Jack Jones Launches Oak Room's 30th Anniversary With A Bergman Songfest

A legendary trio of multiple award winners will combine their formidable talents to launch the world-renowned Oak Room Supper Club’s 30th anniversary as “New York’s best cabaret.”  A fortnight of musical splendor-September 9th to 19th-awaits listeners to the brilliant vocals of two-time Grammy winner Jack Jones, the lyrics of Grammy, Oscar and Emmy winners Alan and Marilyn Bergman, and the inspired musical direction of Mike Renzi, ably assisted by bassist Chris Colangelo and drummer Kendall Kay.

Born in Hollywood to singer and film star Allan Jones and actress Irene Hervey, Jack Jones made his professional debut at 19 and soon thereafter signed a recording contract which produced his first hit, “This Could Be the Start of Something Big.”  His two Grammys were for the singles “Lollipops and Roses” and “Wives and Lovers.”  With more than 50 recorded albums, 17 of which made Billboard’s Top 20,  Jack’s credits include guest performances at Carnegie  Hall, the Kennedy Center and the White House.  He recorded the theme songs for the film Love with a Proper Stranger and the hit TV show, “The Love Boat.”

They were born in the same Brooklyn hospital and from those inauspicious beginnings Alan and Marilyn (née Keith) Bergman went to carve a 53-year career as two of the most respected names in the Great American Songbook.  Of their 16 Academy Award nominations, they have won for  “The Windmills of Your Mind,” the score for “Yentl” and “The Way We Were” (which also earned two Grammys).   Other songs include “Nice ‘n’ Easy” (for Frank Sinatra), “In the Heat of the Night” (for Ray Charles), “That Face” (for Fred  Astaire), “You Don’t  Bring Me Flowers,” “What Are You Doing for the Rest of Your Life,” “Where Do You Start” and “You Must Believe in Spring,” to name but a few.
