Phil Scott – Serious Cabaret
Product Code: CD-1268
Availability: In Stock
Price: 19.95

Phil Scott is one of Australia's living national showbiz treasures.  He has achieved success as an actor, singer, songwriter, pianist, composer, musical director and accompanist, political satirist, novelist and comedian.

His extraordinary talents as a solo performer are captured on this wonderful CD, recorded live during his season of Serious Cabaret at Sorlies (Glen Street Theatre) in Sydney, in November 2001.The material ranges from old standards and obscure Broadway songs, to pop tunes and Phil’s own original songs.  There are even two Stephen Sondheim gems, with Phil really showing off his virtuoso piano and vocal skills.  The CD includes generous servings of Phil’s razor-sharp wit and wickedly clever storytelling (some of it a bit naughty!).

John Shand, of the Sydney Morning Herald, said:

"Phil Scott is a seriously funny bloke. All the mushy melodramatic excesses of cabaret are savaged by his witty reworking of well-worn songs and his wittier originals... broken up with some convincing "straight" songs and supported by his superb piano playing."
