Carly Takes Manhattan …

Carly Simon, who is a long time resident of Martha’s Vineyard was in NYC to perform at Joe’s Pub on April 29th, the day her new CD “This Kind of Love” came out.  I was lucky enough to be there and share in the excitement of the show. 


Joe’s Pub is very small and intimate, it’s dark and cozy but not exactly photo friendly… I did my best.


Accompanying Carly were her son Ben Taylor, Jimmy Webb, Peter Calo, Jimmy Parr, Ben Saw and a beautiful young woman whose name I’m sorry to say I forget (I think she’s Carly’s manager) and if I forgot anyone I’m truly sorry.   The almost two hour show consisted of a blend of new songs and old familiar ones. The title song from “This Kind of Love” is very lush and I love the Brazilian beat.  They brought down the house though with a new arrangement of “You’re So Vain” which in the opinion of everyone there, should be recorded.


As is usually the case when you’re having a really good time, it eventually comes to an end.  I’m glad I was there, congrats to Carly on a wonderful new CD and here’s to friends she helped bring together.
