“Peggy Lee was the superb jazz-pop singer smoldered in concert and on record, consistently affirming the power of musical understate.  Chicago singer Spider Saloff, a seasoned and admired cabaret artist, will pay homage to Lee. Slyly sophisticated, easily accessible, Saloff stands as a kind of ideal.”
