The show’s opening numbers… had everything, including humor, toughness and an unforced sexiness

—New York Times (2015)

Ann Hampton Callaway is one of the leading performers of the great American Songbook. Her unique singing style blends jazz and traditional pop, making her a mainstay in concert halls, theaters and jazz clubs as well as in the recording studio, on television, and in film. She is a Platinum Award winning writer whose songs are featured on seven of Barbra Streisand's recent CD's.

Callaway’s newest album, Jazz Goes to the Movies, is set for release in October 2019. The album fulfills her longtime dream of recording great songs from classic films, including "As Time Goes By" from Casablanca, "The Way You Look Tonight" from Swing Time, "'Swonderful" from An American in Paris (and, originally, Funny Face), and "Blue Skies" from The Jazz Singer.

Callaway's live performances showcase her warmth, spontaneous wit and passionate delivery. She is one of America's most gifted improvisers, taking words and phrases from her audiences and creating songs on the spot, whether alone at a piano or with a symphony orchestra.

She has performed with top orchestras and big bands in major concert halls in more than 30 countries, collaborating with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, The Boston Pops, and more. She has performed for President Bill Clinton in Washington, D.C. and at Mikhail Gorbachev's Youth Peace Summit.
