Cabaret Star Jamie de Roy
Just Wild About Animals

Edward T. Callaghan

ETCH, the popular nightspot on New York’s Upper East Side, was the appropriate setting for a CD launch party for Jamie de Roy & Friends: Animal Tracks with proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of New York.

An award- winning cabaret performer, Jamie is best known for her Jamie de Roy & Friends cabaret series in New York’s top venues and on television.

Jamie, well liked in the theater and cabaret communities, had little trouble rounding up stars for the 16 tunes that comprise Animal Tracks.  Friends like Marian Seldes, Kerry Butler, Emily Skinner and Barry Kleinbort and about two dozen others jumped at the chance to create this musical tribute to the animal kingdom.

A musical treat for children and adults alike, Jamie de Roy & Friends: Animal Tracks is a playful salute to a wide variety of animal friends including little lambs and loveable pups, elusive felines and frisky dolphins, snakes, inchworms and elephants.

The recording showcases works penned by composers ranging from Broadway greats Richard Rodgers, Frank Loesser, Kander & Ebb and Stephen Sondheim to legendary jazz master Duke Ellington and pop music icons John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Animal Fair editor Wendy Diamond arrived with Lucky, her tiny white pooch, who appears with her regularly on CBS-TV.  Also in the canine caring and feline friendly crowd were  Randie Levine Miller, Mary Ellen Winston, Rose and Don Billings and newscaster Mario Bosquez.
