three Mo’ Tenors

November 29, 2007

Many seem to have their own opinions about music. Let’s face it, a person’s ipod says a lot about them as an individual and people are very protective when it comes to their choice of music. However, music brings this world together, brings people together and in an off- Broadway theater, brings together the Three Mo’ Tenors. A premeditated musical by the highly acclaimed Broadway genius, Marion J. Caffey; Three Mo’ Tenors will knock you off of your feet.

Yesterday, I had the privilege of watching them at the Little Shubert Theater and I was very impressed. They sang, danced, rocked, and jived. They moved seamlessly from opera to jazz to Broadway to soul, and they put on a very entertaining show. Three Mo’ Tenors is an astonishing staged concert that takes its audience on a passionate musical with three amazingly versatile classically trained African American tenors, who bring the house down with thrilling performances of Opera, Broadway, Jazz, Gospel, Soul, Spirituals, and the Blues. A performance started with opera, “La Donna E Mobile” from Verdi’s “Rigoletto” and “Recondita Armonia” from Puccini’s “Tosca”, visit Broadway with “Bring Him Home” from “Les Miserables” and “Make Them Hear You” from “Ragtime”, swing over to jazz with Cab Calloway’s “Minnie the Moocher”, sample soul with a medley of “Love Train”/”My Girl”/”Stop Look Listen”/”Midnight Train to Georgia”– with several other stops along the way.
The crowed cheered enthusiastically when James Berger took the stage in a hat, walking stick and coat with tails to sing Cab Calloway’s most famous song, “Minnie the Moocher.” “Hid-e Hid-e Hid-e Ho” the crowd sang in response to Berger’s musical call. They created beautiful harmonies when they performed together but were equally strong as soloists. The Three even added elements of comedy, donning turned-to-the-side baseball caps when they sang Usher’s “Yeah” the audience dancing in the aisles. It was a delight from start to finish.
