Acclaimed jazz singer Kate Dimbleby and pianist Naadia Sheriff “revisit the songs, witticisms and sorrows of seventies icon Dory Previn” (who died earlier this year) on their new album Beware Of Young Girls: The Songs Of Dory Previn out next week on Mommaradio.
“The album is a loving look at Dory’s life, from a traumatic childhood, via Hollywood scandal and mental breakdown, to finding her voice with uncompromising tales of love and loneliness, featuring hits such as Lady With The Braid, the most potent of revenge songs, Beware Of Young Girls, about the elfin Mia Farrow, along with uproarious gospel numbers like Did Jesus Have A Baby Sister?”
Dimbleby and Sheriff will be premiering their Dory Previn songs in a specially created show, written in collaboration with playwright Amy Rosenthal (On The Rocks) and directed by Cal McCrystal (One Man, Two Guvnors), at the Matcham Room in the brand new Hippodrome casino in London’s Leicester Square from 16th – 20th July 2012.

“Dory used music to write herself sane; with heart, soul, and a liberal sprinkling of Mae West wit”
