Pianist/singer Eric Comstock, one of America's top performers of the Great American Songbook, recently finished an acclaimed four-week engagement at the Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room Supper Club with his wife, vocalist Barbara Fasano. Stephen Holden of The New York Times has described Eric as "an ingenious musical wit" and the New Yorker calls him "an icon in the making". In the past six months, Eric and Barbara have appeared at all three top
New York venues: The Algonquin, The Carlyle, and Feinstein's at Loews Regency. They also received the 2010 Nightlife Award for Outstanding Duo. With musicianship and wit, Eric has continued to meld the jazz and pop songbooks, frequently leading a trio or quartet while at the same time honoring the tradition of lyric-intensive storytelling. He is the star and creator of three critically acclaimed shows which tour coast to coast: Our Sinatra (over 1,300 performances Off-Broadway); Made for the Movies: A Hollywood Songbook; and Singing Astaire. Eric recently made his fourth Carnegie Hall appearance. Other New York engagements include Lincoln Center's American Songbook series, Rose Hall at Jazz @ Lincoln Center, Alice Tully Hall,
Symphony Space, The Carlyle, Feinstein’s at The Regency, Café Sabarsky, Birdland, Iridium and the 92nd Street Y. Eric has also appeared at jazz festivals and nightclubs from coast to coast. Solo recordings include No One Knows, All Hart, and Young Man Of Manhattan. He appears as a guest on Barbara Fasano’s Harold Arlen CD Written In The Stars and with Audra
McDonald, Kelli O’Hara, Marin Mazzie, Rebecca Luker, and Victoria Clark on Jule Styne In Hollywood. As a performer and commentator, he has been featured on CBS’s Early Show, CNN’s Showbiz Today, and NPR’s Morning Edition, Fresh Air and JazzSet. Eric lives in New York.
