Songs recorded live at the Broadway musical revue After Midnight, inspired by Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club, have been released. Listen to the show's live EP here.
According to representatives for the show, an official cast album for After Midnight has not been recorded, but a live EP was recorded for Tony Awards nominators and voters.
The below tracks feature the show's first headliner Fantasia Barrino, who will return to After Midnight May 12-June 8.
Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle and featuring nine-time Grammy Award winner Wynton Marsalis' Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars, After Midnight performs at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street).
The musical, which reintroduces the Cotton Club's tradition of rotating guest stars, currently stars Vanessa Williams as its headlining vocalist. Grammy Award-winning recording artist Barrino began the tradition (Oct. 18, 2013-Feb. 9, 2014), followed by four-time Grammy Award-winning icon k.d. lang (Feb. 11-March 9) and Grammy Award-winners Toni Braxton and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds (March 17-30). Multi-platinum recording artist and actress Williams continues through May 11.
