RIDDLE, RONSTADT & ROBYN - BIG BAND / SYMPHONY SHOW
ROBBY AWARD WINNER - EXCELLENCE IN THEATRE
"I just ran across a rave review of Robyn Spangler's performance of some of the songs I produced with Linda Ronstadt and Nelson Riddle. Sounds great - sorry I missed it. Not sure why I had not heard about this before. Any more LA shows coming up? Working with Linda as both producer and manager for a couple of decades was a very important part of my career and I applaud anything that brings more attention to her amazing body of work. Please convey my thanks to Robyn." -Peter Asher
To celebrate the Nelson Riddle / Linda Ronstadt three album collaboration, Robyn Spangler sings the orchestra charts from three of Ronstadt's most successful albums "What's New", "Lush Life", and "For Sentimental Reasons".
Highlights of this thoroughly entertaining one hour set include songs from all three of the Riddle, Ronstadt collaborations. The second album, "Lush Life", was produced in 1984 and the third, "Sentimental Reasons", in 1986. Some of these delectable songs are: "Lover Man", "I've Got a Crush on You" by the Gershwins, and their gorgeous "Someone to Watch Over Me", "Skylark", "Falling in Love Again", and "What'll I Do?" Familiarity, yes, but somehow, it was like hearing them for the very first time. Spangler has a passion for the music which suits her lovely voice to perfection.
She is a consummate singer with such warmth, humor and vitality that you hang on to every note and savor every lyric she sings. Her phrasing, her range and her emotional attachment to each and every song make the experience extra special. Her banter between songs is short and sweet, engaging, funny and enjoyable. - Don Grigware, BroadwayWorld
WHY I LOVE LINDA RONSTADT - CLUB SHOW
BROADWAYWORLD AWARD WINNER
Linda Ronstadt is best known as the queen of the “rock ballad” with her string of hits in the late 60‘s and early 70‘s and a four decade plus career in music, which includes almost every genre. So those who have heard Robyn Spangler perform know that crossing genres is what drew her to showcase Ronstadt’s career. Linda crossed every musical genre - folk, pop, country, opera, big band, ranchera - and wowed her fans each time she reinvented herself. She was the highest paid woman in rock in the late '70's. The show earned her the award for “Los Angeles’ Best Female Cabaret Artist” from BroadwayWorld.com. Spangler delivers a truly stunning tribute to Linda Ronstadt.
