Dan Zanes' list of guest artists would make just about anybody envious -- Suzanne Vega, the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Kronos Quartet, just to name a diverse few.
Well, the Broadway album Zanes previously mentioned now has a name (76 Trombones), a release date (November 17), and a guest list that just adds diversity -- Carol Channing, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Matthew Broderick, Broadway stars all.
The album reflects songs from MPL Communications' extensive library of Broadway songs and will include “Hello Dolly” (featuring Carol Channing, of course), “I Like Everybody” (from The Most Happy Fella with Mitchell), “I Don’t Need Anything But You” (from Annie), “I Can Do That” (from A Chorus Line), “Before the Parade Passes By” (from Hello Dolly with Broderick), and “Tomorrow, Mañana” (from Annie). Plus a bunch of other guest artists. No word on which Meredith Willson track Zanes is playing...
Given that Zanes hasn't even formally released his next album (the Fine Friends Are Here DVD) before finalizing this release, I'm kinda thinking he needs a nice vacation.
