Kenny Seymour, Daniel Beaty & Moises Kaufman
"The musical passages are consistently impressive. Beaty performs to accompaniment performed by musical director/keyboardist Kenny J. Seymour....... Seymour's arrangements often create new, nuanced settings for even the most familiar compositions.
Kansas City Star ~~~~~
"Beaty's voice is rich and operatic, and skillful music direction by Kenny J. Seymour lends the classic tunes new emotional power"
